This new page at Reclaiming Kin will a host a repository for tools and articles. It will have a special focus on researching slavery. It’s just getting started, but I’m hoping over time this will develop into something really useful.
Historian David E. Paterson was kind enough to share discussions of sources he’s used while researching the enslaved in Upton County, Georgia.
Mr. Patterson has several resources archived at Afrigeneas that I recommend, especially for those researching in Georgia.
Some lesser known records that may be useful in researching the enslaved include:
Paterson’s Guide to Lesser Known Records of Slavery
Other Paterson creations:
(A Personal Favorite of Mine)
Intro to Correspondence of the Freedmens Bureau
