10 Databases for Slave Genealogy Research - by Kimberly Powell Updated April 28, 2017 via https://www.thoughtco.com/great-databases-for-slave-genealogy-1421640 Slavery presents a huge obstacle for anyone tracing African American lineages. Because slaves were treated as property—in some cases listed after livestock in estate inventories and other records of property—evidence that can help put African American families together is often difficult to come by. These online slave databases and record collections are great resources for anyone navigating the challenge of slavery research.

he Mason Esker is the longest esker in the northern hemisphere. It begins in DeWitt, Michigan, and runs south and a bit east. It extends to a point south of the town of Mason, Michigan.

Maps of Michigan are an invaluable element of genealogy and family tree research, especially in the event you live faraway from where your ancestor was living. Because Michigan political borders sometimes changed, historic maps are generally important in helping you find out the precise location of your ancestor’s home, just what land they owned, just who their neighbors ended up being, and a lot more.
