Georgia Slave Narratives Available in Various Places Online

Back in 2007, I abstracted information pertaining to several ex-slaves with ties to the middle Georgia area from slave narratives originally compiled 1936-1938 by F.D.R.'s Works Project Administration.

There are a few ways to read these interviews in their entirety: they can be read online at the Library of Congress and Ancestry. You can also purchase the book format (it includes a lot of pictures of the individuals interviewed), The American Slave: A Composite Autobiography.

I put the information I gathered in the genealogy portion of my main website, Southern Graves. You may view it in a new window here.
