Abstract "Contained within this publication are word for word transcriptions of advertisements and articles mostly about Afro-American slaves, as well as indentured servants, and free people of color ... Useful data such as the names of slaves, detailed physical descriptions, and names of immediate family members, skills the slaves possessed as well as the names of previous owners or places they lived are often provided. Thus, the information gleaned within these transcriptions will prove extremely valuable for individuals tracing their Afro-American ancestry and for scholars of North Carolina history"--Page 4 of cover.
