S03 E24: Researching Enslaved Ancestors Who Were Sold or Taken Into the Deep South

Researching enslaved ancestors who were sold or taken into the Deep South presents unique challenges for African American genealogists and family historians. In this episode, writer, and researcher Eunice Buffington shares her experience in researching her ancestors who were removed to the deep south – as well as the generational inheritance of trauma of slavery.

Close to one million enslaved people were transported to the Deep South between 1790 and 1860 as part of a forced migration. Discovering the stories of their origins poses numerous challenges to African American genealogical researchers.
