Persons with an interest in African American history in the United States often encounter incomplete records or limited access to databases. The Virginia Historical Society has done an excellent job of addressing this situation by creating this remarkable database of enslaved Virginians, drawing on their trove of unpublished documents. With support from the Dominion Foundation, this database brings together the names of these persons, along with any other pertinent information that may be associated with each name, such as their occupation or the names of other family members. Visitors to the site can browse the database by record type or location. Also, they can use the "Find A Record" area to look for listings by occupation, first or last name, or gender. The site is rounded out by a message board where users can post comments and questions for other users.
