African Genealogy


St. James Parish Louisiana Slave Questionnaire

The purpose of this questionnaire is to compile information for a database.

This same form will be placed on the Lafourche  Parish GenWeb and the
St. John Parish GenWeb sites.

It is important to document the history of Americans of African descent.  Much of early African/American history is oral tradition, and it is important to begin documenting what we do know, so that in the future, our children will have places to come to in order to learn about their ancestors.

Anyone who has ANY information about persons who were slaves on plantations is encouraged to submit forms here.  Many plantation record books contain information regarding the background of slaves who were purchased, sold and emancipated.  Plantation records often contain information about deaths and births. In many cases we will be able to track the life of an enslaved person from plantation to plantation, owner to owner, by submitting information here.

This information is primarily for St James Parish Families, but ANY slave information for ANY family anywhere in Louisiana will be accepted.
