All Pike/Bullock County Probate Slave records

Surnames: Estate records of wills with references to slaves
I have been researching Afro American slave history in Pike/Bullock county for over 10 years and I have finally created information that will truly be of value to many of you that have an interest in this subject.

Because it is so very difficult trying to determine your family ties/heritage through slave records, I have purchased in the past the abstracts from General Estates Books 1-19 from the Historical and Genealogical Society.

In those books, they provide the names of everyone who have a will or probate record during those years. I have created a document that outlines everyone from those books that had references to slaves/their names/ the amount purchased and by whom.

I will/have made it a personal task of trying to obtain any/all probate related records especially as they are related to slave heritage. At this time, I have completed the estate records for Pike County (which of course holds the information for Bullock county) and I will be happy to transcribe or host any information for others who would like to contribute to this repository of information.

You can view/obtain this document from the website I have created. Just Copy the URL in your browser identified below.

I'm sure the document will provide a great deal of information for many of you as it has for me.
