Cornell University's Runaway Slave Project - Freedom on the Move

Dick Eastman's newsletter features an article about Cornell University's project to digitize ads about runaway slaves. This is a great service to those tracing African American ancestors. 

Please spread the word about Freedom on the Move.  These ads feature the person's physical descriptions, their skills, and where they might be headed. The owner posting the ad could also lead a researcher to find more ancestors.
