Do you know if the AAHGS is active? I have a query on the site, but no one has responded. I have old minutes of the First Baptist Church (1848) and there are slaves noted that were members of the church. It was called Liberty Baptist church back then. My question was about how to trace these slaves. They are listed such as "Silvy, slave of Mrs. Jones" baptised or joined, etc. I was wondering how you trace them without a last name. Did the slaves usually take the name of their owner? I would like to share this info with whomever might be doing research for Phillips and/or Lee County.
