Researching African American family history before 1870 has always been difficult because of the lack of plantation and civil war records documenting the enslaved peoples of the lowcountry. Toni’s special research interest is finding and digitizing records to assist African American famly history researchers in tracing ancestors back before the 1870 federal census.
