We have identified new avenues that have not been previously considered through the lens of genealogy. Recently we have provided example of records documenting peonage after 1865 surrounding topics such as chain gangs, asylums, orphanages, the circus, and more. These records have revealed that many African Americans where held in a new form of slavery well into the 20th century. To learn more about peonage, please visit www.aboutpeonage.blogspot.com  Please join hosts Antoinette Harrell and Robin Foster for this educational discussion.
