Combining DNA and Data Analysis to Find Family


Thanks to new technologies such as the internet, high speed computers, social media and DNA…we ARE beginning to reconnect the dots between family that was brutally torn away many generations ago.


It was not uncommon during slavery days in America for slave families to be torn apart, sold to another plantation owner. Children were sold from their parents. Fathers, mothers, husbands, wives…all sold away for the convenience or profit for the slaveholder. All without any consideration of the destruction of the slave family. All to make a dollar!

There are many stories of family separation in the Slave Narratives, available in our library section.
