Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
i am about to write a biography of my paternal ancestors who come from North Carolina. My apical NC ancestor lived from about 1799 to 1857 (the period covered by this book), and he was a free person of color (who owned his own business), but he was born a slave. I can hardly begin to tell you how much I learned about him and his descendants as a result of reading this well researched and documented book. It is written clearly, and I could hardly bear to put it down.

I definitely recommend this book!

It is a great read, well researched and written. However I was looking for genealogical information, of which there is very little and none of value to me. However that does not take away for the value of the book. John L. Whitney
