Over the past 90 years, Wilson Library's archivists have used a variety of terms to identify various document types that contain information about enslaved people. Some collection finding aids use general language such as "slave record" or "slave ledger" while other language is more specific such as "doctor bills for slaves." These terms are useful to look for when scanning the finding aids of big collections. You can also use them to conduct "ctrl-f" or "command-f" search on the finding aid page. The gallery of images below provides examples of different types of documents and where to find them in the collections. Be sure to search for the alternative terms that are suggested as well.
