Enslaved persons of John Goff Amherst County Virginia 2 May 1763

I can not change what other people have done in the past, especially my super shady ancestors. (They know who they are.) What I can do, is give a voice to the unnamed. By recording and sharing their names, my hope is that it will inspire others to publicly share information they encounter in their genealogy research that may help African American genealogy research, and the millions of descendants of the enslaved.

My Commitment for Black History Month
