I am in tears as I write this email. Browsing through these ads is one of the most emotional instances I have had in my years of genealogy research. I have always felt that by speaking someone's name is to honor that person and confirm that they were human and that they existed.

I purchased a 23andme dna kit and subsequently shared my information, looking for potential relatives. I was subsequently contacted by a relative in Chicago who revealed a part of my family history that was both embarrassing and shocking to me- my family in Kentucky owned slaves from the 1840's until just before the Civil War.
Thanks for doing this project.

I am so grateful to you for this effort. As a Black baby boomer who grew up at a time when the US history curriculum taught in elementary and secondary schools was so biased and lacking much factual information about the true horrors and emotional toll of slavery and its aftermath -  I am so excited about this site. It gives an unfiltered voice to those who suffered and speaks to the importance and power of love, memory and hope.

I'd like to thank all involved who have brought this project to bear. These types of notices are treasures of information, and I do believe that your efforts will be most impactful in facilitating family "reunions" that may not otherwise have been possible.

My mother’s uncle was captured by slavers in Nigeria. My grandfather with limited resources tried his best to find him but to no avail. This project resonates with me.
