About This Session

Slavery’s force was felt far north of the Mason-Dixon Line, and the Black Laws of northern states created valuable records for tracing African-American families. Learn how understanding this law and its records can be uniquely rewarding for descendants of slaves and slaveowners alike, and of those who were their neighbors and friends. 

No registration is necessary. Visit our website on December 1 for the livestream feed, or sign up below to receive an email reminder the day of the session.
