This is my 4th year participating in the A to Z challenge. This year I will be telling the stories of people who were enslaved but made it to Freedom. I found them in photographs shared by friends, names in Bills of sale and Wills. They were from Kentucky, Alabama and Ohio. Some of them left a lot of information. Some left only a name on a photograph and the information in a census record. I discovered some while researching my own extended family history. They all left a story.

I loved your theme last year, and this one promises to be amazing too! See you in April! 🙂

I’m looking forward to yours too.
I see you have Z lined up. Excellent topic and what a great challenge it will be.
I do have Z. There are a few missing though. I hope to pin them all down this week.
How interesting with the topic and glad you are sharing their stories here!
I have always enjoyed reading your posts, Kristin, and I looK forward to what promises to be a fascinating theme.
Great theme! Sounds like it should be quite informative and interesting! I look forward to your posts ~Lori~

(I hope my html posts okay, if not, please forgive the mess!)
html posted fine.
An excellent theme that I will be checking out each day!
this sounds really interesting – I’ll be checking it out from Australia (we don’t have stories like these much!)
Every place has people who need to have their stories told, perhaps not stories of slavery, but I know Australia does too!
Kristin…I am looking forward to your blogpost theme! Thanks.
Interesting and involved theme. My theme is blog promotion.
Good to visit your site as a part of my A to Z visits.

I love old photos and look forward to the stories they tell through you.
I couldn’t find photographs for each post but I love it when I can.
Interesting and meaningful. Here from the theme reveal and wish you all the best for the challenge,

Wishing you the best too!
Interesting, I am one of those who loves hearing stories about the past and I will have to come by later in the month to see what you have learned! This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge, but I am excited and I have already found several new blogs to follow! Cassie from Mommy, RN
I tried to follow your link but didn’t get there.
Kristin, Thanks for telling me. Not sure why it didn’t work as it worked for me.
I just tried it again and it worked!
This truly seems like an interesting theme. I am from the Netherlands and the Dutch were among the worst people involved in slavery. The people victimized by slavery definitely deserve a voice.
I think it is one of the most important things, giving voice to the voiceless so that their/our story can be told.
Looking forward to read your posts! It is my first year, so I’m hoping to learn something new from you!
I look forward to seeing you return!
Such a shame I’ve only found your theme now. Such a lucky event that I’ve finally found your theme 🙂
I know the challenge is over, but I’ll come visiting because your theme sounds really so intersting.
