Bills of Sale: Slave Deeds of Guilford County

The exhibit, on display until April 15, is being presented in partnership with the International Civil Rights Center and Museum and the Guilford County Register of Deeds. In 2015, the Register of Deeds made these slave deeds, dating from 1774 to 1826, available online. These deeds show transactions concerning men, women, and children of color. The records provide opportunities to reflect on the inhumanity of the trade in people, but they also open research avenues for those looking for family connections. Several deeds will be on display.
