Platting Plantations

Presenter: Tony Burroughs, FUGA


Once you’ve identified the name of the slave owner and that he owned a plantation, how do you tell where it would be today? How do you determine the proximity of the churches, neighbors, and other points of interest in the community? This presentation will illustrate how to find land deeds, how to plat the deeds, overlay them on current maps, and then walk on the grounds of your enslaved ancestor.
