“Last Seen : Finding Family After Slavery” is an incredible website for searching your ex-slave ancestors. The site features copies of newspaper ads that were placed by people looking for their family members that had been slaves. The site is maintained as a project by graduate students studying history at Villanova University. The students scour old microfilmed newspapers ads, copy them, and include them in their online searchable database. To date, the students have posted 2,658 advertisements that are searchable and viewable (with images) for FREE! Visit their website at : http://informationwanted.org
