There are approximately 3.9 million individuals noted on the 1860 U.S. Census Slave Schedule. That is about 40% of the population of the southern states at the time.
ProQuest has partnered with Ancestry.com to create Ancestry® Library Edition, one of the most important genealogical collections available today. It has unparalleled coverage of the United States and the United Kingdom, including census, vital, church, court, and immigration records, as well as record collections from Canada, Europe, Australia and other areas of the world! This collection, with thousands of databases and billions of indexed names, is essential to having a broad genealogy collection, and its valuable content is a strong complement to HeritageQuest® Online.
What's new in Ancestry Library Edition? SLIDERS!
On left side of the results page, you will now notice there are sliders visible to broaden or narrow your results based on exact or similar matching for each search term...
Too many results? Too few results? Just not finding what you are looking for? Adjust one or more sliders left-to-right and click "Update" to refine your results. Sliding the slider to the right will add specificity to your results, or make the results more exact, while moving the slider to the left will broaden the results.
NOTE: Sliders can be used in conjunction with the All Categories facets to further refine your results.
TIP: Use the Advanced Search page exact match options to add precision to your search. If your results still need refining, the sliders and narrowing facets will be available!
