Southern genealogy research has its challenges. Ari Wilkins from the Dallas Public Library shares an often-overlooked resource: plantation records. 

Ari shares how this massive collection was put together, where to find these records, and what you'll find in them. 

These records are useful whether your ancestor was enslaved, a wealthy plantation owner, or a member of community (with or without slaves). 

Dealing with a burned county? Then you definitely want to work in plantation records, as these records weren't at the courthouse! 

You can find the show notes at AmyJohnsonCrow.com/7
