Risks and challenges
a3Genealogy identifies resources for family researchers and historians in an effort to keeping history alive and preserving our American history. This project will be completed in 3 phases: 1) scan/copy each page of original fragile Colored Marriages of Saline County Missouri 1865-1870 book, and 2) index and transcribe each marriage record by marriage. 3) A family cross-reference index will be created for the children born in slavery named in the marriage book. This Saline County practice allowed full families to be listed and recognized for future birth records.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
