"Slavery in Eastern Kentucky" by Marlitta H. Perkins is the first work that focuses entirely on the history of African Americans in the counties of Boyd, Carter, Floyd, Greenup, Johnson, Lawrence, Magoffin, Morgan and Pike. The cd contains taxlists and census records, color photographs of the homes of slave holders, plus miscellaneous items such as slave narratives, newspaper articles, and laws regarding slaves. Most importantly, the author has compiled databases for each of the counties, based on a variety of primary sources, containing the names of slave holders as well as the names of their slaves. They are the only databases of this kind in existence for Eastern Kentucky. "Slavery in Eastern Kentucky" is an invaluable tool for anyone who is interested in exploring their African-American ancestors or learn more about a previously unexplored part of Eastern Kentucky history. On CD but setup like a website!
