Slave Registers of former British Colonial Dependencies, 1812-1834 In 1807 The Abolition of Slave Trade Act came into force making slave trade from Africa to the British colonies illegal. The British Colonies began keeping registers of black slaves who had been so-called “lawfully enslaved”. In 1819 the Office for the Registry of Colonial Slaves was established in London and copies of the slave registers kept by the colonies were sent to this office. Registration generally occurred once every three years. The Slave registers database currently contains the slave registers from Barbados for 1834. The registers contain:Name of owner, Place of residence (name of Barbados parish), Name of slave (usually only a given name - ifthe slave had been baptized this may include the slave name and the Christian name), and gender, age, and nationality. 14 Day FREE trial to this subscription database - and all records - at

Detroit Woman Leaves Life's Work to Canadian Genealogy Society

PICTOU — A county heritage group is the beneficiary of an American woman’s lifelong interest in Nova Scotia genealogy.

Hazel Arnold MacIvor bequeathed 30 volumes of information to the Pictou County Genealogy and Heritage Society, to be stored at the Hector Centre archives in Pictou.

Ms. MacIvor, a retired Detroit teacher who died in the mid-1990s, compiled the information after many trips to Scotland and Nova Scotia.

The genealogies include census records, wills, land grants, family records, Bible records, birth and death records and marriage certificates from Canada, the United States and Scotland. Ms. MacIvor’s work, which began as a hobby, spans the MacLean, Marshall, Fraser, Matheson, Ross, Stewart, Simpson and Nichol families, among others.
