10 Million Names Family History Project of enslaved people and descendants from Africa

FamilySearch International and American Ancestors are collaborating on a project, 10 Million Names. The project seeks to recover the names and restore information to families of an estimated 10 million men, women, and children of African descent who were enslaved in pre- and post-colonial America, including what would become the United States.

10 Million Names was launched by American Ancestors on August 2, 2023 and the project will result in a free, searchable database of information about enslaved ancestors that extends over centuries during the Transatlantic Slave Trade period—from the 1500s and 1800s.
