"...some eleven hundred black Americans-men, women, and children; some slave, some freedmen, some freeborn; most from Maryland-did emigrate to Cape Palmas between 1833 and 1856...They went to Africa for precisely the same reasons that inspired the westward movement of European settlers across North America: cheap or free land, economic opportunity, the chance to live, think, and worship in freedom, and the prospect that succeeding generations wuld have better lives. Moreover, settlers of Maryland In Liberia had a sense that they must prove a point to the rest of the world-that they could live and prosper as well as any other community. On Afric's Shore records their efforts do just that." -- Introd.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
