Images of Slave Registers

Here are some pictures of logbooks showing African names from International Court registers created in Freetown, Sierra Leone and Havana, Cuba  between 1819 and 1845.  The registers were kept as a formal record of emancipation that helped protect the individual from subsequent re-enslavement. The images are reproduced courtesy of the British National Archives.
