Friends of Friends Friday is a way to share “records of enslaved ancestors, whether they are your own ancestors or not…” I haven’t come across very many mentions of slaves in my search for Harlesses and I like to think this is because so few Harlesses were slave owners, but the ones I do come across will be shared on Friends of Friends Fridays.
