I keep hoping that someone will post a link to a database where there's info posted on the names of the plantation owners, before Napoleon lost to L'Toussaint and the plantations burned...were there names listed anywhere for the names of the Plantations, I wonder...the owners, etc.?
I realize that there was a split that made some of these owned by some Freed slaves, who even loaned money to their previous owners, etc...but surely there are some remnants of the accounting from those days, in some ancient archives, somewhere...? In English? (I know, I ask a lot!)
Also, the records where some of these went to Cuba, then to So. Louisiana...there were many who followed that same path.
Thanks for any clues/info...Maybe records from the Canadian Bank, that financed a lot of these colonists, early on.
