Learn about the Freedom Suits Legal Encoding Project, a collaboration between the Missouri History Museum and Washington University. Using the Museum’s city directories, Washington University’s legal and technical expertise, and St. Louis Circuit Court Records, this project will enhance our knowledge of the participants in nearly 500 lawsuits in St. Louis—slaves who sued for their freedom, their legal representatives, and those opposing their freedom. Museum librarian Emily Jaycox and staff from Washington University will demonstrate the project.
When: Saturday, June 30, 2012, 10:30 a.m.
