Levi Jordan Plantation

LINKS

We are in the process of collecting links to other sites that contain information about some of the issues we talk about on this site. That's a work in progress, so if you know of links we should include here, please let us know.

There are lots of great "gateway" sites on the World Wide Web. The links below will take you to many of those, so this page is not designed to be a complete listing.

SCHOLARSHP ON SOUTHERN FARMS AND PLANTATIONS
An examination of scholarly work on slavery and related topics. Very useful, with bibliography.

CHRISTINE’S GENEALOGY WEB SITE
One of the best sites around for sources on doing genealogy. It’s also a member of the Afro-American Web Ring (http://www.halcon.com/halcon/1ring.html), a huge assortment (over 1400) of African American related web sites.

THE SOMERSET PLANTATION WEB SITE
Somerset Place is a restored plantation on the banks of Lake Phelps in rural Washington County. It was built in 1780, and many of its structures have been rebuilt or refurbished, including the main plantation house and some support buildings like the kitchen and smoke houses. It is now managed by Dorothy Spruill Redford, a descendant of one of the enslaved people who lived at Somerset. She has also written a book about her search for her ancestors, entitled "Somerset Homecoming" – highly recommended reading.
