We would like to acknowledge individuals who have generously offered support to the Slave Biographies project.  Some have submitted datasets for the development team to review, others have commented on the proposed data structure and fields, while still others have offered insights into the technical challenges and the rewarding possibilities of building a freely accessible web database on the identities of enslaved people in the Atlantic World.
