I found this website which has links to bills of sale & logs of enslaved Black people who were traded by the Jesuits in Washington, DC. If your ancestor(s) were enslaved in DC, Maryland, or Louisiana, then you may be able to find them on the site below. Needless to say, this already valuable information will be vital if lineage-based reparations are approved in your state.
I hope this helps some of you!

Thanks for sharing!! ✊🏿💯✅️
Glad to do it, Brother. Please keep sharing that link.
So far, over 8,000 people were able to find their ancestors through that site and there are probably thousands more who the site can help.
