    Seeking information on slave sales in Virginia

    Lee Barbieri Newbie

      I'm looking for records of sales in Virginia from 1850 to 1864. I have ancestors who lived in central Virginia in that time. I would like to know if they participated in the slave trade. I know some served in the CSA.  The little I know of them leads me to believe that they were small farmers, but that doesn’t reassure me that they didn’t participate.
