This is the fifth and final volume in a series by Michael A. Ports; it consists of transcriptions of the free black registers for Richmond County, Georgia. Mr. Ports has arranged the contents in a series of tables, and chronologically thereunder, according to the dates of coverage of the three registers from which they are derived. He has provided an overview of each register, allowing for variations in their original format, references to any gaps in the registers, handwriting irregularities or peculiarities, and so on. In addition to the required information, a few clerks recorded the registrant’s height, weight, skin color, and name of their guardian.
