RICHMOND — If you’re looking for some clues to your ancestry, you may find them in Virginia.

The Virginia Historical Society has launched a new database with over 1,500 searchable slave names.

The database, Unknown No Longer, which appears on their site, can find the slave names based on keywords such as name, gender, location, occupation and plantation. In addition to the names, the database includes more than 250 digital images of original source documents.
