The web site managers only ask that donors sign an agreement that gives OBA the right to digitize the material and put it online. Documents will be sent to Utah to be digitized but safe passage and return will be assured. The site is especially interested in records of slaveholding families.
If people have records in their possession or know where records can be accessed in a courthouse, library or other institution please email email@example.com with "Slave Records" in the subject line.
