The addition of thousands of records of intra-American slave trafficking and a new “Final Passages” web interface into Voyages: The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database.

Later this year, will complete seven years of operation offering public access to details of 34,934 documented slave-trading voyages from Africa to the Americas. On average, more than 1,000 visitors consult the site each day. As great a resource as it is, however, the database is limited in one key respect. It only includes voyages across the Atlantic, whereas recent research shows that arrival in the Americas did not end many captives' journeys. Instead, approximately 25% of arriving Africans quickly boarded new vessels for distribution within the Americas. This project seeks to add such intra-American trafficking to We will construct an additional interface, offering the same search options for intra-American migration as currently exist for transatlantic voyages. This addition promises a more complete picture of enslaved migration, since many American regions acquired slaves indirectly, rather than straight from Africa.
