Coastwise Slave Manifests, 1801 - 1860, Records of the U.S. Customs Service, 1745 - 1997

This series consists of inward and outward slave manifests submitted to the Collector of Customs at the Port of Savannah, Georgia by vessels engaged in coastwise travel. Most slave manifests in this series are recorded on standard forms and include the name of the ship and its master, port of departure, port of destination, and a list of the slaves on board. For each slave, the manifests provide first name, sex, age, stature, name of shipper or owner, and shipper or owner's place of residence. The few documents in this series dating before 1808 list the number of slaves transported but do not provide names or other personal information.
