Slavery Era Insurance Policies Registry

Apparently, slave owners took out insurance policies on their slaves. Who knew? Anyway, the State of Illinois passed a law, effective 1 Jan 2004, that required insurance companies to compile and report these policies – which many of them apparently did. Again, who knew? We’ve plucked those names out of that State of Illinois’ database, formatted them and have sorted them according to state, then by county, then by the Slave Holder Name.
