Drew Reisinger

An effort to digitize slave deed records across North Carolina is underway with the support of a recently announced $300,000 federal grant. The project is tailored after the groundbreaking work that Buncombe County Register of Deeds Drew Reisinger started a few years back. The Asheville Citizen-Times has a write-up on the recent developments you can read here. Congratulations to Drew, his colleagues, and all the other advocates of this project.
