Richard Cox

 Richard Cox (University Libraries) received an award from the NC Genealogical Society for UNCG’s Digital Library on American Slavery. The Race and Slavery Petitions Project website was selected as one of two winners of the NCGS 2018 “Award for Excellence in Web Presence” for a freely accessible website promoting North Carolina genealogy. The award was presented Oct. 27 at the society’s annual meeting. The society’s website notes, “Because records of slaves can be obscure and very difficult to find, this website is a valuable resource for discovering detailed personal information about slaves, free people of color, and whites, both slave owners and non-slave owners. While less than ten percent of North Carolina records comprise the database, this site has significant value for North Carolina researchers.”
