 A historical society in Virginia running a unique genealogy1 project.It's using informs from million of old letters,books and diaries to identify more than a thousand slaves whose names have been lost.

 
The historians running the project hope it will Americans both black and white learn about their ancestors.AJ has the details.African slaves first arrived in Virginia in 1619.Now in fading ink yellow paper more of their stories are being told.This is just the beginning.A new online data base allows users to track down on the information about their ancestors in the state,whether they were slaves,free blacks or labor2 owners.
 
Says Dr.RL,you can see all of the enslaved people that were listed in this broadside.More than 80 people came to Virginia historical society's first workshop to learn how to navigate3 their site including a history teacher who flew in from Indiana.I think it's just innately4 human to learn our origins.And amateur genealogist5 RP,researching black folk is difficult so anytime you can find a new resource always good investigate.
 
The unknown no long project and work shops made possible with 125,000 dollars in grands from an energy company Dominion6 is ended helping7 people filling the gap in their own family history,the process,the nations.
 
 
We are not only at African American history,we are looking at American history from a Virginian perspective.
The society as a mass more than eighty million documents donated by mostly by well-to-do Virginian families. More slaves lived in Virginian than in any other state.And this city,Richmond,was the heart pf US slave trade.Many black men and women were born to be sold to other states.Some 3200 names of slaves,free blacks and slave holders8 have been entered into data base so far and the site is updated weekly.
 
 
For so long people did not know who their ancestors were,did not know where to even go to look for it and it's important for people to know who they are because having that sense of identity enable people to have sense of dignity,the sense of who they are within this American landscape.
The documents,deeds and wills,papers granting their slaves their freedom and even passes that allowed slaves from one plantation9 to visit another are now searchable for free with a click of a button.Assistant archivist PN,walked me through a search of slave inventory10 list.
So you've got the names,the ages,their occupations,and values.
 
 
The Virginian historical society is helping to fill in the details of the American slaves history.I am covering pieces of the past, name by name.AJ,CNN,Richmond Virginia.
 
 
Well, finally,we are going to check out a fund raiser for a north Carolina children's hospital.
 
 
More than 7,000 people hit the streets to take part in this 5 miles run and just in case you need to carb up in the middle. You are in luck because this race requires you to down a dozen donuts as well.
 
 
It's the Krispy Kreme Challenge.You run half of the race,devour a dozen donuts or attempt to, and then run back.The participants help raise more than on hundred thousand dollars so they really put their money with their mouths are.Sure someone might have suffered terrific hard burn but if you are raising money for charity.It makes it's all worth well.Donuts?Hopefully,that whole story makes it glaze11 over.The one thing you should know donut puns,piece of cake.Enjoy your rest of your day.CNN student news.I am CA.
