Slave ownership database

University College London has compiled a slave-ownership database for the 46,000 people who were compensated for their losses at the end of slavery.  If you go to the UCL website for the slave ownership database, you can put in the names of your ancestors and discover if they owned slaves, as between 10 and 15% of the British population are said to have done.
