Among our other areas of work, the MTP also regularly provides free research services to the families and desendants of lynching victims when requested to do so. Our goal in doing that is to help families unearth relevant documents and information related to their relative's murder and their family's history.
To date the MTP has helped family members locate relevant information and documents for the following lynching victims.
If you are interested in using our free research services please send us an email with the link below. When you do so,
please include as much information as you can about the event (e.g. names, approximate date, location,etc.) and any documentation (e.g.
newpaper accounts, historical reference materials, etc.).
Please also know that as a largely volunteer organization, it may take us a little time to respond to your request and to
get started on the research. So please be patient with us. We will respond to your email with 5 business days and get started on
the research as soon as possible.
