Heinegg compiles individual family histories into an account of the communities as a whole in the two states. He points out that most free African Americans were descended from white women who had mixed-race children by African American men, and that a number of marriages had occurred between white women and slaves by 1664 when Maryland passed a law that made the wives and their mixed-race children slaves for life. The arrangement is alphabetical by family name. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
