It is not always possible to know family relationships but clues may be given in the registers, for example a purchase or sale of a woman and children may indict mother and her children. If the owner died his will may record relationships between slaves. If the slave was freed by manumission the manumission register may indicate a relationship between the owner and the slave, or if an adult and children were manumitted at the same time it is possible that they were related.
