This website is dedicated to exploring the early history of the African-American Lacey family from Alabama. Specifically, this web site explores the family relationships from those slaves owned by Jas P Lacey of Shelby County, Alabama. The history of any African-American family cannot escape the shadow of slavery that haunts so much of our present through the heavy yoke it placed on the necks of slaves in the past. It is my hope that this web site will serve as a resource for those interested in finding out about their family history and their connections to those past and present. I also hope that the web site will grow over time as individuals contribute their unique history to the tapestry of the Lacey family.
