RTL News: Digital slave registers Suriname are ‘warning against slavery’

From RTL News, and translated from Dutch by Google Translate: Digital slave registers Suriname are ‘warning against slavery’. “It took two years, but tomorrow is finally there: the Surinamese slave registers have been fully digitized. The records contain about eighty thousand names of slave owners and people who lived in slavery in Suriname between 1826 and 1863, as well as information about the birth, death, sale and release of slaves.” I didn’t recall hearing about Suriname, so I looked it up and fell smack down a rabbit hole.
