2012-03-18 Research • Talk & Tips
jhonora: Hello bbenn!
bbenn: Good Morning jhonora! What's new?
jhonora: Nothing much, I was able to take advantage of spring break and visted the Diocese of Baton Rouge Archives
bbenn: Lucky you!
jhonora: I discovered the enslaved ancestors of a major family in my ancestral community
bbenn: what type of information did you discover?
jhonora: I had the names of several siblings born in the 1840s and 1850s, and was able to match them with baptismal entries for slaves with the same names/years.
bbenn: Wow! That's great!
jhonora: Thanks, it was a case where the family name "Skidmore," was nowhere near the owner's name, which was Melancon.
bbenn: I have been on this mission to find a slave ship that transported slaves from Richmond to New Orleans in 1849. The National Archives found a description of a ship built in 1816. I hope that this is the same ship. Well, it goes to show you that you cannot always count on the slaves taking the slave owners surname.
jhonora: Are you hoping to find an image of the ship or the ship itself?
bbenn: I will be in NOLA in May and hope to spend a great deal of time in the Notorial Archives.
jhonora: Great, it is an excellent resource
bbenn: yes, I was hoping to find an image of the ship. I want to search the acts of sales. I know the name of the slave owner...William F. Talbott. I have seen some of his slave ads. Do you know of any genealogy conferences being organized in LA. in May?
jhonora: For the most part, did Talbott sell to city residents or to planters in the country?
bbenn: He sold to both.
jhonora: No conferences that I know of, most are in either February or Sept/Oct
bbenn: My ancestors seem to have been in New Orleans and the Florida Parishes. Are you ready for the 1940 census?
jhonora: The Bayou Sara community (now St. Francisville) has an interesting history, and they traveled to N.O. often
bbenn: Interesting! I need to check out the history.
jhonora: I can't wait for the 1940 census, still haven't located all my E.D.'s
bbenn: My E.D.'s are very simple because they lived uptown around Xavier. E.D.'s 6 and 7.
jhonora: Oh really, I live Uptown, near Holy Ghost
bbenn: I am pretty certain that I will find all of my NOLA family and friends. I have baptismal records, death certificates, and know where they all lived.
jhonora: What was the family name here in the city?
bbenn: Sheppard, Gordon, Quinn, Mitchell, Harris, Mack Russell, Clark What were your names?
jhonora: Pierce, Maker, Brown in N.O.; Honora, Breaux/Braud, Dominique, Marchand, Amirati, Dugas, Landry, LeBlanc, Condoll, Rhodes, Parker
bbenn: You lived near Holy Ghost? I worked there after graduating from college for 3 months. Did you know Father Andy LaPage?
jhonora: My family is mostly from Bayou Lafourche or the Shrewsbury area. I live three blocks from Holy Ghost, which is my parish.
bbenn: Andy was in the seminary when I worked there. He is now a marraige counselor in Florida.
jhonora: I did not know Fr. LaPage, before my time!
bbenn: That's right!:} Definitely before your time. Light years before your time.
jhonora: Yes, my mother and grandparents probably knew him, they often mention Frs. Huber, Delaney, and Leonard
bbenn: Your Grandparents would definitely have known him.
Seventies Soulchild: good morning bbenn, jhonora
bbenn: Hi Seventies Soulchild - what's up?
Seventies Soulchild: nothing much bbenn
bbenn: Any new research findings?
Seventies Soulchild: Well I received my DNA results from 23 and me.
jhonora: I was going through one of the Notarial Archives indices yesterday and notice your Mr. Talbott seemed to have a few acts passed before Notary Mazureau, so keep an eye out for his registers
bbenn: Any surprises?
jhonora: Hello Seventies!
bbenn: Goody! I cannot wait to get into those records. This will complete my theory on how my ancestors made it to La. from Virginia.
Seventies Soulchild: Some... looking like my great grandmother's mtdna was from Cameroon
bbenn: L3 or L2?
Seventies Soulchild: jhonora, there is a group that needs your expertise on facebook. L2a
jhonora: Really, Seventies, which group?
Seventies Soulchild: the Louisiana and Colonial louisiana group...
bbenn: Wonderful! Looks like my mtDNA is East African. L4
Seventies Soulchild: che, they got on my nerves... LOL nice bbenn
jhonora: Oh, I'm a member on that page, with Christophe Landry and the bunch
bbenn: Same here! What's with that group? We all know about the one drop rule..
Seventies Soulchild: Very Creole oriented not so much historically oriented... so I felt I couldn't get much out of it. So I quit.
jhonora: Well I think, the major posters may have wanted it Creole focused, but should have named it more precisely
Seventies Soulchild: I agree. But see I'm not creole, though my family has been in the area since the 1700's
jhonora: Seventies, those old Creoles would say thats your problem lol lol
Seventies Soulchild: lol
jhonora: I'm just kidding, we Creoles tend to be very clannish and absolutely love to talk about "our" history The only thing I wish I had like the creole folks in Sw La., is the language
Seventies Soulchild: really?
bbenn: jhonora, it is all of our history.
jhonora: I can get by, and learned a lot from the older folks, but they are fluent As a small child, I learned the prayers in French from my older relatives
bbenn: my great grandpa was also fluent...spoke french when they did not want the kids to know what they were talking about.
jhonora: What was his name?
Seventies Soulchild: Well I don't know French, but we sure had a lot of pidgeon speakers in the family from AL to MS...
bbenn: Logging out- nice chatting. Tune in on Thursday to hear about Genealogy Resources in Maryland.
Seventies Soulchild: I'm thankful that we still had some of those African words and speaking patterns within my lifetime. bbenn had you conisdered Eric Thomas? Please do
jhonora: Anyway, I think that group on facebook gets very focused on reviving the specific culture and the racial issues and not genealogy
Seventies Soulchild: locked up again... lol
bbenn: I will definitely reach out to Eric. I also encourage individuals to contact me if they are interested in being on my show.
jhonora: Y'all know that Skip Gates' program premieres on March 25
Seventies Soulchild: I knew that it was sometime this month... so... well.
bbenn: 70's and jhonroa, when will you two come on the show? Who is the guest for March 25?
Seventies Soulchild: bbenn I think jhonora would be an awesome guest! He can talk about Natchez and SW LA and the church history... bbenn... wellllll.... :}
jhonora: bbenn, I would be honored
Seventies Soulchild: I would love to come on.
bbenn: Okay, jhonora, I am working on the summer schedule right now..let's talk off-line...
jhonora: O.k. will do
bbenn: jhonora and 70's...do you have my contact information?
Seventies Soulchild: Yes I still have your contact information bbenn
bbenn: Ok, let's talk off-line and I will book you for a show. :}
jhonora: bbenn, what you may want to do in advance of your trip, is identify all the notaries who were active in the period Talbott was in business Then you can check the indices for those notaries
bbenn: Thanks for the suggestion. I will do that.. Bye - I must get off of this computer - LOL:}
Seventies Soulchild: See now jhonora, I was wanting to do that for A.R. Brown the county clerk Have a good day bben
jhonora: Brown was the clerk in Adams Co?
Seventies Soulchild: But I wasn't quite sure of how to go about finding information about him Yes. Probably from the 1910's up through the 1930's
jhonora: Well I would guess his records "are" the conveyances and acts, etc in Adams Co., is that right?
Seventies Soulchild: DC's stuff like that.... Also did you see there was a Civil War lecture on the American History Channel
jhonora: Oh, DC's were recorded by the county clerk?
Seventies Soulchild: Yes.. you know we have the Circuit and Chancery clerks
jhonora: Right, Chancery court is the "court of equity" and circuit is mostly criminal matters
Seventies Soulchild: right. He signed my gggrandfather's DC the man who was eventually determined to be murdered
jhonora: I don't believe the clerks kept their own indices like notaries The notary is given such an exalted place under civil law
Seventies Soulchild: Right...
jhonora: You are familiar with the little site that is working on indexing the Ms deaths?
Seventies Soulchild: Yes, I did check it out and my ancestor's DC is there already... the one I just mentioned. I still don't have several DC's for my family that I need.
jhonora: Neither do I, they are slow as molasses in Jackson and charge the "out-of-state" fee
Seventies Soulchild: Yes and they doubled the cost... I bet its gone up again since I last looked at it. Anything new with the church researching?
jhonora: Nothing new, I am still working on my book on the Knights of Peter Claver
Seventies Soulchild: ok how's that coming along? hello deannie

deannie: I know, but if I order them they would be 15 dollars or more
statustray: Yup... I agree... now the 'newer' ones no matter what will cost you at least that... but for the older ones, it's much better to get a person who lives in state to get them for you... that's what i do

deannie: where are you
Seventies Soulchild: New York
deannie: i just go for a yearly visit....
Seventies Soulchild: You're lucky because you have a pretty much straight drive There are no trains from NYC to Jackson... the closest I"d be able to get to Natchez would be through New Orleans.
deannie: I see your point......I would take Amtak...but some flight to Jackson sometime a cheap...for as little as $235.00...if you look
Seventies Soulchild: Southwest is the airline that flies into jackson that is pretty cheap. but this year I'll be flying into Baton Rouge, LA You know, I'm looking for a genealogy group to join. Seriously. Offline.

Seventies Soulchild: Does the IBGS have any chapters? And I need to have some membership benefits.

Seventies Soulchild: I mean do they have chapters like AAGHS?
deannie: Statustray do you belong to a genealogy society in misssissippi
statustray: I belong to the following: Smith County Genealogical Society, and Jones County Genealogical Society.
Seventies Soulchild: oh... well what do they offer in terms of records and journals, etc
statustray: I am debating about joing Covington County Genealogical Society as well
vkn: It is good to join local and State Societies
deannie: ok...I have written to the Claiborne and Jefferson county society but they have not called me back
statustray: I have the cemetary book purchased at members price (they don't offer members price anymore as everyone pays the same fee), I really needed that book. They physically visited all of the known cemetaries in smith county, ms and transcribed everything. The hard back book of 1000 pages cost me $32
Seventies Soulchild: Nice!
deannie: I will written before I go
Seventies Soulchild: deannie, I'm having the same issue with some in Alabama.
statustray: i also purchased news paper archives too of the obituary section... i have 2 of those... they were $25 each
deannie: That's good
Seventies Soulchild: Autauga Co. is totally unresponsive
statustray: I have been to about 6 meetings... on the Jones County Genealogical Society, I was the only black in attendance. For the Smith County Genealogical Society, only 2 other blacks attend, they have been members for years... it's a husband/wife... so when I make the meeting it becomes 3 of us.
deannie: I want to get the local newspaper and that a problem but when I get there I will know what paper to pay
Seventies Soulchild: :}
deannie: When I first stated genealogy that was me..
Seventies Soulchild: Statustray, I think that they keep the meetings secret in Adams Co. lol
statustray: Seventies Soulchild: hehehehehe.....
Seventies Soulchild: How were the meetings statustray
deannie: Adams county is a neighboring county for me
