Seventies Soulchild: http://www.virtualgenealogy.info/data/msdeath/index.html This is a work in progress for transcription of death certificates in Mississippi. I'm not sure how far they've gotten yet, but my gg grandfather is listed on here and he died in 1917.
Selma: Are they doing it by "years"..seventies
Seventies Soulchild: They are saying that they working on transcribing the years 1912 - 1943 You can search by county, year, or surname

ejmpdap75: Not yet
Seventies Soulchild: Well keep it in your backpocket, hopefully more transcriptions will be uploaded.
Seventies Soulchild: You're welcome Anything new. Any roadblocks anyone is experiencing. Quick story, I came across someone from GA who also says that their family came from Mexico to GA and that they were kidnapped. According to their family oral history.
Sadonya: thats interesting
Seventies Soulchild: But there isn't any actual documentation of it as of 1870. Her family members were all born in GA
Sadonya: what time frame did that happen?
ejmpdap75: I can't bring up virtualgeneal
Sadonya: neither could I
Seventies Soulchild: She didn't say
Sadonya: Seventies Soulchild what is the full url? without the ...
Seventies Soulchild: Try here. http://www.virtualgenealogy.info/index.html http://www.virtualgenealogy.info/index.html virtualgenealogy.info/data/msdeath/index.html
Selma: When did his kidnapping take place seventies
Seventies Soulchild: The poster didn't say when, just before 1870 Actually during slavery
Selma: Folks I have to run..a Long Long day..have a good evening
Seventies Soulchild: I've been informed that one of my ancestors was a slave smuggled over the Mexican border (then likely Texas) and then sold at auction in the United States. My assumption is that he probably was "imported" from the Caribbean. Any suggestions on how to go about in verifying this story? I don't have a slaveowners name, only his surname (Carter) and that he was from Virginia. I figure if I can determine my ancestor's slaveowner's given name and place of residence, I can search for the bill of sale and see if it gives any further identifying information on my ancestor. Until then, I'm not sure how to solve this mystery. This is what was written in the group.
