Daviss: brb coffee time ok back

Seventies: reading that article on Natchez... and yep a lot of the info in the first few pages is spot on.

alt: The JSTOR collections are 'massive'!!!!!

Seventies: Indeed alt I have been searching on Adams County, Mississippi Natchez and African American... good stuff.

Daviss: oh seventies about your Wall folks Your cousin and I match Walls on 23

alt: I think JSTOR is a product of the Allen county Public Library in Ft. Wayne, IN and has been used by Libraries across the country for years, right?

Seventies: I will be working on that this long weekend... these are my cousin-by marriage folks. This is her mother's family. I think I will eventually be in Virginia based on the information that she gave me.

Daviss: ok

alt: all roads lead to Virginis LOL virginia

Seventies: So I've been looking over the geography, getting a general history of Winston-Salem, NC lol alt.. IKR

Khathu: No I haven't

Seventies: This is completely new territory for me. So I will be talking with her mother too.

Daviss: so she already has a tree

Seventies: ON her maternal grandfather's family. They are the people who came from PA.

alt: I haven't tried the JSTOR link yet Seventies, their search feature must be extensive????

Seventies: I have found several pages on Adams Co. and Natchez. I suspected this would be the case. Daviss, she had a line that came from PA to NC and were Quakers.

Daviss: oic

alt: AA Quakers ?????

Seventies: She has decided to take up her cousins research documents... so she will be doing this full time.. lol I just got kicked out.. ugh

Khathu: okay, i will talk to you all later.

Seventies: White Quakers

alt: Oops, gues we lost Seventies ... Oops she's back

Daviss: happened to me yesterday seventies btw it will be down to 28 tomorrow

Seventies: She comes from a mixed race family, over generations.

Daviss: not sure when I will thaw out

alt: that's intersting Seventies .... Quakers became anti-slavery, but I wasn't aware of the race mixing ..... In the case I find of them in Ohio they were about Freedom for Blacks, but not necesarily equality and the mixing (relations) between Black & white. case= cases

Seventies: I will have to get more information... I do recall Bernice covering this on her show... Her mom and she are from Greensboro, NC

alt: of course that could be just a local thing with the Quakers in this area.

Daviss: time for me to get some breakfast take care alt and seventies

Seventies: already.. lol Its almost endex here... talk to you folks next week.

alt: do you know if her folks are documented in the work of HINSHAW .. his is THE authority on Quaker genealogy
