alt: Hello Selma, how yo feeling today?
Selma: Feeling pretty good and you? Are you getting ready for the BIG game
alt: yep, bout 3:00 PM I'll put on my 'game face'. LOL
alt: and I think I'm pulling for the Ravens.
Selma: I thought the game was not until 7 or 8 PM, what are you going to do for 4 hours
alt: get in the mood LOL
alt: been looking at the 'new' records on familysearch.... WOW!!! it is are amazing what they are getting up online.
Selma: Isn't that their plan..to put all these records out. It is hard to keep up
alt: I'm seeing a lot of documents that I got years ago from different courthouses.
Selma: If they continue to put them out there..doesn't it make Ancestry less profitable?
alt: and I like their new search feature for TYPE of record
Selma: Sure makes it easier for us
alt: could be, at least the will make Ancestry step-up and put more records online and also to improve their search features. a cousin who went to Edgecombe County NC last summer and got the complete Will for my Kelly Dickens, she hadn't shared a copy with me as yet. Well, the complete Will is now online with FamilySearch. Sent her an email letting her know she didin't have to bother now to send me a copy. LOL LOL
Selma: Article in current NGS Journal on Black Slavery Emancipaiton Research in the Northern States
alt: is it online?
Selma: Wow..alt that is great re: The will by a James W. Perry, AG, CG
alt: is it about when slavery was still legal in the North? or manumission papers filed in northern states by formerly enslaved people?
Selma: Good overview of the laws in the states as they relate to Emancipation and records that are generated..also mentions Ohio The Ordinace of 1789 established the NW Territory & banning slavery..etc..
alt: right, on the NW Ordinance ... sounds like a good article.
Selma: Yet all of the states in the Territory except Wisconsin, adopted Black Laws. The NW territory wasn't just anti - slave..it was also anti-black In 1804 Ohio put laws into effect forbidding negroes, slave or free, from crossing without papers..
alt: very much so on the anti-black.... Ohio became a State in 1803 & passed the Ohio Black Codes almost iimmediately (1804) I have my freedom registration papers for several of my AA ancestors in Ohio dating as early as 1816,
Selma: Knowing the laws of the states you research are a must..laws generate documents..but you know that already
alt: and I have some records of ancestors fight the Black Codes which were reperaled in 1849. fighting they say a 'bond' had to be posted for Blacks entering Ohio.... however, I have yet to ever find any record of a Bond being posted in any of the 20+ Ohio counties that I have researched. not saying they aren't there.... just that I haven't seen any.
Selma: Well if anyone is going to find them it will be you.. LOL
alt: I don't know Selma... health is not allowing me to do much onsite researching any longer. thank God for the Internet and what is becoming available.
Selma: Understand alt
alt: would you like a copy of a newsletter from the Multcultural Genealogy Center of Ohio to read.. if so I can send you a PDF file. they are an interesting group
Selma: Oh sure..I like reading stuff.. Where is the Multicultural Genealogy Center

alt: Newsletter is on the way. this group has some very good researchers and are hooked into the Diversity programs at Ohio Univ. located in Athens, Ohio. Hmmn, got an email from Vicky, says she can't get into the Chat. You still there Selma?
