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

Selma: 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 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 - 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
