In Response To: Re: Wellington Delaney Moses/Sarah Douglas Moses ()
I have 13 volumes of genealogies for people of African descent who lived in British Columbia. I utilized court records, will and probate files, vital stats, cemetery records, oral histories, insane asylum records, assessment rolls, land records, colonial correspondence, diaries, police records, business records etc.
Lots of information as you have said..
I am just now back into it..I took care of my husband's 95 year old dad and dad's 100 year old sister until they died. I gave birth and I run a business full-time.
Next year is the 150 year anniversary marking the first people of African descent arriving in BC. I would like to get my thesis finished.
My first goal is to get the information out to the Black community itself. I do that in part by going to the family reunion we have of families who settled on Vancouver Island..The other is through the forum...I have lots of information.. But I have been working in isolation...The only thesis on people of Afrucan descent in BC is James Pilton's MA thesis from UBC which was done in 1952.
I am putting the info all to family tree maker version 16...
What I definitely need is assistance with is where I am missing information.
I have some chapters written already...Is this the place I should post them or is there some place else?
Focusing and saying what I need help with in each case will make it easier for people to read the information and give some direction.
I would like to get the all of the genealogies in a place where people can use them... That is so important to me.
Thanks for your comments.
