In Response To: A Brief Scribble on Passing ()
Thanks for sharing your essay I truly enjoyed it for I carry the secret of relatives who are passing. Growing up I knew some of our relatives were passing but not who, Mama never revealed their names if she knew.
Nevertheless as Jari mentions in the “PC age” - the secret is no more and this I can attest too… because I have come across the information in census schedules, city directories, death and birth certificates, also newspaper articles. My research is available to all the family but I do not point this out.
Years ago someone from this same branch contacted me after seeing some of my queries but after finding out I was African American of Creole heritage all communication stopped.
They too migrated from Louisiana to California!
