AfriGeneas Free Persons of Color Forum

Re: "Free" vs. "Freed".
In Response To: Re: "Free" vs. "Freed". ()

To: Carole (Proctor) Cook

AfriGeneas has over 20 forums, each with their own mission statements. The idea is to assist researchers in their search of “non-white folk” depending on their level of research, the time frame these ancestors were living, the places these ancestors were living in at any given time, and their status as enslaved or free. I suspect, that many folks don’t read the mission statements for many forums and are just so happy when they discover AfriGeneas they post wherever they are.

The goal for those of us who respond is to give information as you say in the “context of that era” in which the ancestors were living, aiding them in understanding the records they find or are looking for.

Questioning folks intelligence is counter- productive to the mission of the Website, teaching them is the point.
