Colored Designation (was:Re: HELP PLEASE!!}
In Response To: NC Designation Colored ()
No having some one identified as Colored does not mean that they were Native American...doesn't mean they weren't either, but at this point in your research.....your main aim should be to find people in the census in a specific state, county, etc...however they are described.
It might be really helpful if you gave us some dates for one when these people were born, died, married. It doesn't have to be exact approximate is OK. This allows us to put this information in a "context" of time and space. It will also allow us to tell you how to look for them on the census.
Also a good idea to put something else in your subject line besides: "HELP"........like the surname you are researching, State and county.
