Re: Ohioi Black Codes-FPOC Related

Dear Ms. or Mrs. Arrington,

I am glad that you posted your question because it may help me solve a mystery I have been trying to unravel for some time. I posted this to the 'Main' forum with a follow up. I have been trying to find a place which might hold the anwser to how my family moved from Virginia to Ohio circa 1830. I will get busy with Case Western Reserve. I knew it was an archive but I was not sure if going or researching there was worth it. I sincerely, thank you for your question.

Posted 16 Nov, 2004 to Afrigeneas:

I am writing because I am having a difficult time (for better than a year) with a certain county in Ohio listing (not yet) information about my gggg grandparents marriage circa 1835. I confirmed the marriage in Salt Lake City after finding mention of it in my gggg grandfather's obit. I know this person is busy and I followed the directions listed on the web page which was to put "Bel Mar" in the Subject line to highlight that it is a Belmont (County) Marriage. I think I have been exceedingly patient. Just to make sure that I sent the information correctly, I sent it a second time. How should I proceed?

To whom it may concern,

I am writing to record the marriage of my great great great great grandparents, Michael A. Goins and Verlinda Payne Goins circa 1835. This information comes from the Family History Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was recorded 17 May, 1835 in Belmont County, Ohio. The table of contents list them on page 86. It is also referenced in my great great great great grandfather's obituary in the newspaper The Enterprize(sic) circa 1886.
