Re: Louisiana Redbones
In Response To: Re: Louisiana Redbones ()

My first suggestion is that you follow Richard's advice.
The more you know about your family, the easier it will be to trace them back in time AND to connect to others tracing the same family group.

Start with yourself; your parent(s), grandparents, great-grands, back to about 1930 (birth).

Record names, births/deaths, places, using a genealogy form (ancestry / pedigree Chart) to keep track of the initial information.
[Check the Beginners' guide on this site for more information.]

Next, re-post to this forum, or the SURNAME forum on this site, when you get more information.
There are many researchers here that can guide you through the next part of your family history research. They will need names, dates and places (birth/death).
I suggest you not give identifying information on known living individuals (since your family is private, as is mine).

My last bit of advice is to contact one of the Redbone societies in an area your ancestor lived. The poster just before you was from the Louisiana Redbone Heritage Foundation.
A society that concentrates on Rebones will be able to help you understand the history of Redbones in Louisiana, Texas, and the south. You may also get recommendations on resources and contacts to continue your Redbone research.

Remember, you can always post on this site for additional guidance.
