The Joyce Ann Gaines Story

Greetings VKN, Alt, Selma and Daviss,
It was such a pleasure joining you in today’s chat! Thank you for including me and making me feel welcomed. AfriGeneas is a vital and very necessary service for our community and your passion shines through. As filmmakers, this is the kind of un-sung heroism that inspires Leonard and I to be at the top of our game so we can tell stories like Joyce’s and like yours. As per our conversation here is I believe we need for film; however, I leave up to you, the professionals to guide us to important, relevant and compelling parts of her family’s story. *This is not my forte, please be gentle as I attempt to make sense here.
• Her family nucleus. Birth or census records?
• Native American Ancestry? We heard there was, it may be from Mississippi and/or Oklahoma.
• Who migrated from Mississippi? When & How?
• Did they purchase land, if so where? Any available records?
• Can we locate maps to show the land?
• The year Z D (Walter) and Odessa Gaines showed up in California.
• Did they purchase land, if so where? Any available records?
• Can we locate maps to show the land?
• Particularly barbershop and barbering school photos from the early 1900’s
• Other interesting facts you may find.
Okay, that’s all for now, below are my websites and contact info. Take care and God bless.
Respectfully,
Dorothy
