LOL Deloris - I'd love to see that website, Reminds me of that saying "De nial is not a river in Egypt".
I got a email a while back from a woman researching her line - she was referred by a genealogist (white)who knows that particular line in Loudoun County VA were FPOC. The genealogist knows me, and knows I've researched that line.
I told the woman she had found the right family, and the woman freaked. Kept insisting there was either a census error or that the family in question were Indians. There were no full-blood "Indians" in Loudoun in 1840-50. This particular branch of the family left Loudoun, and went to Ohio and became white. The rest stayed in Loudoun and were mulatto, then colored, then Negro and are African-American today
