Re: "Ownership" of and access to slave data /recor

: Hello again Denise,

: I just want to inform our members just how much this site has
: influenced me to continue my research, most sites I have visted
: weren't much help. They either wanted me to pay for membership,
: then buy CD's or DvD's...ect. before I could contiue my
: research, on my families. I think our Nation wants to hide the
: fact, that they kidnaped and enslaved our people. By locking up
: our family records, destoring the evidence by fire. That's why
: they made it against the law for us to read.
: Thanks to this site, I can trace my familiy back eight generations,
: because this site share informations FREELY...
: I believe a copy of free slave data list of Emancipation from
: Plantions, belong to the descendent of slaves, we inherited that
: right.
: Now along with this picture I have of my g-grandmother, I also have
: the date of birth and birthplace and where she died.
: I just want you to know I support you 100%.

Hi Folks: If Denise had not been given permission to post the list

from the Swem Lbrary of the College of William and Mary, we would have considered other actions to get permission from them. My Grandfather's name and his brother's name, is on the list. The owner who penned the list, is probably related to me.

Someone donates their papers to an institution and they copywright them to the exclusion of other relatives? My cousin donated his papers to the University of Pennsylvania,effective on his death, or I should say "his entire office", and his heirs, my cousins never once asked if I would like to retrieve my Aunt's letters and my Uncle's business and personal papers. I have to go to the library Archives to only look at my relatives papers. The system needs some correction. Lloyd
