Re: [LA] Case Study from Deed/Conveyance records

I have used BEARS for many years, starting when they were in 'Hammond'! I commend the Murray family for their contribution to the Genealogy world, without 'selectively' publishing their records. Before the internet, publications like 'BEARS' and Genealogical Society periodicals were the researcher's mainstay.

I have noted the website you posted - a great resource. I only hope the website's organizers will continue to grow the site and, perhaps, consider expanding to other areas.
I particularly liked the use of Church minute books for slave Baptisms. Pre-Civil War church records (Baptist in this case) are another important resource for tracing our enslaved ancestors prior to emancipation.

There is definitely more to come.
