[IL] 2 Gun Pete aka Sylvester Washington

Good Evening,

My name is Yvette Shaffer, and I am a descendant of 2 Gun Pete a.k.a. Sylvester Washington.

My grandfather was Norris Washington and he was one of Sylvester's siblings.
My self as well as other family members have lots of stories about my great uncle. I happen to be looking for things that we might not have been told about him.

I searched his name on and it brought up your website. I was very excited. But I found that you have to join the BSC, but it looks as if you have to be an institute or business in order to access?

I guess I'm not clear on how to get the the articles written by the Chicago Defender from using this site.

I have tried to google Chicago libraries, Chicago law enforcement, Chicago newspapers, even the Defender but I have not had luck. I'm also doing this on a budget so anything free is where I'm starting first.

If you know any information that can be helpful into finding more "public" stories, can you help me? Also we don't mind sharing stories, however in the past mentioning that you were related to 2 Gun Pete got you jumped on or worse.

I also realize the correspondence about this site was in 2006 but I'm praying you will respond.
