In Response To: Re: Generations from Slavery ? ()

Hello,
On my mother's side ofthe family,with both sets of my paternal ancestors I am 4 generations removed from slavery.

On my mothers's maternal, paternal, side.Iam 4 generations removed from slavery.

On my mother's maternal, maternal, side.I dont know if my maternal great, great grandmother was born a slave. The only thing the family know is that her name was Mary WILLIAMS, and she was raised in an orphanage; she could not speak any English.The nuns supposedly could not understand her.

On my mother's maternal,maternal father side.my paternal great great grandfaher was a BAPTISTE,he wasn't born during slavery, but I dont know if his parents were.

On my father's paternal,paternal side,with both sets of ancestors I am 4 generations removed from slavery.

On my father's paternal ,maternal side. Idont know much about my great grand mother. Ijust know she wasnt born during the time of slavery.Her name was LAZINE.

On my fathers's maternal, maternal side,my greatgreatgrandmother was a free woman of color whose parents came from St Domingue/or Santo Domingo.However, she married a guy who was a former slave from Maryland,and she had many kids with him. This guy was my great great grandfather. So I am 4 generations removed through his line.

My father's maternal paternal line goes all the way back to France LOLOl. My great grandmother married a White man in the late 1800's in Louisiana,so I'm supposedly free on that end,but you never know:)
