SENTIMENTAL SUNDAY: WHY I FOUND MY ANCESTORS A HOME(MY BLOG)

Since starting my Genealogy Journey in 2009 I have come a long way and one thing I know for sure is that there is no way to make true Connections without finding your Ancestors a home. I started out as a Client of Luckie Daniels back in 2009. One thing that she told me was that technology is changing and that there is more to Researching than Ancestry.com Then she said let me show you and she told me to Google […]

I’VE BEEN BITTEN BY THE GENEALOGY BUG, AGAIN!!

It has been a while since I have done any research or even thought about my Family History. Not because it wasn’t important to me, but Life just gets in the way sometime and our hobbies always end up taking a back seat. Now that the Ancestors are stirring again, there is no way for me to ignore them. My Nola line has always been the most funniest and sometime easiest line to Research considering that the family stayed in […]

SENTIMENTAL SUNDAY: ANOTHER STORY PROVEN TRUE!!

As a little girl growing up, I always heard my Mom say that she had a sister that died during Child Birth. Of course when I started my Research, a lot of the stories I heard growing up were and are still not proven. For sure now I am able to prove one. I was on Ancestry.com and noticed that my Grandmother had a leaf and her information was bumping up against the information that someone had in their tree(actually it […]

SURNAME SATURDAY: “AMOS”

I recently had the pleasure of communicating with an “Amos” descendant. Thats right a “New Cousin” Her Great Great Grandfather Daniel Amos was Father of my Great Grandfather James Manuel Amos. Let me share what I know about James: James Manuel Amos was born about 1870 in Minden, Louisiana. He had 4 children by my Great Grandmother Amanda Robertson from Cotton Valley, LA. Not sure if they were married or not, I have yet to find a Marriage Record.  There names were James, […]

WORDY WEDNESDAY: FROM GEORGIA TO LOUISIANA HODGES, BRYAN, ROBERS, & OTHERS!

I have researched my Maternal and Paternal lines of my Ancestry back to 1870. Sometime we as African American Researchers can get stuck at this point because prior to 1870 our Ancestors was considered property. I refused to be stuck and pressed on in pursuit of a Slaveowner for my Nola Ancestors. I previously did a post asking was the “Hodges” my Ancestor’s Slaveowner. I assumed this to be so because I was going on the theory that they were […]

SENTIMENTAL SUNDAY: WHY I VOLUNTEER!!

I wrote this post in October 2010 and never posted. I now want to share what my thoughts were at that time: WoW, it has been a while since I posted on my Blog. In November of 2009, I became unemployed. At that time I knew I wanted to take sometime off, so I got to travel, read, and do some research. When I started to look for work again, it turned out to be harder than I imagined and I […]

I’ve grown to love the music and now starting to get into the food from the city. I was speaking with a friend and he mentioned “King Cake”.
