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 […]

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 […]

NEW ORLEANS “KING CAKE”

My Family research is in the NW part of Louisiana, but I’m starting to love all things Louisiana especially New Orleans. 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”. I asked whats that and he challenged me to find out. “Do the Research” he said. So heres what I found out: In the Southern United States this tradition was brought to the […]

SURNAME SATURDAY: MY NOLA UPDATE!

I previously did a post with all my Ancestors Surnames that I knew about up until this point. I have some more information that I want to share. Looks like my Robertson Line used two other Surnames: Robinson and Roberson. I knew about the Roberson Surname because on the 1870 Census the Family was listed as Roberson, but by 1880 and beyond it was Robertson. Now on the 1870 Census there was a Charity Roberson that was listed as a […]

SURNAMES

I have been Researching my Louisiana Line for over a year now and have never posted the Surnames and the information that I have about each one. So here goes: Robertson: Ben Robertson born in GA about 1844. Married Mandy Bryan(t) around 1865 and had 11 children: Charity?, Henry, Georgia, Jennie?, Minerva, Thomas, Cornelius, Emma, Mary, Babe, Amanda, Martha, and Annie(Charity and Jennie are not for sure known children of Ben and Mandy, but show up on the census in the […]

Carnival of African American Genealogy: Restore My Name

I have been researching my Family’s History for a short period of time(One Year) and truly love being a part of the Genealogy Community. With the showing of Face of America on PBS and Who Do You Think You Are? on NBC, I am hoping that it will spark a lot of new interest in Genealogy and there become some new Researchers and some new Family Trees going up that will allow more Genealogical connections. There are so few African […]
