As we all know some progress can turn out to be no progress. I was excited to see a link that could answer some question as to how my family got to LA from GA. It turned out that I had really more questions than answers and really may have jumped the gun a little as to this link having information on my ancestors. I sat scratching my head to the responses to my blog, I understood what my Genealogy […]


AS I sit here today I just knew I was at a dead end with my research of my LA line, but as we all know there are no dead ends, because when a door closes GOD always opens a window. Maybe about a month ago I was trying to locate Ben and Mandy in the 1870 Census in Webster Parish. No luck, but then I remembered that I read somewhere that Bossier, Bienville, and Clairbourne Parishes merged around 1876 and thus formed […]


EMMA ROBERTSON: 1876-1941 As you all know I recieved feedback from a post that I have left on ancestry and actually Mr. McMurray was one of the persons that I sent my letter to in Quest For Information. Here is his response: Felicia, WOW! I can’t believe how serendipitous your letter is for me. I was just about to wade back into this family history since I’m having to do a historical book on THOMASVILLE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL here in Sarepta. […]


In modern time for Friday we say “TGIF”, but did our ancestors say that? I think not! Even after freedom. My great great grandfather Ben Robertson owned his own land and farmed on that land. From census record in 1880, all children over 10 worked that farm, so that meant his eldest Henry and Georgia had to work. Minvera and Thomas was able to get some education but you can believe as soon as they were old enough they worked […]


In my research for my Louisiana line I realized that there were three boys in the family: Henry Robertson born abt 1868, Cane Robertson born 1874, and Thos Robertson born abt 1872. Now I had to really figure out what those two brothers names stood for. We all had nicknames as children. In my research I would always come up against this names Corneilus Robertson in Webster Parish Jury Ward 2. I decided to save the record to my shoebox, […]


Madness Mondays are about those ancestors that are a mystery or you just can not find!! I have been searching for Amanda Robertson in 1900 for the longest. Could she have been in the household with Ben and Mandy and just not have been counted? Or was she outside of the house living with another relative and not have been counted? I have searched that whole 1900 census record for Policy Jury Ward 2 Webster Parish to no avail. She […]

My First Post

Hello, As I sit here today in 2009, I have always been fixated on the past. Reading, Movies, etc. Whatever contained the past (anything before 1960). That’s why I decided to trace my family and do a family tree. As I began I found out that my mom did not have a whole lot of information on both sides of her line. So my journey began. I started with the information that was given to me by my mom, by […]
