Re: Harvard And Slavery

Thank you. I've bookmarked it. As I mentioned a while back, I've found some ancestors here and there who owned slaves. For the most part it was a matter of what were apparently household slaves, not the field hands that were so heavily used in the [more]

Re: Speaking of Ancestry

Yeah, there was a 13-year old girl like that in one of my dad's churches who came up pregnant by the sextant.

I'm only guessing here, but did you mean to write sexton? Sextants are used in navigating ships.

Re: An Open Letter

Probably cost them a lot of billable hours.

They may have charged a flat rate, in which case they were trying to finish it off so they wouldn't lose more money.

My grocery stores have those weight things for produce too, btw.

So do mine, but that's part of an agreement between the grocers and the state attorney general from several years ago. The basic agreement works out that supermarkets do [more]

The fun goes on

The television channel for the Miss USA pageant has just announced that it's dropping the show due to Donald Trump's comments about Mexicans.

I knew this would be all sorts of fun. I'd better get some more popcorn.

Re: Speaking of Ancestry

This question on the Ancestry community boards seems relevant to the discussion. You should be able to read it; the boards, like the trees, are free. With Ancestry you are actually buying access to the databases.

I guess there is a reason that no one else helps her.

The reason no one helps her is because no one can help her.

Wrap that all up, sprinkle a bit of Jersey attitude on top and you get some heavy duty Jersey pride that, as you say, isn't going anywhere.

Re: Learning new stuff

Oh. And the other annoying thing about Maine is that it didn't exist until 1820. Before that it was part of Massachusetts. Except when Gorges was there, of course.

Learning new stuff

I can't remember if I mentioned this before, but in case I haven't, I have learned that in genealogy work, you're supposed to list the names of where events took place, as they were called at the time. And in Ancestry, you also have to have the place [more]

Re: to do or not to do........
