Hi, I am so happy to discover your google hangout. I am doing a genealogy course and one of the assignments is to research offline. Before finding you, my opinion of this research is that it is only for white people because nothing is in the books about ‘Negroes’, or ‘Coloreds’, or ‘African Americans’. I had even found a book about my ancestors’ county and there was only one mention of a Black’s name in the whole entire book. And the book was suppose to cover up to 1960’s. But because of a youtube video discussion where offline research was being discussed by Black women I have been cured of my ignorance and now realize the importance of offline research. And I will be following you for eternity. Thank you.
Thanks so much for writing Carmaleeta! I am ELATED that we were able to convince you that there are definitely records when it comes to offline research. I’m am so excited about what you’re going to find. Keep me posted!
