Tracing those Underground Railroad Ancestors

After getting a request to locate a family of a Run Away Slave I decided to begin on line and then travel to Canada togather more info.

Going to Conferences and listening to speakers will help you find more records also.

Building Still Standing

A Friend and I traveled to the back woods of Alabama to locate her Great Grand Father's Land. To our suprise there were 3 buildings still standing. We stop and looked and begin to feel the presence of this family. There was nothing around just a long over grown road with birds and blue sky. The trip was worth it. We plan to do it again soon. 

Finding that needle in a haystack is still an awsome memory.

Remembering the Place where my Ancestors were Baptized . The Creek back in the late 1870's

We should take that Trip back to our Ancestors Hometown.

Cedar Creek

Take me back, Take me back dear Lord to the Place where they/I first received you, is a song that grandmother used to sing.

Placing your Hands on History is the Greatest Thing of all especially when it is your Family.

 Old Birth records still in a Box at one County Court House makes the trip worth while.

Where did Grandma Go to School?
Finding this old
School Directory with School Names in
This worn School Directory packed down in grandma's Cedar Chest helped us with schools in the Area during this time period. Sometimes there are old boxes in the basement and attic that no one has touch. Take some time and dust off those old boxes and chests to see what  treasures are  hiding  inside.
