I know I get sidetracked when I'm researching .Here is a story that is a little chilling but yet unusual.Here I go along reading about N.Z.What a gorgeous place .I came upon this story of an interesting gentleman.His name was William Tucker .William was a British convict who was always into mischief.William was born16May 1784-Died-December1817-William traveled a lot and could be found passage on a lot of ships.What is he most remembered for ?Starting a retail trade of human heads!At 2:30 in the morning that is I guess my Halloween Boo!

Behind those doors you can find so much history!If you're not familiar with the archives ,You will fall in love with all the different subjects you will find!Family heroes are one example!Today they shared with us on Facebook all the different stories waiting for us to access.One was Baseball legend Hank Aaron!The other was The movie The color purple and who was behind the scenes.the story is amazing and that movie was so realistic of the time!Star track was on the list of another great access.One thing about Georgia is its rich history!What better place to locate an archive.If you're researching your family tree try to access these archives!I can bet you you will find history of your family.Now are you wondering why I keep talking about the archives of Georgia ?As of November 1st their saying that they might close or by appointment only!We all now are limited to our resources on family history now.A lot of times lets just say a book on ships from the1700 we usually don't have.These archives have all kinds of records .They will even help you find what you are looking for!To me family history is a subject I am passionate about !To us history is what our families left us to preserve and share with each other!You would think that someone would make these archives off limits for closure.This reminds me when art was an elective course in my school.Every once in a while the budget would cut it out for a year or two.Art was just as important as English.Art was to us a realm of dreams that we were aspiring to create.Creation can be the aspect between striving harder for a goal or climbing that stairwell to get their!Here once again history is art already past waiting for you to touch your past and feel the struggles that's due you who you are!So when you see a door that's closed here,You will know a past is left untold to a world that could use s little inspiration!
I have been away doing a lot of different projects!One of these is getting everyone to sign a petition .The Savannah Georgia Archives is scheduled to closeNovember1st.Our heritage lies in these records.Roots of our individual stories.This is a sad day.I am passionate about this as I told them!Researchers such as us use these archives a lot!If these close will our ancestors records be locked away in a dusty old room where they are forgotten and lost!

We left off where Orange County Virginia State Archive Land patent for400 acres (the branches of Stoney bridge River 26March 1739 Vir.Remember this shows connection to thomas11 and John Gully.Aug.22nd.Purchased land 95Acres same land given to Richard and Enoch.400acres On Stoney bridge River sold to John Gulley .
Thomas Sr.and Thomas11and Enoch were all literate at least they wrote their names.Richard was not and signed with an X.Remember school was held when crops came in.Some months the plowing and snting had to be done.A lot of school children probably missed school or didn't go at all.Can you imagine how tired they were after planting and plowing .Then all the other chores on the farm.Remember slaves were still used .Sharecropping too.I know about1941my Daddy talked about not planting until after good Friday .So school was not a priority.
II hate to ask but I've looked and I can't find where I wrote a journal on the invisible Tribe.I know that short one is listed but I wanted to highlight the tribes .Ira the heart eater!And more.Thank God I get my new computer and printer soon!Would really appreciate this!Thank You!
While I was researching I ce across a piece that said body found on beach.Archibald Milue then it showed inquest. Telling Mr.Milue left for Wellington Tuesday.half past 7:00p.M. He had been drinking but wasn't drunk.Native seen following him at Koro Koro.Cant find info.on thus .Would like to know more!
Sitting here with my cup of coffee I had to smile.I felt like a kid at Christmas who just got a new present.This past week I got a real gift.I met a new family member.If you read my journals you'll see my mother aunt Elsie I listed.Her daughter gave me 4pieces of paper with the information out of her mothers Bible.I had tears in my eyes as I remembered Elsie .When I was small she would be at the store my grandfather ran.I was so blessed that she took her time to write this down for me.My biggest accomplishment was meeting her daughter.We talked awhile and she told me Elsie s birthday was August 7The same as my grandfathers.I shared with her how I had seen her mother Elsie right before she died.Elsie said I know you!I knew she did but I couldn't place who she was.Then one day after she died I remembered who she was .The biggest hurdle has been learning to talk to other family.My older sisters remember some but 1800 is a whole new ball game.Right now we are tring to identify some old pictures listed on Facebook on my profile page.Some are so old but you still can see them.Sure would be a shame not to know who that tall dark headed lady whose picture is beautiful.She has such Burrell features.Then again she may O r. may not be.Even if she doesn't theirs a sweet story waiting to unravel!
