I am looking for individuals who have ancestors who lived on Pinckney Island in Beaufort County, SC from 1743-1852. I descend from a Daphne and Dick apparently slaves of the Pinckney Family, sold to Pinckney Island sometime before the Civil War.

What is your level of genealogy knowledge?

If you are a genealogy expert, what are your specialties?
I am an expert at frustration and not filling out my chart sheets...I excel in distracting myself when I see a cool new name on a Family Tree and I specialize in staying up until three when I should be sleeping. Despite what I'm thinking...I'm "not really close to finding the ancestor I need"...I am never "really close" every time I do it....
For what reason did you start genealogy research?

It's like Historical Vampirism...we keep spreading this maniacal passion on to others...lol...it's like Outbreak. But to answer the question...I have no idea when I truly got infected. I know I love history and so the mixing of history and family bring two of my most treasured subjects together. So I will probably marry some Mama's Boy with a passion for Civil War Reenactments since these are two things that I most enjoy.
