Nice to meet you. I published that back in '96 or '97 when we were still cranking the microfilm readers. What I did was pull up all the names of the slave holders from the 1860 Slave Schedule and then…"
"GeneJ, you are something else! How did you gather and record this research so quickly? What sites are you using?
I will determine which death certificates I can order and I want to contact Wade at Lauderdale County Archives and History. That is a…"
That's wonderful! Please give me the link to the site. I have my own site as well so I don't know if you may be talking about mine at www.ramsey.tribalpages.com: Descendants of Jacob and Leanna Ramsey. Hopefully, its another…"
"Wow, GeneJ, what a find! I need to spend some time reading off al this. A manuscript about my family to this collection?--I would love to do that! I will also join the organization! Thanks so much for all the info!"
"Hi GeneJ and Robyn,
Yes that is my site. I have enjoyed putting it together and continue to add to it often. And I hosted our family reunion in 2006 in Atlanta. Our next reunion takes places in Meridian, MS in 2010 and I really want to bring the…"
"Wow, GeneJ, your resource for militiary information is amazing! I went to the National Archives today here in DC and viewed the records for Jacob Ramsey, C56 US C Inf. I don't believe this is my Jacob. I did copy some of the files just in case…"
"Hi GeneJ, I'm going to the archives on my lunch hour on Monday or Tuesday to see what records I can find on this civil war pension record. Meanwhile, do you have anything else to share for this record? Thanks so much"
"Good morning, Kate!
This Richmond Ramsey is a good possibility for a relative/community group of Jacob Ramsey, looking at Richmond's date of birth and where he is born. MS death certificates are available until about 1912 or so; I will order…"
"good morning Jonnie-
I found Richmond Ramsey in 1900, born in 1833, in NC, married to Hanna for 45 years, they had 13 children, 8 were still living in 1900. They lived in Daleville, Lauderdale County, MS."
"Attached is Leanna's death certificate and my grandfather William's death certificate. The informant for William is Minnie Thomas, aka Minnie Ramsey, his sibling. Thanks, you guys. This group is amazing!"
"I do not know Leanna's maiden name. On my grandfather William Ramsey (born 1880, as there appears to be 2 William's), the informant did not know Leann's maiden name. I probably need to obtain death certificates of my…"
"I've always wondered if these were relatives or other ex-slaves from the same plantation assuming the same surname--if the Ramseys were slaves. Any ideas on how I can find a connection between Harrison and Richmond? Jacob did name one of his…"
Nice to meet you. I published that back in '96 or '97 when we were still cranking the microfilm readers. What I did was pull up all the names of the slave holders from the 1860 Slave Schedule and then cross-referenced them to their location on the general population schedule. So, now that both schedules are available on ancestry, you can cross-reference them their. I should put it somewhere online since it's no longer available in print. Are there particular slave holders you're looking for? Check out my page at www.sankofa.tribalpages.com - Maybe we have common cousins. Most of my folks were in Calhoun Falls
