Mama's Bible

Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors and lawyers.

One evening, they chatted after having dinner together.

They discussed the 95th birthday gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who moved to Florida .

The first said, "You know I had a big house built for Mama."

The second said, "And I had a large theater built in the…

Why Do So Few Blacks Study the Civil War?

In my seventh-grade year, my school took a bus trip from our native Baltimore to Gettys­burg, Pennsylvania, the sanctified epicenter of American tragedy. It was the mid-’80s, when educators in our inner cities, confronted by the onslaught of crack, Saturday Night Specials, and teen pregnancy, were calling on all…

Back When We Were Negroes

'Back When We Were Negroes’

By Charles E. Richardson

Posted on Sun, Jul. 31, 2011 in the Macon Telegraph

There was a time until the early 1960s when the terms to describe those of African decent, like me -- African-American or Black or Afro-American -- were almost unheard of.

I remember a distinct conversation with a friend discussing descriptive terms for ourselves in 1963 or ’64. The term “black” was just coming into vogue and he didn’t like it one bit.…

Well Worth The Read

A young lady confidently walked around the room while leading and explaining stress management to an audience; with a raised glass of water, and everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, 'half empty or half full?'..... she fooled them all... "How heavy is this glass of water?", she inquired with a smile.

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute,…

Thank you so much for the welcome! This website is a blessing and I have been researching my ancestry after watching the original airing of Roots the miniseries on television in 1978.

Thank you and God bless you!

Hi Vicky,

I am so sorry to reply so late, I suspect Emma's maiden name is Thompson but I am not sure since I am not in contact with any living people from that line. I found a name on a record for the death of Emma Johnson in Jacksonville Florida showing her fathers name as Eddie Thompson, no mothers name. Then I found a Eddie Thomson on census records in Jacksonville, showing him being born in SC.

Both Alexander and Emma were on the 1910 Florida census, I need to see if death certificates are there for them.

I don't know where to start: previous attempts indicated a fire in the Court House in early 1900s destroyed most records of Andersons in Buckingham County, Virginia; my parents are now both deceased and most other relatives are aged; there are a number of Andersons in Dillwyn, VA (Anderson highway, Anderson post office) but all are white and offer no assistance in my research. I'm traveling to the area in a month or so. Any ideas?

I'm sorry a wrote something to you on the previous comment that was meant as a response to someone else.  I have no Williams connections in Texas as far as I know.  If so, they would have located there relatively recently.  My Williams are from Montgomery and Birmingham, AL.
