New genealogical research project...
Posted by: Frederick Reese (ID *****2364) Date: October 17, 2011 at 22:34:16

Hello,

I am new here, but I have been researching my family history for the better part of three years. My mother's family is Choctaw Freedman; however, much of the stories and names have been lost. I am working on a project to help resolve this; you may be interested in it.

What I am planning on doing is forming a research team to help trove the records archives, conduct interviews, and search family records in order to not only research my family, but ultimately, to create a pool of genealogical information that would be freely available for descendants of Freedman, those of African-Irish ancestry, and other adjacent and related families. With my family, with each and every generation, more of our past is lost, and I imagine that it's the same way with your families. It's important to me that we hold on to what is important.

The project page is located here: http://www.rockethub.com/projects/3596-help-me-to-learn-where-i-came-from . Even if you choose not to participate, you can still spread the word to others. I appreciate your patience in this matter.


Sincerely,
Frederick Reese.
