  1. Hello,

    Do you mean create it on here? Can you do chat on here as a separate group? Otherwise where will it be created?

    What type of pictures do you have? I love pics!!You mentioned that you have a lot of information on black/native connections. I am curious about that seeing that it happened in my own family.

    Shoshone...I was just thinking. What do think about creating a social group called something like "Indian/Afro-American Descendants"? This would be a place for us to chat here, instead of having to leave messages.......just a thought.

    Most people have unlimited access to ancestry at the National Archives, but ancestry doesn't have most records. Most people that look for records there are told to travel to the state to get the records. The state would have a more detailed focus on it's people. The fedgov only looks at the general population. So as far as marriage and birth records I'd have to travel to Chester, and Lancaster. The slave scheduales are on ancestry, but going to the county would be better.
  5. Tonio,

    I think you can find additonal info on as they have Slave Schedules. SC state archives should be able to release any information on ones ancestor if it is available. Some records may not be on line. You would then have to go to the courthouse or town where your family was from to see what was available.

  6. Hi,

    Nice to meet you. I guess anyone can read my messages as long as they are apart of this forum. Tell me more about yourself and any know native ancestry.

    Lol, the e-mail you sent was great. I saw some possibilities of my ancestors being catawba. I looked at a SC law stating that SC mixed blood Indians within the colony were slaves. So Massey, and his wifes daughter or son would have been a slave I'm assuming. So it's a huge chance if the child was enslaved the child blended into the black population. I don't know, my mind is running freely now haha.

    My Massey's were origionally from Chester, SC (Where BS Massey was living). My Lee Massey on the 1880 census was listed as Mulatto (Possibly of mixed European Catawba, African). I should not assum fast like this until I'm for sure there's a Harris linked to my Massey side. Even still if there is I should verify that this is the right Harris we're speaking of. Does your friend know if the state will release marriage records or slave scheduals to me?
  9. Okay, Well I have seen some Black/Catawba. Some of the marriages are recent. Some on the Reservation. My friends brother who is Catawba told me that some Catawba were tracing their lines and found that it was "Black". Lolol We had a big laugh with that one. The Catawba were shaped and molded by white people in many of thier ways. There are some Catawba that do have black ancestry all you have to do is take one look. Brown skin or dark with curly hair. People just don't talk about it. Many of them are just as mixed as we are. as you noticed there are some that descended from white traders lots of things were going on way back when. Just as many of us can not only find Native but White ancestry as well in our family lines.

    Nah, not that I'm aware of. I have not even researched all of my Massey's marriages. I've only been able to get to the National Archives. They told me to contact the county to get the maiden names and marriages of my family there. Catawba though? I thought they were known for not marrying into the black community?
