Inspired by a thread titled, "Can You Prove Your Ancestors Were Slaves?" Posted by Sister Destee. I've decided to start my search for my ancestors. Having very limited resource, I would like to ask if there are any Alabamians in the house or if any one know some folks from Florence Alabama with the surnames, Hill, Taylor, Sanders, Mcdonald, and or Webster. I know that the Sanders traveled to Alabama from Mississippi. If any of this names sound familiar to yous, please dont hesitate to replay. I know it is a long shot but its worth the try. Also, If anyone here Is familiar with a Native american named Nancy Elliot who lived in California approximately the year 1920 or up. I'm not sure of the exact location, but she is possibly my Grandmother. She had two daughter and a son, who fled the law after shooting a cop. His name was Harry Leon Smith. He could have changed his name because of the incident that occurred. He enlisted in the army to escape the law and used a alias name, which is probably the name above. He was born January 23, 1922 or 23. If this story sounds familiar please drop me a line or two in this thread. Sister Destee, What do you think of the idea of having a forum dedicated to those who are searching for lost relatives? Family can inquire in there about relatives. Leaving some information that might be helpful. So many people pass throught Destee's in a day. We may be a closer family than we could possible imagine. We can call it, Black Folks Ancestry Search. What do you think about that Sis?
