    1. [England-Freedmen] Notice about Rootsweb Lists
    2. Jim Jackson
    3. This has been received from the Rootsweb administration: Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state. Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb. As an alternative to RootsWeb Mailing Lists, Ancestry message boards are a great option to network with others in the genealogy community. Message boards are available for free with an Ancestry registered account. Thank you for being part of the RootsWeb family and contributing to this community. Sincerely, The RootsWeb team We are presently setting up email groups at https://groups.io/. If there is interest in migrating this list to groups.io please respond to this message to that effect ASAP. With heavy hearts, Jim and Di

    1. [England-Freedmen] Help Keep This List Active
    2. Jim Jackson
    3. We just wanted to encourage you all to make use of this list in your family searches. A large number of Rootsweb lists have been made inactive due to no messages over a period of time. We want to keep as many lists active as we possibly can and your participation will help toward that goal. If you have a "brick wall" in your family search, send in a message with as much information as you have and let's see if someone may be able to help fill in those blanks. Best wishes, Jim and Di

    3. Rootsweb mailing lists are automatic and are managed by list robots. These robots take care of subscription requests and bouncing (rejected) emails. The most frequently asked question of subscribers is: ***************** "Why have I been unsubscribed?" Answer: If your list mail cannot be delivered for any reason, the list robot unsubscribes you after a certain number of failed attempts. (For the ENGLAND-FREEDMEN list the maximum member bounce score is: 3) This can happen for a number of reasons - some of the more common reasons are that your mailbox is full, your spam filter is blocking the list mail, your ISP is blocking list mail from Rootsweb, you have put an automatic responder on your email.... If you were unsubscribed and did not wish to be taken off the mailing list, simply subscribe again. However be forewarned that if whatever caused the list robot to unsubscribe you the first time is still happening, it will simply remove you again after a specific number of bounces--3--(rejected list mail to your email address). But as a courtesy to all ENGLAND-FREEDMEN listers, I can re-subscribe you manually. Just let me know. ****************** Other questions asked are: "How do I unsubscribe?" Answer: Simply follow the instructions at the bottom of every list mail message. ****************** "Why is my mail not getting to the mailing list?" Answer: Make sure that you are sending from the same email you are subscribed under. The list robot does not recognize names. It only recognizes email addresses. If your sending email address is not on the subscriber list, your email will be rejected. ****************** "Why am I not getting list mail?" Answer: Check the HelpDesk notices in the yellow box for announcements about any technical problems with Rootsweb mail. http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/ If you don't find the answer to your problem on the HelpDesk page you need to check if you are still subscribed to the list. You can get a list of all your subscribed to mailing lists from Password Central: http://passwordcentral.rootsweb.com/ If Password Central doesn't include all lists to which you should be subscribed, re-subscribe to any lists that are missing from your subscribed lists by sending a new e-mail to: LISTNAME-request@rootsweb.com (replacing the word LISTNAME with the actual list name).

    3. Hello and thank you for these questions as I do not know anything about this subject. John Johnson was baptised as an Adult in 1808 Liverpool and the Minister's remarks were - John Johnson, Natve of Africa, aged 48 years. In Canada where his son John Johnson settled in the late 1830's, on the Census, he said his father was born in the US. But could be an error. I just assumed that he was a Slave because he was born in 1760 and at that time period, were they not slaves in the US? I don't know how he got to England. I have no slave owners name and I don't know if he was a free man. I would be happy to learn more about him in England but the time period, there is little information available and I don't know his Occupation either. How can I research him in England if I don't know where any of the African information is?

    3. But there were free non-whites in the Northeast US and they are identified as such. I think Mayland had the most free non-whites, but also Michigan, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Massachusetts. So, beginning with the 1790 census, look for "free coloreds" section of censuses. The free-white section will have no tallies.

Hello Bonnie and Listers: Extracted from http://landing.ancestry.co.uk/intl/uk/barbados.aspx?o_iid=31428&o_lid=31428 Once you know the country of origin of your ancestors, you can use local records to trace when they came to that area, and if they were slaves, when they were set free. And don't just rely on the surname of your ancestor corresponding to the slave owner's surname, as this is not always the case Ealso use occupation and address, age and birthplace (if listed). Parish records should also be searched. Once the name of the last slave owner is identified, the next step is to research the history of slavery and understand the conditions, laws, customs, and practices that governed slavery and enslaved Africans. Then you need to research the slave owner to see what he did with his property, because slaves were property Ebought, sold, and traded. At this point you are doing the genealogy of the slave owner as well as the genealogy of the slave. While it is twice the work, it will also help you better understand the life and circumstances of your slave ancestor. ....
