    2. Anita Wills
    3. I am new to the list and want to introduce myself. My name is Anita Wills, and I am a writer, and Author of two books. I was born and raised in Pennsylvania and currently live in California. My family has a long history in Southeastern Pennsylvania, and I have written a book titled, Pieces of the Quilt: The Mosaic of An African American Family. The book is available, June 5, 2009. The book has historic information about Eastern Pennsylvania and the Natives who inhabited that region. There is a chapter on the Underground Railroad, Civil War Soldiers, and Free Blacks in the area. There is also a chapter on DNA and how it helped me with my search. There was a lot of work put into this book, but it was worth the effort. There is more information at: http://pcsquilt.com Anita Wills

The actual slave herself states "three different spellings" for the answer to the following question's. ques. # 6-- "name of the town she was born in", ques. # 11--"her mothers place of birth" ques. # 17--"grandparent's place of birth" This is were I am having the problem. This is the word I can't figure out : _ianiner _ianner _iainner I can't make out the first letter at all. And the word is written in three different places, and each is spelled different. I thought it may be Rainer, GA but each time the slave spells the word, there are two dot marks for the letter {i} in each one.

    1. How to interview older family members.
    2. This is some more great tips on how to interview an older relative. This was written by a friend of mine. Skydancer ____________________________________ Personal interviews can be one of the most rewarding aspects of family history research. Many clues to solving family history puzzles can be obtained in this manner. Consider a few preparatory tips for making the interview more successful. 1. Make an appointment, before you go and make sure they know you will be talking about family. This allows them to be thinking about the family. The recall process is often slower in the elderly. This will give time for them to have recalled some things before the interview. 2. Take pictures of family with you. Often times this will spark memories. 3. Take a tape recorder to use, but use it only with their permission. 4. Prepare a list of questions. Open ended questions that require more than yes or no answers are best. Ask about habits, traits, likes, dislikes of individuals. Examples -How did you, a small town girl from Alabama ever meet and marry a man from Philadelphia, PA? -I heard that Grandaddy had a temper. Do you know of any incidents that would verify this? -Did Uncle Mun have any kind of experiences as he preached that were particularly interesting to you? -What can you remember that shows what a good sense of humor Papa had. ? 5. Don’t jump from one time period to another. This can be confusing. Allow memories to flow naturally..., one leading to another. 6. Respect their being unwilling to talk about certain things. Memories can be an emotional thing and they may be reluctant at first to talk about them. At a later time, though, they may bring it up of their own accord. 7. If the persons seems to be tiring, end your interview. This can be physically exhausting as well as emotionally draining for them at times. 8. ALWAYS follow your initial interview with a follow-up visit a few days later. Often times elderly persons will continue to think about the interview, remembering things for some time. A follow-up visit can often yield much more information than the initial visit. Website- _http://www.Skydancerslodge.com/_ (http://www.skydancerslodge.com/)
