I hope that in the discussion of slave name/research, and with so many at IGHR, Mr. Sam's post "parentage of Elizabeth Senette alias Babet Masse and Euphrosine Masse, f.w.o.c" is not overlooked.
Mr. Sam attended the Lone Star Chapter Genealogy Roadshow, Clayton Library, June 13. We didn't have an "expert" for research in Louisiana or for free people of color. In addition to being employed at Clayton Genealogical Library, this young man is a good, thorough researcher with obvious potential. We discussed expanding his sources to possible probate and deed records, among others, for the two women. The Roadshow volunteers invited him to post to the list. He is not looking for someone to find the parents of his 4g grandmother Babet and her sister Frosine. He is eager to learn about methodology or records sets that are particularly helpful in researching free women of color on Louisiana.
