7 Natchez Postscripts, 1781-1798
Carol Wells
(1992), 2005, 5½x8½, paper, index, 82 pp, Heritage Books
Natchez, Mississippi, was under Spanish rule from 1779 until 1798. Official documents were translated from the Spanish in 1818. At some later date, the handwritten translation was transcribed into type. This work is compiled from that typed transcript, which is located at Northwestern State University of Louisiana. It includes such records as depositions, declarations, wills, deeds, bills of sale and reports of disagreements. Most of the records date between 1781 and 1798, although there are scattered earlier and later dates. Over 550 surnames are given, over 100 slaves are named, and there are fifty-five connections to other cities and regions. Each entry includes the page number of the original typescript so that the reader can easily reference the subject. A surname index is included.

Mississippi to Africa: A Journey of Discovery, Melvin J. Collier


15 Mississippi to Africa: A Journey of Discovery
Melvin J. Collier
2008, 6x9, paper, index, 298 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Mississippi to Africa captures Collier's fourteen-year journey in excavating the buried history of his maternal grandmother's family-a journey that took him back seven generations, from northern Mississippi to the Piedmont hills of South Carolina, and even back to a specific people and region in West Africa where his ancestry undoubtedly began. Trekking the paths of his ancestors and their displaced relatives before Emancipation (1863), this emotion-filled journey traversed down an intricate paper trail of federal, state, and local records; other public records; and oral histories. It is presented in a narrative style to inspire, entice, and propel readers into the fascinating world of genealogy and historical discoveries. Collier also uncovered the ways in which his ancestors ingeniously retained aspects of their African heritage. DNA technology confirmed his research findings and verified ancestral ties. Mississippi to Africa is not just a how-to book to trace family histories. It's not just another story about the history of an African-American family. Rather, it's simply a unique story that chronicles a history-uncovering journey that unearthed captivating and heart-breaking discoveries and surprising connections. The author shares the many "roots-digging" tips and techniques that he gained along the way.
