Virginia (Ginny) Butter is the only child of Dallas Butter and Frances Fears. She was born in Shreveport, Louisiana and lived there through the first grade. She then moved three times during her growing years as her Dad was transferred; Texarkana, Texas, Memphis, Tennessee and Irving, Texas where she graduated from high school. She then attended college in Denton, Texas where she obtained a degree in Library Science with an English and Education minor.

Ginny then worked as a school librarian for two years in a Fort Worth suburb before leaving to attend LSU in Baton Rouge for a masters. Meanwhile, she decided to marry instead of finishing the master's degree and moved to New Orleans and then to Slidell, Louisiana for the next 27 years. Along the way her family grew to three adorable children and she only worked intermittently while they were young. Staying home gave her the opportunity to pursue her love of family history and that passion grew with every genealogy success. Those were the days of writing letters and visiting court houses and archives. She helped her young children learn to read by block printing last names on slips of paper, turning them loose in a cemetery while promising ice cream as soon as those names were all found! Sometimes her husband participated as he also liked ice cream.

Time flew by and one day in the very early 2000's, Ginny found that census records were online! What a dream come true! Now, here it is 2023 and there is so much online that there is hardly enough time to cover it all. There is still a need to visit archives, courthouses and libraries but what a difference has been made in the last twenty years! A passion that was born while still in high school has evolved into so many avenues . WikiTree is now a huge part of Ginny's genealogical life; the readily available help and the opportunity to offer help, the friendships formed and the overall comaraderie are unmatched anywhere else.

On a personal note, Ginny has now been married to her original husband for 55 years, has three wonderful grown children, two super sons-in law and three tremendous grandsons. Her life both in person with family and friends and virtual with her genealogy contacts is blessed.

Finding the missing pieces of the family puzzle and the supporting documents is a truly fun avocation which Ginny hopes to continue for some years to come.

Digital Afterlife

Some may think it is morbid to publish thoughts on one's own demise. Since I, as most genealogists, have been searching for and researching the lives of dead people for decades, it is natural for me to think about my limited future. Thank goodness, at this time, I am still advancing in age but futures are all uncertain.

In the event of my sudden and reluctant demise, I want my work on WIkiTree to live on; therefore, I hereby give permission for all of my private profiles to be transferred to any of the following WikiTree members whether or not they are on the Trust Lists:

Hi Virginia,

Thank you for your edits to Howell Tyndall Redwine's profile! Your organization will serve as an example to me in editing and organizing profiles from now on. It's also interesting to see that I am related to Howell through the Redwine line and you are apparently related to his wife's family. I'm glad to have made your acquaintance!

posted by Lewis Powell IV
Lewis, thank you so much for your kind message. I am happy to have been of help on Howell Redwine's profile.

I see that you are an archivist for the Troup County Historical Society - I assume that is in Georgia. If so, I might have some questions you can answer at some point. Many of my ancestors at least passed through Georgia and quite a few were there all their lives.

Sometimes it is a small world!

Ginny Fields

Hi Ginny,

Troup County is in West Georgia right on the state line with Alabama. Many people stopped here before heading further west into Alabama and beyond. Of course some of them liked it here and stayed permanently. My archives mostly collects materials relating to the county, but we also have a small genealogical library and are more than willing to research surrounding counties. I more than willing to see what I can do to answer any of your genealogical questions regarding the area or the state as a whole.

Hi Nan,

I am so sorry and I have been struggling with my decision not to participate this time. I am having some vision issues and need another retina surgery which is in the process of being scheduled. I cannot stare at the computer for long periods of time without great discomfort. If I were to sign up, I would feel so obligated to do all I could do to help our team win and I just cannot put my vision through that right now.

I will be cheering for the Super Sweepers and will be wishing I was there!! Thank you for assuming one of the Leader positions and I look forward to next time!

Ginny Fields

Ginny, I'm so sorry to hear that! You take care of yourself, that's far more important than the Thon. Thanks for the cheering! We'll see you next time.

It is good to hear from you. I have not been particularly active in the Military and War project since becoming a Leader and a Leader of the Louisiana Project and a Ranger. I am still trying to get a handle on these projects and my role in everything.

You can remove me for now and I will reach out as I need help with adding military information to various profiles.

Take care,

Ginny

Thank you, Virginia, for posting a list of slaves to Isham Browder -- which gave me the suggestion (and showed how) to post slaves as appropriate to my ancestors' wills and property agreements.
Gail, thanks so much for the message. I am happy that my posts to Isham Browder was a help to you going forward. There is a wealth of information about this on the USBH (US Black Heritage) project pages. If you have questions, please ask.

Thanks again for posting on my page.

Thank you for giving Homer a father. Fathers matter (I like to tell the kids). The reason I did not set up a wikitree page for the father was that I could find nothing beyond a Find-a-Grave page for Dad. Reassuringly, Find-a-Grave includes a photograph of his grave memorial and even more reassuringly, I find i can read it. Even so, as a source if feels a little "thin" in isolation. Are you, please, aware of any other sources for Dr William M. O'Neal (1831-1911)?

Thank you if you will share any sharable thoughts on this.

Charles

posted by Charles Hillman
Hi Charles,

Here is a link to the FamilySearch profile for William M O'Neal. There are 13 sources on this profile - some may not be viable but there are some census records and a marriage record. After arriving at his profile page, click on the "Sources" link at the top of his page. In case you haven't used FS sources before, you can just copy the citation and paste it on his WikiTree profile. I hope this helps and if you have more questions, just let me know.

Hi Mary,

It is great to hear from you again! Since all of my ancestors are still southern (no new ones from the north yet) everything I do is southern so yes, I have actively added sources, profiles and bios to a lot of southern folks in the last six months. I have not had to contact the project for any encountered problems but I am still plugging away here!

Thanks for checking in with me! Ginny

Because I have a wicked sense of humour, but realise this would not be appropriate as a response to your G2G question — I created a cemetery for you. Poke-tongue smilie (black and white).

Thank you for the message. I appreciate having the US Civil War project and I have enjoyed the very small part I have taken in the project. For right now, I would like to be removed from the project as I have some other areas I plan to concentrate on this next year.

Thank you for all you do for this project and I will consider rejoining in the future.

Hi, Admiral Greeter Cousin Ginny!

Thank you for your participation in October’s 2020 Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.

Keep up the great work!
