"Quick Links by B9Britain" are for the citations and acknowledgements that I repeat on many profiles. By adding them here and linking them from the profiles, editing of the reference for each profile can occur from just one place. (Thank you G2G for the 'idea.')

Please ask to be put on the trusted list to make changes (corrections) to this page. Ach, I often make typos. Letting me know when you find a typo would be a great help and thank you.

They envisioned a central repository where county records would be maintained for county officials and the general public. Beside having an official function the Archives was to serve as a county and regional research center.

"Formed in 1833, Greene County comprised all of the present counties of McDonald, Newton, Jasper, Barton, Dade, Lawrence, Barry, Stone, Webster and Christian counties and parts of Taney Dallas, Polk, Cedar, Vernon, Laclede, Wright and Douglas counties."

Computational Genealogy

Computational Genealogy

"... Especially, we want to thank Chris Whitten and the WikiTree supportive community who provided us with the WikiTree dataset."
Initial Greet:
"Genealogical research is a popular hobby. Many people pour over sources such as birth and death certificates, wills, letters, and land deeds to assemble their family trees. A lot of these get uploaded and shared in online projects such as WikiTree, which creates vast datasets of interconnected family trees. Machine learning techniques can analyze such data, and the results show patterns in population gender ratios, marriage trends, fertility, lifespans, and the frequency of twins and triplets.
"On this site, we survey the use of genealogical data by presenting some of the results attained from a range of population dynamics. You can see how the popularity of your name has varied over the years as you explore the trends we've seen.
"This site is based on the paper Quantitative Analysis of Genealogy Using Digitized Family Trees."

"Slavery was a deeply rooted institution in North America that remained legal in the United States until 1865. It took the abolition movement, a civil war, and the ratification of the 13th amendment to end slavery. Though it did not end racism and descendants of these people are still struggling with discrimination today. Use these resources to teach more about significant figures in the abolition movement, the causes of the Civil War, and how slavery sustained the agricultural economy in the United States for centuries." "Slavery", National Georgraphic, Resource, Library, on-line, n.a., n.d.

Missouri and Slavery

"Missouri laws regarding slavery, like many other slave states, treated slaves as property that could be bought and sold.[99] Although the Missouri Constitution of 1820 required that the legislature enact laws to ensure humane treatment of slaves, and in 1825, the legislature adopted a slave code governing treatment,[100] most slaves had no protection of the law.[99] Brandings, beatings, rape, and family separation were not uncommon physical abuses, but the slave system also created mental and intellectual barriers that were equally abusive.[99] Later laws relating to slavery included an 1847 law prohibiting teaching reading or writing to slaves and banning free blacks from moving to the state.[100] Other legal restrictions included that slaves could not buy, hold, or sell property with permission from an owner, they could not buy or sell liquor, and slave marriage was not legally acknowledged.[100] Finally, slaves were also prohibited from serving as witnesses against whites, and they were prohibited from holding assemblies, including church services, without permission and without a white person in attendance.[101] The Missouri legislature also adopted several laws to combat rising abolitionist and rebellious tendencies: in 1837, exciting slaves to rebellion was made punishable by fine and punishment; also in 1837, township patrols were established to monitor slave activities.[102] In 1843, illegally transporting a slave from the state was made a class of grand larceny.[102]"

Cookie-cutter Biographies now bore me, having done 'enough' of them.

Thank you so much, Leandra!

-- "Color.-. It must not be assumed that, where nothing is written in this column. "White" is to be understood. The column is always to be filled. Be particularly careful in reporting the class Mulatto. The word is here generic, and includes quadroons, octo-roons, and all persons having any perceptible trace of African blood. Important scientific results depend upon the correct determination of this class in Schedules 1 and 2." (page 10)

Kentucky Free Blacks who owned slaves

-- "Kentucky contained small but notable free black hamlets throughout the state. About 5% of Kentucky's black population was free by 1860.[8] Free Negros were among the slaveholders; in 1830, this group held slaves in 29 of Kentucky's counties.[9] In some cases, people would purchase their spouse, their children, or other enslaved relatives in order to protect them until they could free them. After the 1831 Nat Turner's slave rebellion, the legislature passed new restrictions against manumission, requiring acts of the legislature to gain freedom.[9]"
