Join Genealogist Jim W. Petty for a discussion of his research on Black Slavery Emancipation Research in the Northern States and learn about the four categories of records that provide genealogical data on enslaved people in Northern states before the Civil War.
Beginning in 2010, Jim became interested in African American Genealogy Studies upon following client genealogy into the Slave culture of Rhode Island. Upon learning about the concept of Slavery in all States in America, and the eventual “gradual emancipation” of Black Slaves in each of the Northern States, he realized that a product of the emancipation movement was the creation of Slave birth records from as early as 1777, and continuing until national emancipation in 1865. These records led to the keeping of other records relating to African Americans in the Northern States, which will hopefully become a resource for researchers throughout the United States.
Currently Jim has been collecting and abstracting Slave Birth Records for the State of New Jersey from 1804 to 1865, with the goal of publishing his findings during the 2015-2016 sesquicentennial of Slave Emancipation in the U.S. (1865-1866).
Jim has a degree in Genealogy Technology from Brigham Young University, and has been certified as a Genealogist and a Genealogy Records Searcher by the Board for the Certification of Genealogists (1984-2015), and accredited by the International Commission for the Accreditation of Genealogists (1972-2015).

The British Virgin Islands, part of a volcanic archipelago in the Caribbean, is a British overseas territory comprising 4 main islands and many smaller ones. Tortola is home to the low-key capital, Road Town, and rainforested Sage Mountain National Park. On Virgin Gorda is The Baths, a labyrinth of beachside boulders.
The abolition of slavery occurred on 1 August 1834, and to this day it is celebrated by a three day public holiday on the first Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in August in the British Virgin Islands. The original emancipation proclamation hangs in the High Court. However, the abolition of slavery was not the single event that it is sometimes supposed to have been. Emancipation freed a total of 5,792 slaves in the Territory, but at the time of abolition, there were already a considerable number of free blacks in the Territory, possibly as many as 2,000.
In January 1808, HMS Cerberus seized the American schooner, the Nancy with a cargo of enslaved Senegalese Africans in the Territory's waters; between August 1814 and February 1815 a further four ships' slave cargoes were seized from the Venus, the Manuella, the Atrevido and the Candelaria and a further 1,318 liberated slaves were deposited on Tortola's shores (of whom just over 1,000 survived).
In 1819, a Portuguese slave ship, the Donna Paula, was wrecked upon the reef at Anegada. The ship's crew and 235 slaves were saved from the wreckage. Further Spanish ships, enroute to Puerto Rico were reported wrecked on the reef at Anegada in 1817 and 1824, and their cargos settled on Tortola.
Although many of these former slaves died due to the appalling conditions that they were kept in during the transatlantic crossing, a large number survived, and had children. - Courtesy of wikipedia.org

In honor of the 150 anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, we interview Rev. Dennis Dillon, publisher of the New York Christian Times, visionary and chief researcher behind New York Economic State of Black New York. The Naked Truth is the talk show targeting young, independent-thinking adults who don't mind their news on art, faith and culture delivered with an ascorbic twist. Hosted by Tiffani Knowles and Crystal Dundas.
In this special broadcast on Awusidae (Akwasidae), an Akan Ancestral Observance which occurs every sixth Awusida/Akwesida (Sunday), we discuss our upcoming HOODOO MAYN: Hoodoo Nation Festival - Akan Ancestral Religion of Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) in North America. This festival will occur on October 17th in Washington, DC.
This is the first Awusidae (Akwasidae) of our new year 13016 which began on the Atem/Atemet equinox, September 23rd. This first Ancestral observance also coincides with an Osranebere a Full, Red-Moon.
We will examine the nature of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion as carried in the blood-circles of Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) who were forced into the western hemisphere as a result of the Mmusuo Kese (Great Perversity/Enslavement era). Those of us who maintained our Ancestral Religious practice were empowered to overthrow the enslavement-system through warfare, thus forcing the whites into accepting abolition and emancipation.
Our annual HOODOO MAYN: Hoodoo Nation Festival will be an all day festival with vendors, workshops and presentations rooted in the restoration of our Authentic Ancestrally-inherited Religious traditions.

OUR REALIZATION OF THE EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION AMONGST OUR CURRENT LIFE SITUATIONS, CIRCUMSTANCES, AND CONDITIONS!
This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!
