    Records of Post-Civil War Federal Agencies at NARA - Reginald Washington

    in History

    The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is the official repository of the permanently valuable records of the U.S. Government.  NARA's vast holdings document the lives and experiences of persons who interacted with the Federal Government.  The records created by post-Civil War Federal Agencies are perhaps some of the most important records available for the study of black family life and genealogy.  This discussion will focus on NARA's Reference Information Paper 108.


    This reference information paper describes three post-Civil War Federal agencies' records: the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands; the Freedman's Savings and Trust Company; and the Commissioners of Claims. Case examples will be shared to illustrate the value of researching these important records.


    Reginald Washington is a retired archivist/ genealogy specialist with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). He lectures frequently on records and research procedures at the National Archives, and has served as the African-American Genealogy Subject Area Specialist at NARA. He has spoken at conferences of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society, National Genealogical Society, Federation of Genealogical Societies, National Institute on Genealogical Research, and numerous local genealogical societies and clubs.

    The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 & Fractional Reserve Banking

    in Education

    The Federal Reserve Act (enacted December 23, 1913 signed into law by president Woodrow Wilson) was purportedly designed to aid in:


    1.    Conducting the nation’s monetary policy by influencing monetary and credit conditions in the economy in pursuit of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates.
    2.    Supervising and regulating banking institutions to ensure the safety and soundness of the nation’s banking and financial system, and protect the credit rights of consumers.
    3.    Maintaining stability of the financial system and containing systemic risk that may arise in financial markets.
    4.    Providing financial services to depository institutions, the U.S. government, and foreign official institutions, including playing a major role in operating the nation’s payments system.


    The Origins of Fractional Reserve Banking


    In XVIth century England people who had gold would deposit it with goldsmiths for safekeeping. In exchange they got a signed receipt guaranteeing that they could retrieve it. The value assigned to that note backed by the gold in the goldsmith’s vault made it possible to use it for payment.

    That means if A deposited £10 worth of gold and had in his possession a receipt he could settle his debt with it. That receipt, actually a promissory note, became money. The person who took it in payment could either use it as is, or at some later point retrieve the gold in the goldsmith’s keeping.

    At the same time B borrows £10 worth of gold from the goldsmith but receives a promissory note. He settles his debt to C with that note. Now there are two notes in circulation for one amount of gold. The goldsmith issues further notes, knowing that all claims would not have to be honored at the same time.

    Live Chat: How to register a Business .How to trade Mark Your Product

    in Music

    Go to your county court house and register the business in your name.
    It will look like this.Mary Jane, DBA, Discount Fashions.


    DBA= Doing Business As.


    Doing this is no different than the way you are operating at present, regarding income taxes.All profits are considered personal income.
    You will purchase a license, renewable each year and you may obtain a SalesTax certificate. Any sales tax collected will be sent to the state to which you ship merchandise, if that state requires tax on internet purchases.
    You can see that you'll have to know the tax rate for any state that requires this.


    With a sales tax certificate, you can purchase wholesale without paying sales tax.OR, you may choose to pay sales tax at the wholesale level, and have no tax to pay to states, with no tax certificate. You may already be doing this. It is legal to do this and add, charge sales tax on your retail price, if in your own state. Most states do not require tax on out of state shipments. (This all depends on how you are operating)


    Laws on internet sales may change at any time, so you need to keep informed.
    You will have to keep records and submit operating statements in order to substantiate your earnings for income tax purposes.Open a bank account in the business name, (CRS Radio). Pay all purchases, expenses and any draws that you take from that account.Don't intermingle personal money with the business.

    DOJ No Federal charges of against George Zim

    in Politics

    The Justice Department announced today that the independent federal investigation found insufficient evidence to pursue federal criminal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman for the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida.  Prosecutors from the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, officials from the FBI, and the Justice Department’s Community Relations Service met today with Martin’s family and their representatives to inform them of the findings of the investigation and the decision.


    The Chicago police department operates an off-the-books interrogation compound, rendering Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside what lawyers say is the domestic equivalent of a CIA black site.


    The facility, a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s west side known as Homan Square, has long been the scene of secretive work by special police units.
