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).

This episode is being rebroadcast from Michele’s original radio show, “Your Life After Trauma.”
Ignoring a head injury can be fatal. Death can be prevented if the injury is attended to such as in the cases of Natasha Richardson and Oxyclean spokesman, Billy Mays. In addition to the general population, veterans frequently suffer traumatic head injuries, which result in complications. It’s up to us to recognize the importance of managing a head trauma and knowing what to do in case something happens.
This show is dedicated to providing information surrounding what happens during a head trauma and information that can help survivors know what to do in order to regain optimal health. Dr. David Petruska, board certified neurosurgeon at St. Mary’s Medical Center and Fellow of the American College of Surgeons joined Michele to discuss ‘Trauma & Head Injuries’ from a medical perspective.

Arlinya asks: How do you focus your research for stories: Do you layout what you need for plot and hit each high point or do you start with one thing, research everything you can upfront and re-enter research stage later if needed?
Writing Hitsuzen asks: When you are researching or world-building for a story, how do you determine when you have enough to start writing? I know that there is always going to be something that needs to be looked up or researched in the middle, but how do you know when you’ve got the basics that you need to start? Do you use a list? Is it part of your plotting process or separate? How much if it is character based? And how do you keep from going overboard and world-building into infinity?

Experiencer's Network - MARS and the Mars Anomaly Research Society, Friday, Oct 2, 2015 on www.blogtalkradio.com/aquarianradio on the Anomaly Network with with hosts Janet Kira Lessin & co-host Rev. John Polk. Details and special guest Lewis Michael Rhinehart.
Anomaly hunting has become quite the past time when it comes to the planet MARS we talk to members of the Mars Anomaly Research Society about important findings this year and also the upcoming conference in Mobile AL, October 24th. The speaker at the conference will be Andrew Basiago, Lewis Michael Rhinehart and others TBA
Lewis Michael Rhinehart - Lewis retired in 2010 from a company he owned called Sound Hearing Solutions. He was a hearing aid specialist and spent 18 years as a H.A.S., owning his company since 2004. His D.O.B. is 5/22/51. Since his mid-twenties, Lewis has been very interested in UFO’s and aliens, etc.. In essence, he became a Ufologist reading all he could on the subject.
At the same time, Lewis became very interested in all things spiritual with a main focus on NDE’S. September 11, 2001 or 911 was the catapult for his true awakening as it was for so many others. Rhinehart knew instantly when he saw a tower fall that something was not right. This was the beginning of his research into the truth in all things.
Regarding Lewis’s work with Andrew D. Basiago, he was researching child prodigies when he was prompted by YouTube to view, “Borskika, the Boy from Mars,” an interview by Project Camelot. He was then prompted by Andrew D. Basiago’s paper, “The Discovery of Life on Mars,” published on 12/12/08. Lewis could not find the paper and on 01/08/09 he contacted Andy who responded the same day directing him to the paper....
