    THE GOLDEN ERA, THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF CHRIST,part 15

    in Religion

    We have gone through the ERA by genealogy. We have heard the role that every person had to carry out. In existence every person whether good or bad exsisted and most importantly what satan tried did not work. That one world government which he wanted to establish will never become a reality. The head of gold on the image that King Nebuchadnezzar saw was meant for the first Adam, now the second Adam has won the honor to wear it. The Eagle that will reign in Jerusalem will that come in being the Antichrist will be defeated and CHRIST will reign, the King of all king and LORD over all lords. We will worship the King. Hallelujah!

    The New Essenes: Genealogy & Generativity Part I

    in Spirituality

    On your mark, set? Go! We have this great vehicle – the Path of XPR, equipped with SIX Wheels of Power. We checked the pressure of the TWIN Mission last episode, in its connection to Sentience. Now we are checking the Wheel of the TWIN QKode. That’s a major endeavor, as it secures two complimentary possibilities: to no longer be victim of our genealogy, and thus to be able to generate harmony. Join us for more...


    The New Essenes is a gathering of ordinary people practicing deep introspection as a way to solve everyday problems. Our inquiry is based on the idea that language is alive and that the Word is where our Power lives: since speech is an act, communication is not what is said and done, but the result of what is said and done. By joining in and coming back, we increasingly benefit from the distilled essence of an ultimate method of inquiry, based on Sacred Geometry and known as the Path of XPR.


    Our meetings last one-hour & are structured as follows:


    1.       The first 5 minutes: Welcoming, Checking In. taking a moment of silence.


    2.       The next 10 minutes:  Ritual readings.


    3.       The last 45 minutes: Introduction of a topic. Group Sharing & Inquiry, Summary / Ritual Closing.

    Property Rights and Wrongs with Judy G. Russell

    in History

     Property Rights and Wrongs: African-Americans at the Courthouse with The Legal Genealogist


    From being treated as property to having their property stolen by those who used the law against the freedmen, African Americans' experience at the courthouse had only one bright spot: it created records for the genealogist-descendants.


    A Certified Genealogist with a law degree, The Legal Genealogist Judy G. Russell examines the interplay between genealogy and the law. She is a lecturer, educator and writer who enjoys helping others understand a variety of issues, ranging from using DNA in family history to the effect the law had on our ancestors’ lives and the records they left behind.


    A graduate of George Washington University and Rutgers School of Law-Newark, Judy is a Colorado native with roots deep in the American south on her mother’s side and entirely in Germany on her father’s side. She's a member of the National Genealogical Society, the Association of Professional Genealogists, and, among others, the state genealogical societies of New Jersey, North Carolina, Virginia, Texas and Illinois. She has written for the National Genealogical Society Quarterly and the National Genealogical Society Magazine .

    A Journey To Discover My Ghanaian Roots with Carol Hector-Harris

    in History

    Many Americans of African descent have thought that connecting with their African kin was next to impossible, yet Carol Hector-Harris has done just that. Not only did she visit Ghana but she also met relatives. She is the fifth great-granddaughter of Africa-born Quock Martrick, who served in the Revolutionary War with George Washington in New York. She found Martrick's family, HER FAMILY, in Big Ada, Ghana. She also met members of her ethnic group, the Ga-Adangbe (the African lineage she discovered through DNA testing), which includes Sangmorkie Tetteh, who is with Carol in the photo.


    Carol Hector-Harris earned a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and a Master of Arts in Political Science from The Ohio State University. Currently she is working toward a Ph.D. at Ohio University’s Scripps College of Communication. An eleventh generation Bostonian, she lives in Columbus, Ohio with her husband, two sons, and eight grandchildren. Ms. Hector-Harris serves as the librarian for a Columbus Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
