I am thankful to God for another year of life and the countless blessings that has been bestowed upon me.

Since I live in a non HBCU environment but love college football I may check out the Yale vs Army game to be played in Yale Bowl. Yale Bowl is celebrating 100 years this year.(Built in 1914). Army suppose to march aprox.1-2000 cadets into the bowl that should be a sight to see. In addition Yale tailgaiting is quite extravagant....should be a nice day at the bowl...

On the maternal side of my family we were capable of tracing my great-great grandfather arrival to the United States on a slave ship arriving in Virginia some time around 1849. He was given the first name Mose and last name Peoples after the plantation owner. He was sold from Virginia to Georgia and from Georgia to Alabama. He married a Creek Indian and had five off-springs one being my great grandmother.
The research was done mostly by tracing census records and investigating oral history pass down from generation to generation.
I know this is an old topic but still remain interesting to many. If you would like to share your family discoveries please feel free.
