The following websites may be accessed using the links below. Eventually I will move them to this blog as time permits.
Great Galveston Storm
This interesting website tells the story of the Great Galveston Huricane which struck Galveston Island in September 1900 and killed between 5,000 and 10,000 people. This storm still remains the largest death toll occuring in a natural disaster in United States History. The website tells the story of what went on in Galveston before, during and after the Storm. There is also a list of approximately 5,000 names of those who died in the Storm
The Barnet/Barnett/Barnette DNA Surname Project
This exciting new project is a scientific genealogical study of the Y-Chromosomes of Barnetts of all spellings from all over the World.
The Finch DNA Surname Project
This exciting new project is a scientific genealogical study of the Y-Chromosomes of Finches throughout the world
The Free People of Color of Texas Project
Mic Barnette’s Free People of Color Project is an interesting study of the Free People of Color who lived in the Republic of Texas and the State of Texas prior to the Civil War. It also includes people born in Texas and living in a state or country outside Texas prior to the Civil War.
This study will likely result in a publication. For more information visit the website at:
