The Dutch Slave Trade 1500-1850

It is interesting to see how one blog posting can cause other blog posting to be created, much like a comment in a conversation at a dinner party can cause a discussion about a seemingly unrelated topic. “I like the dress you are wearing; the color is so…” “Did you know that the first cloth dyes came from …” “Millions were spent in getting a specific color to region and they in turn caused new industries to be founded…”

I posted a bio from a 1882 newspaper and that gave me a few comments about the topic and caused me to do some research on the subject and found this book which I would have never known existed.

By Jose A Munoz

Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy. I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others. Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.
