About Our Family Research


My search began as soon as I could ask questions. I did not write the answers down nor did I remember what the answers were. It occurred to me that whatever information I could remember, I had better write it because my grandmothers were already deceased. My great-uncles and aunts were passing also. I started again in earnest when I went to White Castle for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. I began with my Father's,William "Jack" Dabney, side of the family. We didn't have a working tape recorder, so I wrote everything he told me in a notebook. We spent the whole day at the dining room table talking, discussing, and questioning. My mother was busy cooking and baking her very delicious pound cake. This took place before the other sisters arrived from Los Angeles (December, 1983). We continued the discussion the summer of 1984 in Los Angeles.

My mother, Alma Jackson Dabney, began talking to me about her side of the family when she visited us in Los Angeles in January,1984.

I have revisited these family members periodically since writing the information in a family book.
