Hello ... My name is Shirley A. Scott. I'm researching my family history that may have orignated in Lake Providence, Louisiana. They are Glen & Nettie Ervin and Mary & Thomas Baldwin. The Baldwin's are listed on the 1930 census next to King Atlas, Jr., etc. Hoping you can share some pointers ... really appreciate your site. Great Contribution to the A/A Research Effort.
