"Say My Name"

Say My Name is dedicated to African American families with Trinity County roots.  Included are family group sheets, biographies, photos, obituaries and research notes.  It is a work in progress, and I hope to add more soon.  Please contact me at if you wish to list your African American family listed on this site, or if you have any information you'd like to share about your Trinity County Family. 

 hear you callin' my name Child, I haven't heard my name in 100 years
You're so far away Child, let me light the lamp so I can find my way
Keep callin' my name Child, I'll come your way
I see your sweet face Child, and I know you are dear
Say my name again Child, and I'll be near
You called my name Child, I am not dead
You called my name Child, Bless Your Heart
Since you called my name Child, we shall never part
Walk the ground where I once tread, I'll show you the way
Light the lamp in my heart Child and I'll never go away
For it is in your heart I will always stay
