I don't know what section this should be posted in...but this section got me typing.
Today, well...Yesterday...I read that Promiscious, Imbred and Drunkard....were words used to come up with the label "Piney"....I don't see a D in Piney ?!?.....But,.... We aren't supposed to be good Spellers neither...hmmm...thinking.....I didn't see Illiterate...but I know that my Punctuation sucks...

"The Kallikiak Family" and " The Vineland Training School for Feeble Minded Girls"

Am I the only one who never heard of this?
Thank you for any input that you may have...(Positive or Negative)...
I know who I am, and I like me.....But, I was surprised to see it in print.....

Deb,

I'll be presenting 7:00 PM Wednesday, August 15 at the Vineland Historical Society about Pinelands ethnic settlements, and speak to the Kallikak issue.

Above is a slide from the talk, with a diagram excerpted from the 1934 German translation Die Famalie Kallikak portraying Pineys as degenerates. The Nazi propaganda machine was citing our works in support of eugenics.

Very first hit in Google:

Quakers were NOT forbidden to drink alcoholic beverages which were commonly accepted in the 1600's when the Society was founded. They were however forbidden to drink to excess. A number of early Quakers are known to have owned Inns in which the sale of alcoholic beverages along with meals & rooms was a normal part of business. Quakers did however seem to be forbidden to engage in the manufacture of alcoholic beverages. A few instances are known in which members were disowned for operating stills. It was also considered contrary to discipline to offer alcohol as an inducement to others to perform some act. One case is known in which a Friend was cited for offering alcoholic beverages to his field hands, presumably to get more than a fair day's labor for a day's pay.
