Paul Cuffee (1759 - 1817) was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts of an African father and an Indian mother. He became an important African American ship captain, and wealthy owner of whaling ships as well as abolitionist and educator.  Recognizing that both blacks and Indians received unequal public education, he bought a farm in 1797 to house a school for free children of color. He was a Quaker, and one of the first to advocate emigration as a solution to the problems of racial injustice in America. In 1811, he traveled to Sierra Leone, in West Africa, and set up the Friendly Society of Sierra Leone to encourage colonization; furthermore, he personally spent his wealth to transport blacks back to Africa. He died before he could lead another expedition for settlement to West Africa.

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quickbase often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quickbase finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quickbase needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:

  • If you want to create three separate Acme records (Acme-New York, Acme-Dallas and Acme-Portland) click the Conform link at the top of the column.
  • If the dissimilar entries are mistakes (say Acme only has one office in New York and the other locations are data-entry errors) go back into your table and correct the inconsistencies—in this case, changing all locations to New York. Then try the conversion again.
