3rdthawkins: what's up alt
alt: hello 3rdthawkins .. not much with me, how bout you?
Selma: Afternoon 3rd and alt
alt: Hello Selma.. how goes it with you today?
3rdthawkins: one of those days alt, everyday is something and everyday throws something at you. But I'm ok. hello Selma
Selma: Alt..I just read your DNA response to Linda...I am impressed with your understanding of the whole subject. Went right over my head.. LOL
alt: hang in there young fella,, it will get better.. I promise thank you Selma...
3rdthawkins: thx alt
alt: and BTW Selma, it may be that you are 'easily impressed' LOL
Selma: LOL...actually no I am not
alt: are you FaceBooking it now Selma?
Selma: Actually no..am I suppose to sign in..I think I am dropping out
alt: like the Mafia, once in you can't get out LOL
Selma: Actually you and AY have a way of explaining the technicalities of the DNA process so that it makes sense to the lay person.. Although I do think some folks have unreasonable expectations
alt: I find it (FB) interesting, been able to find photos and make connections to many of the 'younger generations' in my family lines. on DNA yeah, what it can do for you, genealogically, is greatly misunderstood
3rdthawkins: for some reason, I just haven't been able to connect with anyone on facebook, then again, I don't know anyone, especially on my dad's side
alt: and I'm seeing more and more 'older folks' involved with FB.. seems to be a way to communicate with grandkids and even great-grandkids. and some of the 'organizational' pages can be interesting
Selma: I think seniors are becoming great users of FB
alt: yep, our genealogy group AAGGMV just started a Facebook page this last weekend.
Selma: Is that something you initiated
alt: we already have 2 websites, I was against a FB page, but if it will make us a better organization and get folks involved I'll have to 'go with the flow' lol
Selma: I was gonna ask..how is that different from your website?
alt: on our member website we can upload more information in the types of files... pdf, wav, word docs, photos, etc. and place the information in categories within website sections the MyfFamily website is more of an 'archival' type of site if you will FB is like 'what's happening now'.
alt: and the website is 'searchable' within each section by category using keywords.
Selma: Seems like just one more thing to keep up with to me.....
alt: example, we have 10 years worth of quarterly newsletters on the MyFamily site, along with meeting minutes, bylaws, etc. hello daviss
daviss: hello, sorry I am late
Selma: Well, well, look whose late...hi daviss LOL
Selma: It ain't like this is a job.. LOL
daviss: hahahahaha I know
3rdthawkins: hello daviss
alt: it's not Selma LOL
daviss: hello alt and third seems like it
alt: naw, this is a labor of love.
3rdthawkins: it is if you older people wanna keep us younger people attentative lol
daviss: I was trying to figure out how to post a newspaper article but having trouble
alt: we do 3rdthawkins .. and especially make y'all appreciate 'older' things. is it an article that has a "share' and/or 'print me' thingee daviss?
daviss: I had to put it in Word but cant copy and post from there
alt: hmmmm, print it, then scan it and then upload the image daviss that's one way of doing it
daviss: The scanner is off at daughters house and I can't find the CD to put it online again.
alt: Oops is it a 'current' article?
daviss: brand new scanner and for some reason its unhooked no its an article from 1913 but it is very just like it is for today. Its on Voting I am going to send it to you alt its a good read
alt: okay daviss thanks
daviss: I was going to put on FB or on my blog but now I am frustrated
freeaainnc: hi all
3rdthawkins: hello free
alt: hello freeaainnc daviss, a scanner solution may be in buying an all-in-one printer... then it will always be 'hooked up'
daviss: you should have it now alt hello there free
3rdthawkins: what are you trying to upload it to daviss? I can try to help if you want
freeaainnc: hi vicky, alt, 3rd

alt: wonderful freeaainnc, you're fortunate in that regard
freeaainnc: http://freeaainnc.tribalpages.com/ on the display table this month is one of AYW's books! I didn't even know we had a book by her, but found it
3rdthawkins: I know she will be estatic
daviss: good job putting it up freeaainnc
freeaainnc: I've been pulling books for the table this past week and today looking for articles in our journals on the topic and finishing up the sign thanks vicky been using books here during my lunches to update notes for individuals and also added a few
daviss: I wish I were there to see your display
alt: gotcha in my favorites now freeaainnc, gonna keep up with ya too LOL
freeaainnc: I'm thinking about starting to take pictures of them just for my own memory how they were displayed so the next year I'll have the idea to do it again, but with different books lol alt, ok
daviss: What tribes are you focusing on free that are specific to NC
alt: greta idea on the photos of previous display free
daviss: yep, sure is alt
freeaainnc: Well, Cherokee of course, but since everyone associates the Cherokee with NC, trying to look for info on lesser known tribes like the Tuscarora, Tutelo, Lumbee, Saponi and Sappony, etc.
alt: it will also 'document' your talents in making up displays... a good feature for future use on your resume
freeaainnc: That's true alt and thanks
daviss: I have not heard of the first two but have the Lumbee and Saponi
alt: daviss, you do have Richard Haithcock's books on your self's, right?
freeaainnc: see, that is why I want to work on the lesser known. Lumbee and Saponi are tribes there are still here, but not the others
alt: Oops, the was for freeaainnc
freeaainnc: what book is that?
daviss: lol thought so alt
alt: He has several works on the Occanechie, Tutelo, Saponi & Catawba's freeaainnc
freeaainnc: I can only use books that are in the library
alt: I know freeaainnc, thought you might have been familiar with Haithcock.
freeaainnc: I don't think so, I don't recognize the name. will look in the catalog
Selma: You have Heinnegs book on the table..any number of the families in his book claim Indian ancestry
alt: Hi MOM

alt: nope, not with Mamma, evn to' she's been gone since 1961 she would still whip my butt for fooling around with her LOL
freeaainnc: oh wait, that might be the missing one!
alt: thoguth you would have Haithcock freeaainnc

freeaainnc: I don't know selma, let me go look and keep y'alls fingers crossed it is not missing
daviss: hurry and look free cause I use those fingers for typing :?
alt: I saw a post on AfriGeneas Western Forum today that was 'enlightening' on Native American & Black relations.
freeaainnc: *sigh* yeah, that is the missing one! lol vicky!
alt: haithcock or Heinegg?
daviss: someone checked it out or took it free?
Selma: So sorry free...I suspect that is a problem in many libraries...sticky fingers
daviss: thats so sad
freeaainnc: thing is though that we have tattle tape here so I'm surprised it is missing
daviss: I did read an article last week where someone sent in a library book after 35 yrs
freeaainnc: we have very few missing books here in the genealogy section because of that
alt: oh my, that is a great book,, bout 700 pages in the latest volume .. Selma his work somewhat parallels Heineigs work only it is on NA's
daviss: they could not pay the fine but sent a nice donation lol
Selma: I will have to look for it alt...

freeaainnc: drat! not there either!
daviss: yeah Selma ! lol what is the name of the book by haithcock
Selma: Folks gotta run....got an appointment..have a great day
freeaainnc: alt, the one we have is from 1995
alt: Me too Selma, I 'borrowed' a course book when I was in college, too poor to buy the book so I checked it out from the Library.. still have it from 1954 LOL that is a 'good' edition freeaainnc
freeaainnc: '54??? wow alt! LOL

alt: Loren Katz?
freeaainnc: don't recognize name we don't have a lot of NA books here and most are on the Cherokee
alt: these are more recent writers on the NA/AA 'confluences'. Art Burton is recognized quite a bit here on AfriGeneas.
daviss: whoa I have Katz. Bought a first edition at the book fair cost me only 15.00
freeaainnc: we don't have any books on Art Burton
daviss: The one I have by Katz is The Black West

freeaainnc: we do not have Loren Katz either I don't know where Pembroke is (except for "east") LOL We aren't *right* by it, but then again, it only takes 2 hours driving time to get to the coast
daviss: eventually I will get The Black Indians by katz
freeaainnc: alt, you know these sounds like great books that we don't have here (budget, we can't buy anything new at all for the past 2 years or so), but we're happy to take gift donations hehe
