daviss: I am patting my foot mabe I need to go to "How to write an email " class
alt: daviss, are you in contact with an individual, or a Masonic Lodge?
3rdthawkins: I hate the "We'll call back when we get find the info/records" and they never call back you and I both daviss. And the, How to make an Inquery on the Phone
daviss: The lodge plus the National Lodge in Texas
alt: good luck daviss
jhonora: Generally each state has a Lodge of Research

AmosNY: Hi VKN!
vkn: alt selma daviss amos di jhonora rcs 3rd
daviss: Know any Springers vkn
daviss: or Sconiers
daviss: that is an odd name night night all.. daughter has to take a test
alt: slow night.. any 'hot button' items to discuss?
3rdthawkins: umm, let me see
alt: anyone have any how-to tips?
3rdthawkins: don't know, but I am just about finish with all my lines going back to 1870, except Johnson and not finding anything on LUM wb
AmosNY: I don't have any. Genealogy is not my top priority right now. Real estate investing is.
alt: 3rdthawkins, when you say ALL my lines.. how many are you talking about?
3rdthawkins: um, let me see, you're right alt
jhonora: Amos, I believe Gerald O'Hara said to Scarlett: Land is the only thing that matters ... the only thing that lasts
alt: good Eurpoean concept, huh jhonora?
jhonora: Yes, it is alt.
AmosNY: Jhonora, that is correct. That's why when you evaluate real estate land is always 20% of the value.
alt: my land ain't your land LOL LOL
3rdthawkins: actually it's only 4 lines, 2 or 3 lines I don't have alt
alt: there is a discussion ...property vs land ....
3rdthawkins: if you own property, do you own land? and what part of the land do you own, and how much of the land is your property? I think I asked that right
jhonora: I would think if you own property you own land, there is "improved land" versus "unimproved land," and then land with structures.
AmosNY: In some states with mineral rights you might have a situation where someone might have mineral rights to your land.
Selma: Time for me to go folks...have a great evening
3rdthawkins: hello ryan
AmosNY: Hi Ryan!
ryan: Hi all, long time no visit to Sat Night (Happy new year too)
3rdthawkins: yeah, been a while
vkn: di do I have your phone number
jhonora: It is amazing the advances made by families with history antebellum literacy versus postbellum literacy. When freedom came they were more prepared to gain land, positions, and of course further education.
di: not sure. i can give it to u
3rdthawkins: you know, I was thinking earlier I sure would like to do more research on my great grandmother Ella Sanders Hawkins, who was a school teacher, just not sure how. Don't know what she taught in, but heard she taught in Saint Stephens, where she met my great grandfather
jhonora: Saint Stephens, Alabama??
3rdthawkins: don't know what **school** she taught in oops, Saint Stephen, South Carolina
di: start with time frams and all.
vkn: See yall 2morry good peeps
jhonora: Maybe you could check to see if the county school records exist, whether she is mention in county commission minutes, or local papers.
3rdthawkins: well in 1920 she was listed as school teacher, she was 23 although census says 18 did the first part of that jhonora, nothing came up
AmosNY: Niters all!
jhonora: They may have run an article about the local schools around graduation time, May or June.
3rdthawkins: Berkeley is difficult to search in, I contacted the library, I have to actually go there to get anything done there or have someone else visit Berkeley County
ryan: well yall, I know I'm kinda late, will get here earlier next time.. for now, gotta run off. later
jhonora: That's a problem in many counties. It would be good business for locals with the know-how in their county courthouse.
3rdthawkins: that's one of those places you have to close your eyes and hope for the best, hope some record pops online or something funny thing, I tried emailing their county probate judge to inquery about getting a marriage license for my great grandparents, and the email bounced back
di: have you contacted the gene societies around there. and look up people usually are already familiar with the info.
3rdthawkins: they charge you di, and I don't have any more money
di: gene society contact list too..
3rdthawkins: I can't even find a phone number for them will have to try them, I mailed them once about another research I am doing on Payson, but no reply will try and call
jhonora: The SC State Archives has copies of most county microfilm
3rdthawkins: will try them again jhonora, I contacted before about Rosenwald schools, thinking and wondering if she taught in one of them, but that was a dead end, will see if maybe she taught in a public school
di: u may hacve this already http://tinyurl.com/6dumfc
3rdthawkins: will have to keep it and use it di, thx wish I could do more traveling and find someone to travel with
jhonora: We all wish we could travel more!

Ingrid_Doweary: Good nite 3rd and Di.
3rdthawkins: not sure of school's name, not sure where she taught, had to be between 1918? and 1940 (at least), her name was Ella Ann Hawkins (nee Sanders)
di: ok i was just looking at some records seeing what was available. just was going to not if i saw something that stood out.
di: http://www.nbccongress.org/ have you seen this or been on the site
3rdthawkins: hmmm, no I have not
di: a search connected me to it but the document relating to st james comes with a dead link. something must have been on there at one time. hey another stone in the bucket they do not even have a parrish listed for sc. what a shame! i know the parish is/ was all black you said you contacted the charleston diocese. what about beaufort, do they have one. i am reading something that says st james was under the beaufort parrish
3rdthawkins: no I didn't, but there were two St James'
di: it was reffered to as the catholic crossroads (negro Mission) The Catholic church in the United States of America: undertaken to celebrate the golden jubilee of His Holiness, Pope Pius X, Volume 3 (Google eBook) page 133 http://tinyurl.com/4u227sn
3rdthawkins: ok di, see my grandather went to ICS, but not sure if his mother taught there grandather-means grandfather
3rdthawkins: I had contacted the Diocese before, almost two years ago inquiring about if my grandfather's mother taught there, but they apparently could not find anything. It was one of those things again, they would call back if they found something, but nothing.........................Immaculate Conception School
di: charleston or berkley
di: years '
3rdthawkins: again di, it would be between 1918 and at least 1940
di: sorry forgot i had asked
3rdthawkins: doesn't seem to be any Catholic Schools in Berkeley County according to this book on google wonder if she taught in a regular public school, something like an all-black school
di: i got caught up in looking at differnt links
