alt: I see a 'new' movie is coming out on the Tuskegee Airmen "RedTails" watch folks jump on it about it's historical accuracy, forgetting it is a movie and not a 'documentary". hello vkn, how you be's?
3rdthawkins: you're right alt, we hve to remember it's BASED on a true story, and not a total word-for-word true story..........helo vkn
Selma: Hi vkn
vkn: Howdy 3rd alt Amos Selma Being good
Selma: I agree with you alt..but for some folks, if they see it on the big screen it must all be true
AYWalton: Good afternoon, all. hi 3rd greetings malt, AmosNY, Ms. Selma!y
Selma: Hi AY
alt: yep, that's what happened with "Glory" & The Tuskegee Airmen" & "Malcom X .. they were thrown out like the baby in the bath water because of "liberties" taken in adapting the story to a movie. these are movies na dnot documentaries LOL and not
3rdthawkins: hello AY i don't like it myself alt, but they do make the point it is based on true events my pet peeve is when they switch things around it was person A who did something not person B, but hollywood switches the events around sometimes you can understand it, but I wish they would keep it as it was
alt: AYWalton, have you seen the completed program schedule for the NBGS in Ft. Wayne? .... speakers, topics & time slots
AYWalton: have not seen the final program. I shall take a look.
vkn: ayw alt do you use google analytics if so how do you like the results it produces
AYWalton: I have never used it, vkn. Not even sure what that is.
alt: no, I don't use google analytics vkn... sorry can't help you with that one.
vkn: will send you an email ayw
alt: has anyone signed on with google+ ??
vkn: not i
AYWalton: ok thanks, vkn. I have signed up for google+
Selma: What does google + do that the regular one doesn't
alt: me neither vkn, don't know if I need another 'hoop to jump through'
vkn: plus is getting good reviews
3rdthawkins: wb Seventies
AYWalton: it is not a search engine, Selma.
alt: another 'social networking' thing Selma
AYWalton: It is a community kind of like facebook or twitter.
Selma: Oh..jeez..well count me out
AYWalton: I only have genealogists in the circle.
Seventies Soulchild: thanks 3rd I see that everyone likes Google + with the exception that they deleted several accounts of people who didn't use their real names.
AYWalton: You can put your contacts in separate circles your family circle does not have to see your genealogy posts, unless they are in that circle as well.
vkn: howdy seventies
3rdthawkins: too much keeping up with the Joneses for me too AY alt and Selma
AYWalton: keeping up with the Jones is imitating for status. For some, google+ is a method of managing contacts. I am not aware of folks trying to keep up for any status among the contacts that I have in my genealogy circle.
3rdthawkins: ok, sounds good to mee
AYWalton: Many of whom are regulars right here. Selma how is the foot?
Selma: Hopping.. LOL
alt: hard cast this week Selma?
Selma: Have doctors appointment tomorrow..will find out
alt: good luck & best wishes Selma
vkn: Outstanding postings to Reconstruction, Selma. rich details
Selma: Thank you
AYWalton: keeping it elevated? (except when hopping?)
Selma: Yes AY..elevated..my grand daughter is enjoying working the controls of the bed.. LOL I ordered some MD and another states records 2 rolls at FHC but don't know if I can get there before they send it back
alt: can you get them to extend on the loan?
Selma: I wanted to go back and finish the 1865 AA census roll but not sure if I can get that either What did I send you the image of..was it Alabama Maybe I will call them and check alt
alt: David's response on the procedure used by GA for the legalization of slave partnerships following the CW was very interesting,,,, sort of a 'blanket' acknowledment.
Selma: Yes, Barnetta gave the laws that applied to the different states in the intro to her book
alt: and how the wording 'absolved' any paternity by white men of slave children.
vkn: Alabama also issued a blanket
alt: guess I'd better re-read the intro Selma and stop doing just lookups LOL
Seventies Soulchild: Interesting convo
vkn: Florida charged $2 to issue a cert. Most were done in Dec 1866 for FL
Selma: I am trying to determine if any of the states asked for a census of the black population like VA did..the only other one that I have seen is the one in Alabama for that one county
Seventies Soulchild: what county Selma?
Selma: Was it Alabama vkn.. Let me check seventies
vkn: Madison Limestone yes Selma and included some in TN
Seventies Soulchild: Madison seems to have a lot of info on its black population. But at one time Huntsville was the capital city of AL
vkn: It was the first Capitol seventies
Selma: Yes,thats what it is Huntsville
Seventies Soulchild: ok
AYWalton: There was the 1866 census for the entire state of Alabama. I have used it for Limestone County, in northern AL.
Selma: What I find interesting is that the names of slave owners are included as a column..which is extremely helpful but why..
AYWalton: found some of my Giles County TN folks who crossed the line for a brief time.
Selma: but why is it necessary..
vkn: It is very helpful
Seventies Soulchild: ok I found that with some Lanier's as well AYWalton.
Selma: were they still debating whether they would reimburse these folks for their lost property
AYWalton: oh Selma, don't forget to send me the link about the man who wanted to shoot all of those Negroes walking about. The one who asked permission.
alt: that sounds like a good reason Selma ... reimbursement
Selma: Ok.. Angela..after my nap.. LOL
vkn: AYW LOTS of USCT were discharged in Madison/Huntsville in fact there remains a village there today with the original row type houses
AYWalton: now that is interesting! I wonder if there was a camp--contraband camp in that area. that is interesting!
vkn: Then there are the two colleges
Selma: On that roll with the Census for Huntsville Alabama..were lists of bounty claims by USCT
alt: seems as if the US Gov't went out of the way to make things right for the confederacy from a monetary point of view after the CW.
Seventies Soulchild: oops look at the time. See y'all later.
vkn: It is a current tourist attraction
Selma: I think that reimbursement question is a good one for David Patterson or Eric Foner, I have been thinking of emailing Foner He is still alive isn't he
AYWalton: well I had better run, folks. Have a great day!
alt: are the Southern Claims Commission records all post CW?
vkn: I think so alt
Selma: Well folks time for me to go.. Have a great day
alt: okay Hopalong
vkn: okies take all care me too
