Seventies Soulchild: Good afternoon all

3rdthawkins: hello Seventies

yatah: which one i have trust 1890 or 1895 ?

Seventies Soulchild: They did, so now I have the will of Baxter Smith, the lawsuit documents, the book where the family members are named, some of the census records and now this. Hopefully once all of this information gets analyzed I'll have a good picture of the family

alt: yatah, a 30.00 investment in a genealogy software package will save you a lot of trouble and you will always have your information a 'mouse click' away.

3rdthawkins: for who yatah?

yatah: josephine bec 130 1930 m said 1895

Seventies Soulchild: alt, I'm begging my cousin to do a book on the Smith family... begging...

yatah: 1910 said 1890

3rdthawkins: she's 20 in 1910 with one child under ten, I would say 1890

alt: hello Selma, how are ya?

yatah: make sense

Seventies Soulchild: Hi Selma

Selma: Good Wednesday afternoon folks

daviss: Hello Selma!!

Seventies Soulchild: Maybe I'm working on early admits today... something I don't normally do, its slow going...

3rdthawkins: so refresh my memory yatah, Luther Quiller was who?

alt: Seventies Soulchild, if you have the information on your computer you could give her a 'boost' by printing out a narrative report on what you have, that might get her started.

yatah: what age is jospehine has clarence quiller he born 1921 what yrs

Seventies Soulchild: I'm about to go out to Detroit lol

yatah: that josephine and edward's first child luther born about 1910 or 1909

alt: is that where your cousin is located? take your computer and a flash drive with you to leave for her LOL

Seventies Soulchild: She has pictures of many of the Smiths... they were given to her. So lucky. Oh I have a flash drive lol

3rdthawkins: ok, your father was?

alt: or if she has a computer askr her to send you a GEDCOM file.. or vice versa.

Seventies Soulchild: they have RootsMagic also alt and the tree is on ancestry one world. My cousin Philip sent me a copy of the tree. so I filled in where I could.

fierybug08: *virtual wave* to Seventies Soulchild alt daviss 3rdthawkins Selma yatah

yatah: hi

fierybug08: sounds good to me...i'll come meet ya!

alt: for photos, if she cares to share and is on Facebook have her post them there and you can do a copy & "save as".

Seventies Soulchild: So if anyone wants to do some research over the x-mas New Years break let me know. alt tried that too she's older and intimidated by technology.

3rdthawkins: my grandmother's niece's sister doesn't like departing with photos, she can't even get her to make a copy of the photo, she has to negotiate with her, crazy

alt: okay Seventies Soulchild, some of us 'older' folks are intimidated by the technology.

yatah: 3rd, rem i told you i found more children of edward and josephine after has luther ?

fierybug08: see that's why you demonstrate the coolness about technology

yatah: and died early ?

Seventies Soulchild: She did work with an archivist in Selma... but the lady has since died.

alt: I just have my toes in the water technology-wise LOL

Seventies Soulchild: lol yeah right!

3rdthawkins: not sure yatah

fierybug08: alt...i think it's good that you can appreciate. You know the basics. Email and genealogy software.

Seventies Soulchild: When I was discussing the items I found online with her, she knew right away who the people were alt. Seems like the black family had close connection with the white family. She kind of thinks that we are related to the Smiths.

yatah: ok

3rdthawkins: wanted to ask you about the Joseph Darby in PA pennitentary in 1930....have you discovered if that was him or not yatah?

alt: and it doesn't hurt that I was in IT, or Data Processing, as we used to call it for 30+ years fierybug08

Seventies Soulchild: I'm not convinced though.

yatah: wish free lol

alt: I'm not sure how Ancestry works with FTM fierybug08

3rdthawkins: well, Ancestry would have to get it for free yatah, and the places they get it from won't allow it they order the record and have to pay for it, charging you is the business of how they pay for the records

fierybug08: okay. i think i will have to just visit NARA in DC regularly. Better do it before it gets too cold

yatah: once get free right after that no free

3rdthawkins: yes yatah, unless you have different credit card thing is go to wal-mart or somewhere that sales money cards, activate it, put some money on them, and use the number to get free access to Ancestry

alt: but you can always get the 14 day free trial memberships to ancestry.. not sure how they check to see if you've used the free trial before.

3rdthawkins: same credit card number alt

fierybug08: oh, i always thought it was tied to the email address?

alt: right 3rdthawkins, I know they ask for a credit card # even on their free trial.

yatah: oh ok

3rdthawkins: I think I got a whole month free because I use one card, and then activated it where wal-mart sent me a permanent card (I was using the temporary one), and so I got an extra two weeks for the new number they didn't charge me, I thought they would, but I think they gave me free trial for both cards

yatah: i need find dead cer of josephine darby she died around 1949 i keep try look

3rdthawkins: well you all, gonna go, yatah, order that SSA for your grandfather, and so some research for his sibings, you may have to order records for them also, somebody record can/will give info that someone else's record doesn't so some-I mean Do Some research for her grandpa's siblings her-your
