AYWalton: Good afternoon, all.

daviss: what!!! r U kidding me

Selma: Hey the STAR is in the room Hi STAR

AYWalton: Howdy alt, daviss, Ms. Selma.

vkn: There she is AYWebinar !!!!!!!!!!!

daviss: hello AY!!

AYWalton: Greetings, VKN!!!!!!!!!!!! lol You guys are too much!

vkn: lol

daviss: lol

AYWalton: I hope that means that yall liked it!

vkn: {{{{{{{{{ HUGS a plenty }}}}}}}}}}}

daviss: we sure did AY!

AYWalton: thanks so much!! it was much easier than I thought from a technical end--since Geoff from Legacy handled all of that.

vkn: AYW did us all proud

AYWalton: I knew I could not go and shame the family, so I had to "represent".

vkn: lol

Selma: and represent you

AYWalton: didn't want yall mad at me, so I was motivated to be what the old folks used to say, "a credit to da race" :)

vkn: not even a slip was showing lol

daviss: hehehehehehehe

Selma: Thanks for starting off by telling folks to "sit down with a piece of paper"..

AYWalton: I had it hiked up with rubber bands, underneath. lol

alt: Hello AYWalton.. Great job!!!!!!!

AYWalton: howdy alt!

vkn: lol lol lol

AYWalton: thank you, and glad you got to hear it, as well.

Selma: Yes, yes, I know all about the Genealogy programs, but I swear just sitting down with a pencil and a pedigree chart would help folks immensely to get the basics in some time frame

vkn: AYW even highlighted her "fren" wid da brokem ankle lol lol

AYWalton: lol

daviss: lol

AYWalton: but did not "out" her completely!

vkn: lol

alt: as daviss said... "you worked it" it was obivious that it was a well thought out & put together piece of work.

Selma: What you said about your other sources and VA RG105 applies..just cause it says OKlamhoma don't mean it is only OK info Use your imagination

vkn: 'deed she worked it

AYWalton: I am sure everyone had images in their head of this poor soul with her foot hiked up, diligently pouring through F Bureau records just for the sake of history, overcoming pain and discomfort for the cause.

Selma: LOL..

AYWalton: thank you all so much.

Selma: That in fact was the actual image the first 2 weeks.. LOL

vkn: ...for the cause

daviss: oops

alt: AYWalton, that was my vision of Selma

Selma: I was thrilled to hear that Family Search has done NC RG 105..can't wait to tell Barnetta

AYWalton: oops.

daviss: wb

AYWalton: my goal was too get folks to think outside of the confinements of their own geographic territory. Just because it says Virginia does not mean it was EXCLUSIVELY Virginia.

vkn: I also liked that you pronounced the contents of RG105 as haveing something for everybody

AYWalton: I think only a tiny fraction of folks have ever truly looked at FB records.

alt: you succeeded..... look for records, not just black records, cause we are in all types of record sets.... a valuable message.

vkn: they will now

daviss: heyy bearnut2

AYWalton: and I hope that others also realized if they have white ancestry, that they might have folks in FB records as well.

vkn: hey bearnut won the jackpot

Selma: Afternoon bearnut2

alt: hello BIg Winner!!!!!

AYWalton: Hello there, bearnut2 congrats on winning the door prize!

Selma: Just about all of the Bureau officials were white Yes congrats bearnut

AYWalton: that would make an interesting article--Whites in the Freedman'

daviss: How many participants AYWalton were online?

Selma: Plus the white folks are in there trying to get their land back..

AYWalton: Whites in the Freedman's Bureau

Selma: Writing to the Bureau for all kinds of stuff.. Destititue white folks getting rations..

AYWalton: When I opened my window after turning it over to Geoff, there were 140 folks in the room.

Selma: All kinds of stuff

bearnut2: Hey everybody!

AYWalton: and whites pledging oaths of allegiance to get back into the US as citizens.

Selma: I have tried to tell some of mywhite researcher friends ove the years..but they don't always get it

bearnut2: Yeah, i was very excited to win that prize! I was just about to purchase the cd! lol

AYWalton: I think that might be a good presentation down the line.

Selma: I will send you some examples AY...

AYWalton: I heard from Geoff and he has asked me if I want to give any more, to send him a list of topics. oh yes, Selma, please do.

alt: I hope you-know-who was one of them AYWalton ... your presentation should have been an eye-opener to him on how little he actaully knows about AA genealogy & research

bearnut2: oohAYWalton that does sound like a good presentation

vkn: yes and grabbing back their no longer abandoned lands

AYWalton: that is precisely what was happening, vkn!

Selma: There is a whole census of the White and colored Census of Accomoc County 1864

AYWalton: oh wow!!! in the FB records, Selma??? that is a MAJOR find!!

bearnut2: wow Selma!

AYWalton: how many pages?

AYWalton: I kind of remember that name from a long time ago.

daviss: vkn what about that Quarles post, I hope they got something from it

alt: just goes to show there is so much true & factual 'good stuff', that we don't need to fictionalize or embellish our family histories.

AYWalton: vkn, I saw that offer to submit data--was this a result of the webinar?

Selma: Gotta find it later..will post on the Reconstruction and Surnames Forum

vkn: Not sure AYW I am sure we can credit mail over the next several days to webinar. Did have one phone call specofoc to having been at webinar
