daviss: are you going to send your data to him alt?
alt: I haven't sent my raw data from FTDNA to him as yet.... no particular reason other than I keep forgetting to do it.
vkn: Great Freedmen news on your forum AYW and great news from Gina on Adoptions
AYWalton: don't see much there, alt, except some kind of calculator that makes little sense.

vkn: The confederate myth thing continues alt. The poster expresses appreciation to you
AYWalton: just allowing them to vote---and agreement does not mean that they stay citizens.

alt: the poster "PF" has posted some good stuff lately, I just wish he would say a littl more about his postings so we might know the 'gist' of what he has posted about.
Seventies Soulchild: PF is the one who is posting links right
daviss: I agree alt
alt: right Seventies Soulchild, not sure whathis 'mythdology' is for posting just the link... driving hits to those sites maybe????
AYWalton: Oh yes, Tiya---that is amazing, and quite an accomplishment for sure.

veeinga: Samkofa is not being updated
AYWalton: I met Tiya 11 years ago at the conference she organized at Dartmouth. And now she is a MacArthur Fellow! Amazing, indeed.
Seventies Soulchild: I think that the owner depends on members to do the updating.
veeinga: WOW MacArthur huh? Incredible for her
alt: is she the young lady with the Navajho (sp) background AYWalton?
AYWalton: no you are thinking about Radmilla Cody. Tiya is black, and teaches at the University of Michigan.
