Daviss: bearnut2 what is your project?

veenGA: YEAH fierybug08 music to ears lol

fierybug08: I am serious.

bearnut2: Daviss I hadn't heard of the georgia slave importation lists until I read about it in the Afrigeneas handout you guys had in Ft Wayne...

alt: bearnut2, thanks for your response on the RF questions.

fierybug08: where is Meharry?

veenGA: Nashville

bearnut2: so I ordered the roll for Camden County to transcribe you're welcome cousin alt

Daviss: learn something new everyday bearnut and what a great idea

veenGA: WOW will you share via AfriGeneas bearnut2 and do you need others to assist you

bearnut2: veenGA will do!

veenGA: Wunnerful wunnerful

bearnut2: I'd love any assistance I can get! I'll check to see what other counties are available on film and post to the board in case anyone wants to order them.

alt: could be something like this already exits for any given HBCU?????

Daviss: so far meharry is the only one I have seen online alt but worth looking again

bearnut2: I know one guy started a project on Afrigeneas and has transcribed one county but the GA Archives no longer allows purchase of the microfilm rolls.

veenGA: I have a bro in law Meharry class 1928 who left his bod to the school lab 1974 Benjamin T Wood SC and other relatives who are graduates so would see that as the test location alt. I have already planted the idea must of course have a well developed "business" plan

bearnut2: who was the "welcome" for?

AYWalton: Good afternoon, all.

bearnut2: ahh hey AYWalton!

Daviss: hello AYWalton!!

veenGA: Howdy AYW

alt: Hello AYWalton. how ya doing?

AYWalton: Howdy,alt, bearnut2, Daviss, fierybug08, veenGA

bearnut2: it took a while after your welcome for you to appear! lol

AYWalton: doing fine and you, alt?

fierybug08: Hi AYWalton

veenGA: bearnut2 AYW come in through the lobby comes

bearnut2: ahhh thanks veenGA

alt: of course veenGA .. a well developed plan would be essential to a project of this size. and a well developed "conceptual" plan would be critical

veenGA: Indeed

bearnut2: so...anybody get any "interesting" new cousins lately?

veenGA: indeed and absolutely

Daviss: lol bearnut2 I gained 3 cousins yesterday

bearnut2: Cool Daviss! lol

Daviss: and a daughter lol lol lol

bearnut2: lol lol lol

alt: not me bearnut2, I can't handle any right now.... I'm still muddlin' thru th 23andme material along with the information from GEDmatch & Dr. McDonald....

veenGA: AYW I will send you the edits from this log for your review and comment

bearnut2: I gained a few cousins, a great uncle, and a half-sister! lol

fierybug08: So alt are you not doing 23andme?

veenGA: Congrats daviss and a daughter???

alt: where these 'known' relatives bearnut2 & Daviss?

AYWalton: looking forward to getting it, vkn!

Daviss: my daughter used a kit lol but now that I think of it she may see something on her dad

veenGA: gotta run please check out link

bearnut2: the great uncle and half-sister were.

alt: okay bearnut2


bearnut2: but it was good to see that we really ARE sisters... I just found her in 2007

Daviss: hopefully when this cousin she has that is not on my list will be on her fathers whenever he gives his sample does that sound reasonable bearnut2? and alt

alt: well y'all I gotta skedaddle , laters

bearnut2: take care cuz'n alt

AYWalton: well I just popped in for a hot minute. Hope you all have a good one!

bearnut2: Daviss is her father testing or is the cousin a male?

fierybug08: i've got to go too. see ya'll laters

bearnut2: talk dna and they scatter! lol

Daviss: her father will be testing (he promised lol) and this cousin that showed up on her relative finder is a male

bearnut2: oh I wasn't sure who the "he" referred to... is it a close cousin?

Daviss: not that sure lol but I think it may have been in that 3-distant

bearnut2: lol

Daviss: she won't give me her password lol lol

bearnut2: for shame! lol

Daviss: lol lol

bearnut2: so far I haven't had any problems getting passwords...I'll have to ask my sister for hers to see if she has anyone interesting

Daviss: you can bet I will be asking again lol

bearnut2: I wish they would have separate passwords available that would only allow entry into the ancestry portion for folks who aren't that interested in genealogy but don't want to give access to their health info

Daviss: that would be very very helpful.. I have asked for my two close ones to share but no response after two tries

bearnut2: don't use up all of your chances! you only get three time to ask and then you're locked out of asking them forever!

Daviss: wow, I did not know that

bearnut2: that only applies to the anonymous folks in your can contact the "public" ones anytime. But the anonymous folks you can invite 3 times and then thats it. And you have to wait a month between invites.

Daviss: I wish they would even have listed what states they are in

bearnut2: I least throw us a bone! lol

Daviss: that would even give me a little clue

bearnut2: well, I need to go update my spreadsheet and make some calls. Catch ya later!

Daviss: k have a good one

bearnut2: you too!
