fierybug08: And I'm sure I can get a couple of folks to help too.
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?
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
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 http://www.fgs.org/rpac/
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
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 RF...you 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 know...at 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!
