AYWalton: Howdy alt, Daviss, fierybug08, HistoryBuff, Ms. Selma, SoulChile!
Selma: Afternoon AY
alt: Yep Seventies Soulchild, I'm trying to find at least one line that goes back to the original ancestor from Africa and tis line is about as close as I've been to this point. Hello AyWalton, G'Friday to ya.
AYWalton: thanks alt, the same to you!
Seventies Soulchild: ok... I have a question for you though alt. Do you think that perhaps your ancestor may have been part of the Moroccan slave trade by the Portugese?? Though it was limited in scope.
fierybug08: hi AYWalton
alt: I doubt it Seventies Soulchild, more likely English and coming into VA thru the VA Slave Trade ... at least this particular family line.
Seventies Soulchild: ok
fierybug08: Seventies...are you agoing to participate in Kwanzaa events in the DC area this year?
alt: nad this time frame would be late 1600's to the early 1700's.
Selma: I took a look at the VA Slave Trade Statistics..lists ships that arrived in VA during that time frame alt..needless to say no names, only numbers and where they landed. Upper James, Lower James, Rappahannock The book covers from around 1699 to 1760
alt: right Selma... what I saw for those ports was somehing like 47,000 slaves imported before 1750.
Seventies Soulchild: Yes I plan on going this year. fierybug08
Daviss: 47,000 man o man!
Seventies Soulchild: My tenative plans are to stay at Bolling AFB like I did last year for the week of Kwanzaa
fierybug08: well...I'd be interested in finding out about the events. Where do they usually have it?
Seventies Soulchild: I'm not a D.C.er so I'm not sure.
fierybug08: okay...guess I will start looking around for the events happenings.
HistoryBuff: I need to identify the organization that promote those events.
Seventies Soulchild: I also have some folks down there like family who are good friends with my family from back in AL days.. lol

Seventies Soulchild: This just posted on my FB page... what y'all think? http://www.geni.com/blog/african-american-genealogy-part-x-the-modern-marvel-of-dna-370308.html
alt: I saw a great map of Africa .. pre-colonization... Ethiopia extented across almost all of central Africa and Eygpt was aprt of what was termed Nubia along the coast of the Red Sea.
Seventies Soulchild: Is that the one with Soudan almost across the entire middle of the continent?

HistoryBuff: I like that. It looks very interesting.
alt: yes Seventies Soulchild, it is on the DNA tested African ancestered FaceBook page vkn
AYWalton: I love maps and in fact went hunting for a good handheld GPS device yesterday for some mapping projects I wanto do.
Seventies Soulchild: That map keeps popping up in several places... that's a good sign.
HistoryBuff: I agree Seventies.
AYWalton: Old maps are fun, although ancient maps are not accurate, nor to scale. They are still so amazing to study.
Selma: Does Sharon Morgan post on the Afrigeneas Forums seventies
AYWalton: where is Sharon Morgan based these days?
fierybug08: Seventies...thanks for sharing the link.

AYWalton: I learned at Ft. Wayne that she is no longer in Chicago.
Seventies Soulchild: I haven't seen Sharon post on Afrigeneas in a while. We are friends on FB though.
alt: I think so too Seventies Soulchild, it gets African ancestered folk away from the countires as they are named today and more in touch with their clan and/or tribal affiliations
