Daviss: Hellooo there AYWalton!

Seventies Soulchild: Hello AYWalton.

Daviss: I think so seventies, is that the one you commented on

Seventies Soulchild: yes.

AYWalton: I just read the thread.

Daviss: How's it going with you AYWalton

AYWalton: Perhaps she is a beginner.

Seventies Soulchild: I thought maybe she could've done more research.

AYWalton: going fine Daviss, and you?

Daviss: Good advice though

AYWalton: sometimes folks want things given to them---and other times they don't have a strategy on how to find the answers.

Daviss: its going lol

vkn: Heyyyyyyyyy Seventies

AYWalton: vital records from a state like NC are a real treasure. hope you had a nice holiday, Vkn!!!!!!

vkn: Heyyyyyyyy Daviss Very nice

Daviss: and when they don't know what to do, frustration sets in

AYWalton: that's great!!! I rested all day yesterday, I was exhausted. lol

Seventies Soulchild: If they don't know they should read a guide. Plenty are available online for free.

vkn: Who did the Black Friday thing ?

Daviss: Ha!!

AYWalton: the lady with the question did not have a strategy in mind on how to find the parents of the grandchildren listed in the household. not me, vkn. I never do.

Seventies Soulchild: 8)

vkn: lol nor i or me

AYWalton: I find the madness to rush out and buy buy buy, to be very bizarre.

Seventies Soulchild: Let me tell you, I faced less danger being on active duty service... lol

AYWalton: lol, I hear ya SoulChile. and there are lots of acts of violence cropping up from Walmart to Costco.

Seventies Soulchild: Yes AYWalton, and really for what???

Daviss: always is this time of the year anyway

AYWalton: is it really all that necessary? Sometimes I think folks have just lost their darn minds!

vkn: Peeps like notion of getting something for nothing

Seventies Soulchild: Most things sold at this time of year are junk anyway.

AYWalton: I guess. But standing in line, in the cold to rush when the doors open, kind of a strange cattle call.

vkn: Daviss I am really enjoying the Lincoln University Alumni Directory

Daviss: they do that same thing here in Feb for the annual book sale

Seventies Soulchild: Lincoln University, PA or MO??

AYWalton: which Lincoln is it vkn---there are two, you know. One in Pennslyvania--(that was the first one) and one in Missouri.

vkn: I agree

AYWalton: from both institutions and businesses like the GreenBook, and others. (might make a nice Quick Sheet, vkn)

Seventies Soulchild: I wonder if Alcorn state Univ has one?

AYWalton: (something to put in the think tank or the project list.) :)

vkn: yes AYW

Daviss: I wish I could find one for Paul Quinn and Bishop

Seventies Soulchild: Ok I've heard of Paul Quinn, but not Bishop. I presume Bishop is in northern TX

vkn: heyyyyyyyyyy bearnut

Daviss: I did find a Quinn Blog and wrote a query but no answer yet

Seventies Soulchild: Hello bearnut2

bearnut2: Hey y'all!

Daviss: Bishop started in Marshall Texas seventies then moved to Dallas.. Thats when the trouble began lol

vkn: AYW Victoria came looking for you again

AYWalton: I just noticed that Christian Fleetwood attended Ashmun Institute--in 1859-60s.

Daviss: do like Tyler and use a spoon lol like soup

bearnut2: not an expert vkn but I do use it and love it! lol

AYWalton: there is a webinar (or explorinar as he calls it) on evernote. I think Thomas Macentee did it.

Daviss: oops

AYWalton: I just created an account with Dropbox for myself.

Seventies Soulchild: dang it..

AYWalton: Now I have to upload some of my presentations to it.

bearnut2: oh thats cool AYW where can I find it?

Daviss: oh really AYWalton!

vkn: can you tutor me evernote. I love the results but having probs getting me to work it bearnut

bearnut2: sure thing vkn

AYWalton: I think it is on his site---High Def Genealogy. Let me check.

bearnut2: are you having problems saving notes to it vkn?

vkn: I have a dropbox acct but not using it

bearnut2: I have dropbox too but evernote is much easier to use for me

Daviss: and why is that vkn??

AYWalton: I created it for backing up documents.

vkn: Whole new concept daviss for old brain

AYWalton: read a good article about how it can come in handy---such as arriving at a place for a presentation and realizing you have left your flash drive at home, or brought the wrong one. What do you do?

Seventies Soulchild: nice

AYWalton: If you can get an internet connection, you log into Dropbox, pull out the presentation and download it---and voila---there is your presentation! It is a cloud. and they have 2 Gigs of space for free. and there is a way to get up to 8 Gigs for free.

vkn: I use iCloud with no prob bearnut but need a live walk thru with evernote

AYWalton: I am trying to see if I can find Thomas' Evernote presentation. I watched it, but have forgotten everything. lol

bearnut2: Evernote works pretty much the same way but I use it mostly when Im researching online to save stuff of interest

Daviss: brb

bearnut2: ok--when is a good time for you vkn? Im ususally available during the day.

vkn: Send me the link if you remember AYW

AYWalton: Here you are, vkn: http://hidefgen.com/recorded-explorinar-evernote/

bearnut2: I know what you mean HistoryBuff ! I went to the library today and was struggling lol nodding off at the microfilm reader

HistoryBuff: :}

vkn: Did yall notice the "survey" posting from Rich on GenHist

AYWalton: You were too tired, bearnut2

Seventies Soulchild: lol too much turkey

Daviss: oh no bearnut2 lol

HistoryBuff: I can relate.

bearnut2: lol too much turkey and too much workey I worked 44 hours in 4 days

AYWalton: You mean about Uncle Tom, vkn?

vkn: workey lol lol lol

bearnut2: lol

vkn: yes AYW seems to be fresh bait

Daviss: what was that about?

HistoryBuff: Interesting link to Explorinar.

Seventies Soulchild: Well bearnut2, did you get anything interesting?

AYWalton: that guy is on many lists asking questions---he is supposed to be a reporter.

Daviss: oh

AYWalton: He has asked such questions for years on many lists.

bearnut2: at the library Seventies Soulchild ?

Seventies Soulchild: yes

AYWalton: of course we know that many folks lurk, get info and then publish and become authorities on a subject.

vkn: I can tell that from his email address AYW Seems the least he might do is introduce self

bearnut2: I had 2 microfilm I'd ordered from FHC but had no luck with them. :( I have two more still coming that I hope are more successful.

Khathu: My holiday was okay

Seventies Soulchild: ok

vkn: Yes 'deed they do ayw

Khathu: I had a couple of family emergencies though

AYWalton: I wonder how many careers AfriGeneas has launched. lol sorry to hear about the emergencies Khathu.

bearnut2: family emergencies are not good Khathu

Seventies Soulchild: :|

Khathu: i will be in California for a week to deal with them

Daviss: oh my Khathu

Seventies Soulchild: Hope everything goes smoothly, Khathu

Khathu: just hoping for a full and speedy recovery at this point

Seventies Soulchild: The side eye is for the launched careers from Afrigeneas

bearnut2: lol SS

AYWalton: I think that I shall ask the question, vkn.

HistoryBuff: Wishing you well, Khathu.

Daviss: For sure Khathu.....

vkn: Prayers go up Khathu

deannie: I'm just learning today...I'm working on a crochet blanket that I have to finish

vkn: Good idea AYW to pose question

bearnut2: good luck deannie--I think the only crochet project I ever finished was a potholder

Daviss: oh deannie, thx for hooking me up with Marlene

AYWalton: seems like all he had to do was to use Google.

bearnut2: lol

deannie: no problem she's my gen buddy

AYWalton: several articles speak about the minstrel shows and how Uncle Tom characters are used to mock black folks.

bearnut2: I thought that too AYW--about google

vkn: and he assumes that Tom is viewed in the negative

HistoryBuff: Good for you Deannie. My sister-in-law presented her mother with a quilt she finished using her father's neckties.

AYWalton: but we know---folks get leads from us, then go out and follow those leads as if they are authorities!

vkn: indeed LOL we be incubators lol

deannie: The twins Lettie and Nettie my beautiful quilt...the last one of their sister last week

bearnut2: lol vkn

Daviss: not understanding Deannie

bearnut2: I thought maybe it was just me lol

Daviss: are the twins guideing you guiding

vkn: Talk at y'all 2morry Love to each and all

bearnut2: take care vkn

AYWalton: take care

Seventies Soulchild: So let's talk about Alabama.

bearnut2: sweet home Alabama...

deannie: Do you know the twins that is in the AAGHSC

Daviss: I have heard them mentioned

AYWalton: what were you saying about them, Deannie?

Seventies Soulchild: I am having some trouble trying to figure out what records they have at the county level and what is at the Dept of Archives and history

AYWalton: you mentioned a quilt then something about a sister or the last remaining sister.

deannie: That they to beautiflul quilt...they do a lot of genealogy ones

Seventies Soulchild: I know every state is different, but I really want to understand their rules.

Daviss: ohhhh I see deannie

AYWalton: you mean that they make beautiful quilts. and genealogy quilts? Well think about affairs that would be unique only to one county.

bearnut2: Me too Seventies Soulchild -- I really wish I could get down there

AYWalton: the only exception might be land records.

deannie: Yes, one of their sister passed....not one of twins (Lettie & Nettie) yes

AYWalton: ahhh ok, now I see what you mean---they had a sister who died recently.

Daviss: sorry to hear that

Seventies Soulchild: I was told that the county maintains death records while ADAH does not.

AYWalton: so they are the only girls left is that correct?

deannie: Did you meet them at the conference

AYWalton: Lettie and Nettie were both at the conference.

deannie: yes

AYWalton: what state, SoulChile? I hope to do some backing up of data now that I have a Dropbox account. Uploading things to a cloud is a good way of saving data for sure. I also have a portable Hard Drive which is useful as well.

bearnut2: AYWalton what kind of affairs would be unique only to one county?

Daviss: I think Soulchild was talking Bamer

AYWalton: County land records, county court records,

Khathu: Has any one heard of confederate citizen records

AYWalton: I would not expect chancery court records from Sebastian County Arkansas (one of my counties) to be kept in Little Rock and the Arkansas History Commission.

bearnut2: oh ok you mean particular county records not records that only one county could have

AYWalton: They keep state records---business affairs of the state. I mean records unique to one county only. and to the business of that county.

bearnut2: gotcha-- brain fart!

AYWalton: Like the National Archives---they don't keep records of state counties, or small town records. they record the National business.

bearnut2: I think they have them at Fold 3 Khathu

AYWalton: :) and records like death records---well the state Archives has no interest in the records of individual people like that.

Khathu: they are similar to the southern claim commission

AYWalton: Furthermore that is what the Office of Vital Records does.

bearnut2: yeah, I think I've seen them at Fold 3

AYWalton: they maintain Birth/Marriage/Death, not the State Archives.

Seventies Soulchild: Sorry was checking on the kids, they have a guest spending the night.

AYWalton: and Vital Records offices are apart from the state Archives. they are state run and managed, but not a part of the state archives.

bearnut2: so you've got an extra lil' darlin' huh SS? ;)

Seventies Soulchild: Ok I was asking about Alabama.. little, these kids are all 6 ft and above. lol

AYWalton: SoulChile is there an office of Vital Records for the state of Alabama?

bearnut2: lol

Seventies Soulchild: Yes I believe so, AYWalton.

AYWalton: I just found the answer. http://adph.org/vitalrecords/index.asp?id=1560 they are part of the Alabama dept of Health beginning around 1908 or so. the state Archives would not have them, as that is not "state business".

Seventies Soulchild: bookmarked Same goes for Oklahoma records, I think I'm not using the right type of query.

bearnut2: where are you looking Seventies?

Seventies Soulchild: I am looking for death records there too. In Muskogee.'

bearnut2: I'm sorry--I mean where are you querying?

Seventies Soulchild: I have been snooping around in the city business directory and found out some interesting things. I had an uncle who worked for Manhattan construction and a cousin who worked for Midvalley railroad.

Daviss: was this in Muskogee

Seventies Soulchild: yes

AYWalton: just google "Death records" and the name of the state. and when did your Oklahoma person die?

Seventies Soulchild: ok thanks AYWalton Not sure after 1960

AYWalton: Using Google creatively can open up many doors. there is probably no directory for deaths that recent. Write to the Vital Records office in Oklahoma City.

Seventies Soulchild: ok

AYWalton: the address will be online.

bearnut2: Maybe she can call them?

AYWalton: Vital records office Oklahoma Dept of health 1000 Northeast Tenth St. Oklahoma city OK 73117 4-5-271-4040 make the area cod4 405 405 (I will get it right!)

Khathu: good night everyone

Seventies Soulchild: Thank you AYWalton. You must write to them a lot.. lol

AYWalton: night Khathu Nope. I just googled. Have not used them in years.

Seventies Soulchild: oh

AYWalton: Last death record I got was more than 10 years ago, or more. I just googled Death Records, Oklahoma.

Daviss: no more ss records for 100 yrs

Seventies Soulchild: I had read something about that.

AYWalton: yes, the deceased has to have been born 100 years ago, so that the "authorities" can feel confident that the deceased person's parents are no longer living. amazing!!

Daviss: I procrastinate to much'

AYWalton: lol well now you have a longer wait.

Seventies Soulchild: omg

Daviss: I always kept saying I will and now I cant

bearnut2: geez!

deannie: I going to run so I can finish my blanket...have a great nite

Seventies Soulchild: nite deannie

Daviss: nite deannie

bearnut2: you too deannie

AYWalton: well I better skip out as well folks.

Daviss: nite AY

AYWalton: Have a good evening everyone.

Daviss: u2

AYWalton: nite all.

bearnut2: I hadn't planned to order anymore since they upped the price to $27 nite AY

Daviss: Now you cant at all bearnut

Seventies Soulchild: Where was this bearnut2?

bearnut2: I got a bunch when they were $7

Daviss: that was the price for awhile seventies

bearnut2: The SS-5 that you could order --application for SS #

Seventies Soulchild: ok Well that will work for my older relatives.

Daviss: and if you sent in the 27 dollars they wont return it either

bearnut2: now that sucks Daviss

Daviss: I know

Seventies Soulchild: lol you know that sounds just like the government... lol

bearnut2: sure does! lol most of the folks that I would want one for should meet the criteria anyway...

Daviss: I wonder if that also pertains to the RR numbers

HistoryBuff: I learned a great deal tonite. Got to run. Goodnite all.

Seventies Soulchild: RR numbers?

bearnut2: but I'm not planning to plop down $27 bucks on anyone any time soon

Seventies Soulchild: Nite historybuff

Daviss: how many years since they started SS numbers bearnut2

bearnut2: night HB

Daviss: nite

bearnut2: I think they started back before the 50's...let me check

Daviss: so that is not 100 yrs The RR number is diff than SS number seventies

bearnut2: The act was signed in 1935. No the person whose SS-5 you are ordering has to be over 100 years old and most folks didn't get a SS# until they were working--so around 20 years old at minimum

Daviss: yep they did not go out right away and get a card either especiallly those who lived in the country

bearnut2: so anyone I'd want to research would presumably fall into the correct timeframe. For instance, I don't need my grandma's (she's 86) but I might want her parents' SS5 so they would fall into the 100 year timeframe.

Daviss: most of my paternal line that I have DC's on had no SS numbers

Seventies Soulchild: ok

Daviss: even one of my gggrandfathers in Dallas had no number and he died in 52

bearnut2: but like I said--I gave up on ss5's when they upped the prices

Seventies Soulchild: Daviss, I noticed the same for some of my folks who lived in the country.

Daviss: but he was listed as a pensioner

Seventies Soulchild: I think that one uncle, Scott Washington had to get one because he worked for the WPA

Daviss: I am wondering how he and where he got a pension without a number

Seventies Soulchild: He had siblings who didn't get one, died in the 1960's

Daviss: even if he got an old age pension or welfare you would think he had some sort of number Is there some sort of link with names listed who worked for the WPA?

bearnut2: I don't know...looking now

Seventies Soulchild: I've been looking and I haven't found one yet. From what I was able to locate, teh records were kept locally.

Daviss: now that would be a goldmine!

Seventies Soulchild: I would love to know what my uncle Scott did for the WPA... Whatever it was required travel.

Daviss: usually they built bridges etc

Seventies Soulchild: He went from Oklahoma to Michigan to do the work

Daviss: Dams also. I had an uncle who helped with one here in AZ

bearnut2: found this: http://www.archives.gov/research/guide-fed-records/groups/069.html

Seventies Soulchild: is this an RG, bearnut2?

Daviss: thanks bearnut2

bearnut2: yes

Daviss: hmmm

bearnut2: Hopefully they will have records of the different projects and people... you're welcome Daviss

Seventies Soulchild: Michigan has their records online.

Daviss: appreciate that bearnut2

Seventies Soulchild: thakns bearnut2 now if I could only type thanks.. lol

Daviss: Ha!

bearnut2: lol

Daviss: question bearnut2

bearnut2: shoot

Seventies Soulchild: ok bookmarked

Daviss: when you download to Genmatch is the first person listed the closest person to you from 23andme or is it combines with FTDNA

bearnut2: Gedmatch? Yes, the people are listed in order of relatedness oh--it is 23andme and FTdna combined

Daviss: I see

bearnut2: You can tell which is which by their user number if it starts with M its 23andme, if it starts with F its FTdna

Daviss: I have two names that are my matches on 23 but wondered about the 3rd person ohhhhh ok lol dumb me

bearnut2: If it starts with C its a 23andme/Ftdna combined file it took me a while to realize that too! lol

Daviss: my first two are M and my 3rd is F

Seventies Soulchild: zzzzzooooonnnnniiiinnnnggggg lol lol lol

Daviss: I was wondering where that person came from lol

bearnut2: lol

Seventies Soulchild: I hope you all find your genetic kinfolk... best of luck with that.

bearnut2: thanks SS! its fun!

Daviss: I have not done FF so I guess I should wait to download until I do hiuh

bearnut2: wait to download what?

Daviss: on Gedmatch I did my RIF raw

bearnut2: ok...

Daviss: 23 and me

bearnut2: but what are you waiting to download?

Daviss: but I only had my mtdna on FTDNA

bearnut2: ahhh...ok now i understand

Daviss: whew! lol

bearnut2: yeah, your Mtdna wont do you any good on gedmatch

Daviss: ok

bearnut2: it only accepts 23andme and Family Finder data

Daviss: I see Ancestry is getting into autosomal now

Seventies Soulchild: ok its late here in NY. I have to run. Have a great day all.

bearnut2: yeah--it'll be interesting to see how it goes and how much they charge have a good nite SS

Daviss: nite nite 7

bearnut2: If its reasonable, I'll probably buy in just because its Ancestry

Daviss: thats the only way I would if its reasonable

bearnut2: and they will definitely concentrate on the genealogy side of things

Daviss: I can't wait until my brothers is read They only got it on the 10th

bearnut2: I've got 2 aunts I'm waiting for and a great aunt that I'm gonna strangle if she doesnt send her kit in soon!

Daviss: oops 10th lol

bearnut2: She's been "sending it in" for 2 months now

Daviss: I have a cousin that I want also

bearnut2: I'm trying to get some more known distant cousins to test so I can figure out where my unknown cousins are coming from

Daviss: I sent out the call more than once but got no replies

bearnut2: I've narrowed down a few with my 2nd cousin 2x removed testing

Daviss: kinda tees me off but what can you do

bearnut2: I sent the info out but I don't know if any of them "bit". now I've got a few extra tests so I'm going to try to get em that way

Daviss: I have one kit can we change the name later

bearnut2: I know! I've had a couple tell me "oh yeah, I want to participate" and then all I hear are crickets yeah you can change the name when you register it

Daviss: ok I guess I will let you go bearnut2

bearnut2: well, guess I'd better hit the hay lol

Daviss: I thank you for the other

bearnut2: no prob--hopefully i'll get to it this week sometime have a good nite

Daviss: no problem ok night

bbenn: Hello Everyone!

Daviss: lol hi bbenn

bbenn: I am too late for the chat?
