Seventies Soulchild: :} Anything new going on with you?
Daviss: naww! I almost went with the kids to the zoo tonight but changed my mind..
Seventies Soulchild: oh... why?
Daviss: dunno, I just thought that I did not want to do all that walking next time lol
Seventies Soulchild: ok sounds good. ::} :}
AYWalton: Good evening ladies.
Daviss: lol we have season tickets so there is plenty of time and the night time zoo lights will be up for awhile
AYWalton: Howdy Daviss, hey there SoulChile.
Seventies Soulchild: Did you see the thread on surnames where the woman was having difficulty finding the parents of her great grand aunt?
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
AYWalton: Her family was from North Carolin, and NC Death records are online.
Seventies Soulchild: Yes I've been there. lol
vkn: Howdy to all
AYWalton: Greetings, VKN!!!!!!!!!!!
Daviss: true AYWalton
Seventies Soulchild: Hey vkn
vkn: Heyyyyyyyy AY
Daviss: Hi there vkn!!
AYWalton: Many don't have an idea in their head of which records to use for each line.
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 ?
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.
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: Did you see it AYW
Daviss: thats good vkn. I re looked again hoping I could find someone
AYWalton: I have not seen it, vkn.
AYWalton: googling for it right now.
Daviss: the link is on the forum AY
vkn: on SOCI AYW link her up Daviss
Seventies Soulchild: That's the school Kwame Nkrumah attended. I wonder if he is listed in the records?
Daviss: one min
AYWalton: I see one from 1946.
AYWalton: yes, Nkrumah attended the one in Pennsylvania.
Seventies Soulchild: Where can I find the link?
AYWalton: there is a building named after him and after Azikwe.
AYWalton: Nkruman-Azikwe Hall is right at the entrance.
vkn: Daviss will link it from SOCI
Seventies Soulchild: ok thanks Daviss
Daviss: good bios
AYWalton: takes a while to load, but worth looking at now that I have it.
vkn: The OCR is faulty but the info is great
Seventies Soulchild: bookmarked.
AYWalton: How did you find it, Daviss?
Daviss: I posted it the other day AYWalton
Seventies Soulchild: Wow its 9.35 mb large...
AYWalton: the PDF image that I am looking at is great!
vkn: AYW she also found Meharry and Fisk
Seventies Soulchild: That Meharry thing really worked out for me. Daviss can't thank you enough.
AYWalton: I have used the Meharry directory!
Daviss: I would have loved to have seen pics with those bios
Seventies Soulchild: Verified B.E. living in Nashville, TN and his move to McMinnville, TN I love connecting the dots!
AYWalton: I see that there is also a Lincoln Centennial edition of the alumni directory from 1954 online!!!
Seventies Soulchild: Saving the Lincoln pdf to my genealogy docs
vkn: The pics in the Fisk one are nice and nice
Daviss: yes they are vkn..I like lol
AYWalton: these are great!
Seventies Soulchild: oh goodness... 12.28 mb
Daviss: lol lol seventies
AYWalton: Perhaps there should be a compilation of sites with these yearbooks and directories.
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: Heyyy there bearnut2!
AYWalton: yes, I hear that she did, and I missed her again. I hope she shows up tonight. Howdy bearnut!

AYWalton: My collards are gone, pot likker and all.
Seventies Soulchild: ooh...
bearnut2: I haven't forgotten about you Daviss I'm still working on getting the family done
Daviss: lol no problem bearnut2
Seventies Soulchild: Mine would be gone, but I didn't make any corn bread.
bearnut2: ok, yall are making me hungry...
vkn: bearnut did you say that you are a evernote expert
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.
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
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/
vkn: almost any day though after 6 is less disruptive
AYWalton: The exporinar is free to view.
vkn: Thankee mam
bearnut2: cool thanks!
AYWalton: you are welcome! Greetings, HistoryBuff!
deannie: Hi Historybuff
bearnut2: Hey History Buff!
HistoryBuff: Hey AYWalton, Bearnut2, Daviss, Deannie, Seventies and Vkn. How goes it?
vkn: But I am available on your schedule bearnut. I will explore the link from AYW and will be able to tackle the concept better
AYWalton: All is well, HistoryBuff, how are you this evening?
Seventies Soulchild: Hi HistoryBuff
bearnut2: vkn--I work evenings--if you still need help after the explorinar, we'll get together
AYWalton: greetings, Khathu!!!
Khathu: hello everyone
Seventies Soulchild: Heyyyy Khathu
AYWalton: good to see you Khathu!
vkn: Howdy HistoryBuff Howdy khathu
bearnut2: hey Khathu
deannie: hi khathu
HistoryBuff: Hey Khathu.
Daviss: ok back!!
AYWalton: I am trying to watch more explorinars and webinars to improve some of my online use!
bearnut2: wb big D
Daviss: hi there khathu and HistoryBuff
AYWalton: wassup Khathu!
HistoryBuff: I'm sleepy but I think I can hang on for a while.
Khathu: nothing much
AYWalton: did you have a good holiday Khathu?
bearnut2: I know what you mean HistoryBuff ! I went to the library today and was struggling lol nodding off at the microfilm reader
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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?
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
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.
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
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: 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: question bearnut2
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
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
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
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
