Chatters: alt, AYWalton, Daviss, HistoryBuff, jhonora

jhonora: Hey alt!

alt: Hi jhonora, Happy between Christmas & New Year

jhonora: Same to you

alt: thank you, sir anything exciting going on with you? .... genealogically.. LOL

jhonora: Nothing genealogically, I've been taking this time to work on my history of the Knights.

alt: are you finding "new" good historical reference? or writing up what you already have? putting the pieces together so to speak

jhonora: Well, researching and writing. Every day new photos and tidbits come up. But I'm finalizing the chapter from 1909 to 1919.

HistoryBuff: Hey Alt and Jhonora. How are you?

alt: Hello HistoryBuff

jhonora: Hello HistoryBuff

HistoryBuff: Good for you on your writing journey, Jhonora.

alt: How many chapters will you end up with? covering a span of years from ??? to ???

jhonora: I change from 6 to 7 chapters, haven't determined finally yet. The span is 1909 to present

alt: okay, that's a span of 100+ years.

jhonora: Yep, the first council in Ohio was 1937 in Cincinatti

HistoryBuff: BRB

alt: ah so,,,, were there any particularly 'great era's" or is the history fairly level and even keel?

jhonora: My favorite era was the 20s, when they were almost fist fights on the convention floor (sometimes betw. priests and laymen). The best time was the 50s, when a Nat'l Headquarters was bought, Civil Rights involvement, etc.

alt: Who would have been the moving force for the 1st convention to be held in cincinnati, OH?

jhonora: The convention was never in OH, we had a local "lodge," we say "Council" in Cinc., I'd have to pull the names and let you know

alt: oh, okay.... my mistake.. thought I might recognize an Ohio name

HistoryBuff: Hey Daviss.

Daviss: hello alt, HistoryBuff and jhonora!

jhonora: alt, Carl W. Bates, Herbert Shepard, and a few guys from Covington, Ky., must have come into town

alt: hi Daviss... sorry bout Saturday's whupping the Bengals laid on ya :|

alt: Happy birthday to you HistoryBuff

Daviss: yw History

HistoryBuff: Thanks Alt.

alt: you are now old enough to vote, huh HistoryBuff?

HistoryBuff: Indeed at let 2 times 25 with 3 yrs plus. LOL

Daviss: Texas has DC's online years 1977,78 and 79 but they are not indexed or anything. You have to go page by page. I decided to just go in and put every AA I found in my county on a flash drive. I wish it were a faster way lol. I just got to Feb 1977 so far. I think I need another 2 or 3 flash drives

alt: okay HistoryBuff, just checking

HistoryBuff: let=least I can dig it, Daviss It takes time.

AYWalton: Good afternoon, all.

alt: you mean 1 4GB flash drive wouldn't hold that much data Daviss?

AYWalton: howdy alt, Daviss, HistoryBuff Hey hey hey it's honora!

Daviss: There she is....hey AyWalton

AYWalton: hope you are all well today.

jhonora: alt, I know I have an article somewhere with the story on how Cinc. came about, I'll send it to you.

alt: Hello AYWalton, how are ya?

AYWalton: fine and you alt?

HistoryBuff: Happy Holidays to you also AYWalton.

AYWalton: thanks HistoryBuff, the same to you!

alt: Okay jhonora, would love to read it.

jhonora: Hey AYWalton! Gotta run, y'all! See you this evening

AYWalton: Daviss, I sent you an email.

Daviss: I don't know Alt, I have never tried anything like this before

alt: 4 GB is a lot of data Daviss ......

Daviss: oh ok AYWalton, let me check ok alt thanks

alt: trying to save you some $$$$ on flash drives Daviss LOL

Daviss: Got it Angela and thanks much!!! lol I appreciate that savings alt

AYWalton: Sure thing, Daviss

alt: plans for the OGS Conf in April.... Anita is all set.... the 1st casino in Ohio will open in Cleveland... the week before the conference LOL... so I won't have to worry about keeping her occupied LOL LOL

HistoryBuff: LOL

Daviss: lol lol alt I bet it will really be crowded new casino and all

alt: I'm sure there will be some huge crowds Daviss and the slots might even be 'loose'

Daviss: Alt, I saw a really nice photo of you and Anita last night

alt: where

Daviss: It was on facebook In fact these were pics I had not seen before

alt: oh my, gotta take a look

Daviss: Go in and pull up Black Genealogy Conference in FT Wayne

alt: okay, will do... the one on '09 ??

Daviss: No, it was the one you and I were in

alt: really!!!!

Daviss: Angela had a couple of very nice pics also

AYWalton: I blogged the entire time and took many photos.

Daviss: I think they were just put up about a weed or so ago weed = week lol

AYWalton: but----they have merged the NBGS photos with the IBGS photos. and have the 2009 photos under the NBGS label.

Daviss: That was so confusing

AYWalton: When they are actually two different events and entities.

alt: is this on AfriGeneas Talking???

Daviss: no on Facebook

alt: oh, okay Daviss

AYWalton: There must easily be over 200 images up there.

Daviss: what was that lady's name that looked like I was staring her down lol lol

AYWalton: I think it was Janis Forte from Chicago, but her face was not too clear.

Daviss: it was not the case alt but it was rather funny

AYWalton: true I think you both were looking at something entirely different, but the photo was amusing to see.

Daviss: hehehehehe

alt: oh, oh, company a Grand & some great-grands

AYWalton: ahhh ok,alt. take care

Daviss: ok alt

AYWalton: History Buff did you have a nice Christmas?

Daviss: wb historybuff

AYWalton: wb History Buff.

Daviss: did we kick you out HB lol

HistoryBuff: Sorry AYWalton Thanks Daviss. Must have clicked on the wrong button. Yes I had a wonderful Christmas. My daughters cooked Christmas Dinner for their paternal grandmother and us. Did a wonderful job too.

AYWalton: that sounds nice HistoryBuff.

Daviss: sure does HB

AYWalton: Any plans for the New Year?

HistoryBuff: Indeed. we were proud of them and my mother-in-law loved it. She also loved her Birth of Hope Obama Baby doll.

AYWalton: oh that sounds cute.

Daviss: I was thinking Seafood Gumbo AYWalton if I can get some blue crab

AYWalton: that sounds so good, Daviss!! you have to send me your recipe.

HistoryBuff: I sure New years will be just as wonderful. How about you, AY Daviss and Alt? You got my ear, Daviss!

Daviss: I know I can find King Crab and Snow but I love the blue for season

AYWalton: I had an African stew at a friend's house and she had blue crab and shrimp in it. It was deloicious. good flavor!

Daviss: oh yeah I bet

AYWalton: ooops I really do know how to spell delicious. lol

HistoryBuff: Sound quite delicious indeed.

Daviss: I just use crab, shrimp and lobster in mine

AYWalton: Oooo, lobster, too.

HistoryBuff: Ummmmmm. :)

AYWalton: good thing I just had lunch or I would be raiding the fridge right now.

Daviss: I wish I could make it as good as my grandmother and mother but it will do in a oinch lol

AYWalton: lol

Daviss: pinch

HistoryBuff: Shucks! It is wonderful that you CAN make it period! :)

AYWalton: she right!

Daviss: I only can make a few things as I am not a cook but .......

HistoryBuff: Don't try it, Daviss. Sounds like you can burn. :)

Daviss: not I HistoryBuff lol

HistoryBuff: Hmmm yeah right.

AYWalton: but heck---who is a cook. I love cooking and can throw down in the kitchen, but am I a "cook"? The bottom line is if it tastes good and if it does, then you are a cook! Plus I always think that if you make most of your food and used very little processed and packaged food, then you are a cook.

Daviss: going on that analogy AYWalton my comment still stands lol lol

AYWalton: lol you are too funny!

HistoryBuff: There it is. You are on it, AY. Lol lol lol lol

AYWalton: I make my own cornbread (at least once a week) from scratch, and cook mostly fresh vegetables--and NEVER eat veggies from a can. I do make most of my own sauces also from scratch. Never was into the jars of Ragu, and such. They are either two sugary or too salty. Plus they don't taste like real food as when made from scratch.

Daviss: I love cornbread and crazy about hot water

AYWalton: I don't bake much, though. I can make my own bread, but have not done that in a while. And make cakes rarely and don't make pies much.

Daviss: I love red beans and hot water cornbread any day of the week with some fried catfisg yummy

AYWalton: except for cornbread and occasionally muffins. and then I cheat on muffins (unless it is corn muffins, then they are from scratch.)

HistoryBuff: Are we making you hungry, ALt?

AYWalton: ahhh red beans! My favorite is pinto beans, and also gr. northern white beans.

Daviss: two of my favs even though I have learned to like black beans

AYWalton: I like black beans also.

HistoryBuff: Sooo how many of those ancestors passed down those cooking skills to you ladies?

AYWalton: I must admit though I have never cooked black beans from the dried beans. I do cook pintos and gr. northern whites. I learned my cooking from my mother. I watched her. And she taught me how to make cornbread when I was small.

Daviss: I am serious, I am not a cook for real.. I loved Gumbo so much that I learned that

HistoryBuff: Wouldn't it be nice to name some of the homemade recipes after your ancestors.

AYWalton: well gumbo is not a bad thing to learn! you mean like Pauline's cornbread?

Daviss: my sister is the one that loved to cook

AYWalton: or Grandma Ellen's chicked and dumplings?

HistoryBuff: That's a start.

AYWalton: some recipes I just picked up. Plus I love to watch the cooking shows on TV. Some Saturdays, I spend the day watching the chefs.

Daviss: we did not grow up around any of our grands.. air force brats not stable in one place

AYWalton: ahh the casualties of mliitary families. oops spelling---military

Daviss: yep

HistoryBuff: Maybe some family elders and other members can speak about their favorite dishes from specific ancestors.

Daviss: I am the elder now HistoryBuff lol

AYWalton: most of my elders are gone. I should have asked my mother to tell me what she loved of her grandmother's cooking. Too late now. but that is good advice!

HistoryBuff: Okay. I'm sure you can use your creativity.

AYWalton: plus my dad was an excellent cook as well. he could thrown down---and I wish I had his BBQ rub. I know some of his ingredients, though.

HistoryBuff: My Linton Family Clan members have been posting recipes on their My website.

AYWalton: what is your family site? Or is it just for the family?

HistoryBuff: Of course include any family member you can think of.

AYWalton: true.

Daviss: I bet AYWalton, my x father in law could cook anything. And he could even make suit coats and pants

HistoryBuff: The one I just spoke of is the Lintons of Lee County Arkansas.

AYWalton: wow he was a creative man!

Daviss: He was the one born in Hope Ark

AYWalton: I did not realize you had Arkansas ties, HistoryBuff. Do you get down there? does one have to have a MyFamily account to see the photos, HistoryBuff?

Daviss: Is Lee County near yours AYWalton?

AYWalton: I in SW and NW Arkansas. I think Lee is in Central or So. Central Ark. near Hot Springs I believe. Is that correct HistoryBuff?

Daviss: I had an aunt who went to Hot Springs every year

HistoryBuff: yes. I'll try to post the link here.

Daviss: sent for my mom several times to go with her

HistoryBuff: I'm not sure and need to consult my map.

Daviss: ยทยทยท ass=RECP not getting it HistoryBuff

HistoryBuff: Yep. Hot Springs is in Lee County, AR

Daviss: try posting link again


Daviss: you have to have a password

AYWalton: Well I have to run, folks. Have a good one.

HistoryBuff: Okay Okay. I'll have to post the recipe on my AfriGeneans talkiing. Have a great day, Daviss. Take care.

Daviss: ok History that would be better take care
