AYWalton: It is good.

deannie: I say it it at our meeting about 2 years ago...I enjoyed it

daviss: The radio blog was good Selma

AYWalton: daviss, I doubt it about the Ft. Worth Archives---unless it is contained in another file I would think. deannie which Archives was this? Illinois State Archives?

deannie: Yes.....

AYWalton: ok that makes sense. Many state archives do have death records.

deannie: Yes...Illinois State Archives

AYWalton: the MD archives---known as the MD Hall of Records had reels of death records. but not the national Archives nor its branches.

daviss: ok so FT Worth would be national then

deannie: I did not know I had family in Chicago in 1930, but I located him here.....

AYWalton: yes, the capital of TX is Austin, and they may have some there. the Archives in Ft. Worth is a Federal repository.

deannie: I lives 20 minutes from the National Archives in Chicago

AYWalton: I have done research at the Ft.Worth branch. I need to go back again.

daviss: wow thats close deannie

AYWalton: they have records from Indian Territory and many of the old tribal courts.

deannie: I know....

Seventies Soulchild: Hi HistoryBuff, jhonora, Khathu

HistoryBuff: Hey Khathu, AYWalton, Daviss, Deannie, Selma, Jhonora and Seventies.

AYWalton: what's new with you, khathu?

deannie: Hi historybuff

Khathu: Nothing much outside of working on history of Lorenzo Williams

HistoryBuff: Deannie have you had a chance to research at the NA location in Chicago?

AYWalton: well that's ok.

Seventies Soulchild: You know I checked with my local National Archives repository, and they didn't have RG105

HistoryBuff: How is your research working out, Khathu?

Selma: can they order for you seventies?

Seventies Soulchild: They only carry docs relevant to the Northeast

Selma: Oh OK..

Seventies Soulchild: No So it looks like I will be heading down to D.C. again soon.

Selma: Well since many of those FB AGents were from the North..there is a connection

deannie: I go all the time...but I have just learned about my family that was here in chicago around 1930....I thought they came here in the early 50's

AYWalton: Oh Soulchile you mean the one in NYC?

Seventies Soulchild: yes

Khathu: it is going slow

HistoryBuff: Ah good hunting, Deannie. Which repositiory are considering next?

AYWalton: well....uh...........ahem..........that's because our group has them SoulChile.

Selma: Ummmm LOL

Seventies Soulchild: WHAT??!! lol

deannie: Military record for Chicago.....

AYWalton: see when they moved, they gave up lots of microfilm and put out a notice that they were giving away microfilm to any non-profit organization that wanted microfilm.

Seventies Soulchild: get out! wow

daviss: wow!

AYWalton: they had a massive list, and I immediately sent an email on behalf of the Louis Diggs African American Cultural Resource Center---a new group here in MD. we were the first and we requested 732 reels of microfilm.

HistoryBuff: If I may ask, which type of military record, Deannie?

AYWalton: We got most of the states we got.

daviss: thats wonderful AYWalton!

AYWalton: and we hope by spring of this year they will be available to be used by researchers.

jhonora: thats great AY!

AYWalton: there were many more record groups they were putting up.

HistoryBuff: Great to learn that, AY!

AYWalton: also they expect that many of the states will be digitized within the next 2-3 years, so they decided to give it away to a non-profit group.

HistoryBuff: Deannie are you able to use the HQ Chicago Public Library-Harold Washington Branch?

deannie: Regisition.....I have just the internet....but I have not anything

AYWalton: we sent them our 501 (c) 3 number and a few months later 10 boxes of microfilm arrived.

Seventies Soulchild: Well I'm coming down to your spot AYWalton... :}

deannie: what is HQ

AYWalton: we are the only entity in the state of MD that has almost a full set. only 2-3 states were missing---but that's ok. we got the states I need! lol and more

Seventies Soulchild: lol

Selma: and thats what really counted right AY.. LOL

daviss: lol I wonder what states are missing

HistoryBuff: I had just recently heard the Louis Diggs Cultural Center. Where in MD is it located, AY?

AYWalton: uh....yeah!!!!!!!! where right now it is in name only-----we have been given a building, but it has to be restored. it is the old Pest House, a home for those with Incurable Diseases.

jhonora: The center will be a library system branch or owned entirely by a group?

AYWalton: It was built in the 1800s by former slaves. and was used till the mid 20th century. the center will be a part of the Baltimore County Historical Society and it rests on their grounds. it is structurally sound, but needs to be completey refurbished.

Selma: Are you having a ceremony when it is opened..let me know I would like to come

daviss: isn't that something.. Well Congrats to you guys

jhonora: How many sites/properties does the County Society have?

AYWalton: the historical society gave the building to Mr. Diggs in his name for all of the work that he did to document black communities in Baltimore County.

HistoryBuff: Me too, ay.

AYWalton: the society itself sits on several hundred acres and is beautiful. The pest house sits on their grounds.

Seventies Soulchild: Ok its almost my bedtime.. lol see y'all tomorrow.

jhonora: That is awesome!

AYWalton: there will proabably be a ceremony for sure when it opens. I shall let you know, Selma!

Selma: Is the name Pest a person's name..or was it cause folks with incurable diseases considered Pest

AYWalton: we are awaiting a preservation grant.

daviss: hello gsft1

AYWalton: Not sure---I think the latter, Selma.

jhonora: Will the renovations equip the building for archival storage as well as research?
