Bearnut2: Its going! lol I have a mystery to work out...

deannie: Do tell Hi bbenn

vkn: bbenn how you be? Good to see you

Bearnut2: hey bbenn--talk to your cuz yet?

bbenn: Hi deannie, Bearnut2, Seventies Soulchild, vkn I have not spoken to him yet, called but no response.

Bearnut2: you'll probably have to call him again--Sunday late afternoon is good cuz I'll be over there

bbenn: ok, I will call tomorrow.

Bearnut2: mystery...

deannie: yes

Bearnut2: my paternal grandma and her known first cousins came back as dna 5th cousins... cousin--only one so I tracked down a 2nd cousin to them both and sent him a kit so we are waiting to see who is "odd man out" so to speak

bbenn: how many segments did you match with your 5th cousin?

Bearnut2: My grandmother matched one paltry little segment with him as did her brother and her sister matched 2 with him...but "genealogically" they are supposed to be 1st cousins, their parents were siblings

vkn: hmmmmm DNA is above my pay grade

Bearnut2: The percentage should have been 8-14% but it was only .13% lol

bbenn: interesting?

Bearnut2: my father and I shared no segments with him very interesting!

bbenn: I matched two sisters who did not match each other, now that's a mystery or a big error in the system.

vkn: whoa

Bearnut2: yikes! what did they say?

bbenn: my sister matches my daughter as her mother!lol lol

Bearnut2: lol--identical twins?

bbenn: Did don't know what to say. I am going to meet them in a couple of weeks. yes, identical twins.

Bearnut2: I am glad that my half sister came back as a match with our family--they didn't do dna tests back then

bbenn: My European matches are sending me lots of information but I cannot find the connection.

vkn: do you need need to do retesting bbenn

bbenn: probably

Bearnut2: yeah same here but I think I need to get my great uncle a y test and that will help a lot you shouldn't have to retest but those sisters probably need to unless you didn't match your daughter as her mother...

bbenn: I think that they are requesting to be retested. I would...something is definitely wrong.

vkn: oops gotta run y'all be good

bbenn: My daughter has two mother's:}

Bearnut2: I hope it was a lab error and not a "switched at birth" error

bbenn: Our children test as half siblings...they love that:}

deannie: I know you do

Bearnut2: thats cool bbenn

bbenn: Gee, I really hope that it is a lab error. The funny think is that they both match everyone in my family. funny thing...

Bearnut2: whoa

AYWalton: Good evening all.

Bearnut2: that is majorly weird! do they have anyone else in their family to test?

deannie: Hi Angak Sorry Angela

bbenn: I don't know.

Bearnut2: Hey AYW

AYWalton: howdy bbenn, Bearnut2, deannie, SoulChile. lol that's ok. how you are all well.

bbenn: Hi aywalton

AYWalton: I am sneezing with allergies but that is normal for April.

bbenn: I was waiting for you to call in last night with your 1940 story...

deannie: You are not by yourself

AYWalton: lol I didn't want to call in and say that I can't find my daddy! I had thought about it though.

bbenn: lol

AYWalton: I have found aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Bearnut2: lol

AYWalton: And I have my mom as well, before she had met my dad. they didn't meet till about 1946 or so.

bbenn: I tried looking for my mom but I will have to look through census for 3 States.

AYWalton: I may have to wait till the state is indexed. I am now looking for my dad in Oklahoma counties as well.

Bearnut2: most of my folks moved after 1930 cuz very few are where they were before

bbenn: The rural areas definitely easier then searching in the city

AYWalton: so the migration had begun, huh bearnut? and where were they in 1930?

Bearnut2: yep but they didn't move north or anything, oh no, they moved across town to a different district lol

AYWalton: ah lol where were they based, bearnut2?

Bearnut2: Tennessee, Florida, ALabama

AYWalton: I see. you still have ties in those states?

Bearnut2: Pretty much--I'm going to FL this summer for 2 Family reunions and research

bbenn: good night everyone!

AYWalton: nite bbenn

Bearnut2: I don't know anyone in AL but there are some still there

AYWalton: I see. you are in St. Louis, right?

Bearnut2: yep--remember Charles Brown

AYWalton: yes did you grow up there? Or what took you there?

Bearnut2: I came here in 85 to go to college and never left

AYWalton: I see! where did you go? Wash u? Umsl? SLU?

Bearnut2: Washington University

AYWalton: I went to SLU.

Bearnut2: really? small world!

AYWalton: yep it sure is.
