Seventies Soulchild: That should be interesting bbenn

AYWalton: I am truly looking forward to that show! have new things been found since Ruth Hager's book?

bbenn: ALT, Thanks for posting the info on AfriGeneas...

alt: Dred Scott decision was a part of the Missouri compromise and the 1850 fugitive Slave Act , right?

bbenn: Yes, I think that this is the information she received in February from the Archives.

alt: yw bbenn

AYWalton: ahhh she received something new? How exciting!!!

Daviss: brb

bbenn: Very exciting! I cannot wait... to run

AYWalton: Looking forward to hearing what has been learned!

Daviss: I posted a picture on my facebook page the other day of my half sisters grandfather WE Banks and WEB Dubois

Seventies Soulchild: me too. I'm sure that there is more information than what has been published in school books.

AYWalton: I must have missed it Daviss! Going to look right now!

Daviss: That was one picture they did not have

Seventies Soulchild: I have a quick question for those who may know. Have Precious Photos been moved over to the Afrigeneas Facebook page?

alt: me too Daviss

AYWalton: on your FB page?

Daviss: yes AYWalton

AYWalton: in which album?

alt: I don't think so Seventies Soulchild... I think AfriGeneas is trying to promote Precious Photos and also add photos to the Facebook scene at the same time.

AYWalton: I don't think so, SoulChile, but you will have to ask vkn to be sure.

Daviss: Its right on the front AYWalton

Seventies Soulchild: I saw some on there today while browsing

AYWalton: I know that several people have asked me about Precious Photos and how to get them uploaded. Daviss, all I see is your profile page in red, and then lots of albums, and your posts.

Daviss: it should be there under Taylors Stars pic from last night scroll down

Seventies Soulchild: This is why I'm asking.

Daviss: No idea seventies I saw that also

AYWalton: a question for vkn who can probably give the right information.

Seventies Soulchild: I'm going to submit my photos. Submit them there.

Daviss: AYWalton, do you see the caption DeBois entertained

alt: tro Facebook or Precious Photos? or both?

Seventies Soulchild: Facebook. I have given up on the Precious Photos on Afrigeneas website

alt: Hello jtl3149

Daviss: hello jtl3149!! i did not see you come in? How are you

AYWalton: Daviss, all I see are a few photos---one of your granddaughter in the fashion show, and Irene Cara, and the cell phone cartoon (which was too cute!) and a man from Trayvon's family with tears in his eyes, and some folks for Easter. howdy jtl3149

Daviss: look to the right of Irene Cara

Seventies Soulchild: hello jtl3149

jtl3149: Good afternoon. I am trying to find out the meaning of surnames.

Daviss: Its just opposite of Cara's picture AYWalton...

alt: meaning??? how/where they originate form?

Seventies Soulchild: What surnames jtl3149?

Daviss: What surname is that jtl3149?

AYWalton: I have the old interface back so there is no "opposite" for me, Daviss.

jtl3149: Gaddy, Hammond and Tillman

AYWalton: Can't see the photo you mentioned.

Daviss: I will send it to you via email then AYWalton

AYWalton: oh thanks, Daviss!

Seventies Soulchild: Whenever I have questions about the origins of surnames, I use google. Always get an answer.

alt: You have a location and a timeframe for those surnames jtl3149?

Seventies Soulchild: On Gaddy/Geddie/Gaddie in the U.S.

jtl3149: Anson County, Wadesboro, NC 1700's, 1800's & 1900's

Daviss: you should have it now AYWalton

AYWalton: thanks, Daviss!

Daviss: What is the surname jtl3149

Seventies Soulchild: Ok with the exception of a few surnames, most of the names you're referring to come from Europeans.

AYWalton: a wonderful photo, Daviss! where did that appear? I think Gaddy is Irish in origin.

Daviss: Dubose was a guest at PrarieView

AYWalton: Ooops, looks like Gaddy might be Scottish. there is probably a Gaddy plaid.

Daviss: Is Gaddy the surname, I am lost

jtl3149: The names I listed are surnames. I will check into the site given by Seventies Soulchild. Thanks.

alt: If these are all in NC jtl3149 .... when does each first appear in census records and does the birth location give you any clues as to non-american origns?

AYWalton: Daviss you still chasing down 1940 census folks?

Seventies Soulchild: yes all of the names listed have their own sites with their family crests.

AYWalton: I am trying not to strain my eyes.

jtl3149: The names all appear in the first census taken in NC

Daviss: well AyWalton a bit here and there.. I am about to throw in the towel for all the census for a couple of days

alt: and that would be the 1790 census???

Seventies Soulchild: If you have a name like Mozingo or Shalongo I'd be interested.

jtl3149: yes 1790

AYWalton: although family's actually don't get crests---they are given to individuals. Family Crest sites are actually money making ventures to trick folks into thinking that they have found a family logo. They are popular, though. I think that there was a 1790 for NC. It was one of the original 13 colonies.

Daviss: Did your Tillmans venture to Ala and or Okla jtl3149?

Seventies Soulchild: Yes today they money making ventures. but the idea and practice of family crests is real.

jtl3149: Most of them stayed in NC. I have traced all three family surnames to Anson County, NC

AYWalton: although they have no historic connotation---people think that they do and they often use crests of someone who might have their surname, who received it, and use it as a "family" crest.

Seventies Soulchild: The pages do offer actual good information, origins and history about surnames.

AYWalton: I say create your own family logo ---if there is an artist in the family.

Seventies Soulchild: I think we are talking about two different things. Hello vkn

AYWalton: Greetings, vkn.

Daviss: hello vkn!

alt: hello vkn... how "be's" ya?
