alt: hello Selma, Seventies Soulchild, yatah, Daviss,

Seventies Soulchild: I'm officially stuck with my research. Its going to be a minute before I have something new to talk about. What are you all up to?

Daviss: Well that I can understand seventies

Seventies Soulchild: Daviss, I'm just well a little fatigued and a bit discouraged with my research honestly.

vkn: Glad to see each and all Selma Seventies Daviss Yatah

Daviss: So you have done all your collateral kin and everything

alt: "officially", huh? LOL LOL

Seventies Soulchild: lol yes it is official.

Selma: YOu have identified "all" the records you need to research I have been indexing alot of Washington DC 1940 records..lots of folks identified as Lodgers in other folks homes

alt: have you tried to fins new/additional information on folks you already have entered into your dtatbase?

Daviss: Hi Selma, I did not see you come in

Selma: I came in quiet for a change

vkn: lol

Daviss: hellooooooo Seventies lol

Seventies Soulchild: yes I have alt... hey I was getting some cheesecake.. lol

alt: Selma, I'm listed as a "nephew" and my father is listed as a Lodger in the home of my grandaunt where we were residing for the 1940 census,

Daviss: so you have done Collateral research also seventies?

alt: Just keep on looking for new information on those folks already in your databse Seventies Soulchild. I'm finding & adding new stuff everyday.

Seventies Soulchild: Some yes Daviss :}

Selma: A number of these folks could be family members..who have moved from rural areas to DC

alt: an by doing thise I often find information on other folks that I had no information on.

Seventies Soulchild: yes, I do have some information to look up for my gg grandmother's sister Mary from the VA

Daviss: are you doing the whole precinct or just the 5 pages front and back seventies?

Seventies Soulchild: 10 pages back and forward.

alt: the 1940 census for example.... did your folks own or rent? how much did they earn in 1939? where were they located in 1935, what was the highest level of education attained?

Daviss: ok because I have found that the very next door neighbor to my Joseph is listed two pages over

Seventies Soulchild: What I have been finding as my resarch went on is that the neighbors were some kin to the persons I had identified as relatives

vkn: Alt do you enlarge the text when you come to chat ?

Daviss: from what I can tell the census person went down one country road and came up on the other side..

Seventies Soulchild: ah ok.

alt: and as Daviis just pointed out the next door neighbor may be 2 pages away... as the "route" taken by the enumerator was not necessarily as we might think it would be. No I don't enlarge the text vkn.

vkn: hmmmm ok

Daviss: I have a cousin who lives about two blocks down that appears several lines down on the census. This of course is the 1930 census

alt: and in towns they may have circled the block before before they got to the other side of the street.

Seventies Soulchild: vkn that article you posted was um interesting.

vkn: okies which

Seventies Soulchild: TV Genealogy Shows & "Skip Gates" That guy was a pompous @$$

vkn: Oh yes I too thought it was of interest

Seventies Soulchild: Alright now since no one wants to discuss anything in the main forum... Anyone working on any military family members

alt: always Seventies Soulchild .. any aspect of the ancestors/relatives lives.

vkn: Ingrid I hope will soon take up the military banner

Seventies Soulchild: ok. Anyone working on WWI african americans?

alt: yes, anything in particular Seventies Soulchild?

Seventies Soulchild: I was looking over the military records for Adams Co, MS something I'm glad they released and I see many AAs who worked in the stevadore corp and labor corps

vkn: Seventies I like to focus the Reconstruction era

Selma: Have identified 2 WW I soldiers in the cemetery working on now...

Seventies Soulchild: WW I seems very untapped

Selma: I expect we will find more as we progress

Seventies Soulchild: At least for AAs. Partially because the records are still closed.

yatah: i not rem who one of you found that mary's parent i know it been long time ago gave to me

alt: I guess Seventies Soulchild, but as Selma often points out records are records and AA's just happen to be in them Miliatry & otherwise, but not always specifically.

Seventies Soulchild: Well I was referring to pension records and such.

Selma: I have a copy of the book PIctorials of AA in belonged to my mother in law's father..great photos

alt: for a point of discussion .. why would AA military records be closed?

Seventies Soulchild: oh my coke may be cold...brb

alt: maybe thes types of records are just now becoming available online.

Seventies Soulchild: I guess I should've been more clear. I was referring to service records kept at the VA

Selma: Yatah..if you don't mind me asking What have you done with all the material we sent you?

Seventies Soulchild: Most of the records I've been able to look at were people who turned in their DD214's or Service Records to the county they lived in.

yatah: Name: Joe Boderick Birth: date Death: dd mm 1972 - city, District of Columbia, District of Columbia, United States of America Civil: South Carolina if you can open one on ? i cant open i not member of that

Seventies Soulchild: I would like to know more though about the units that AAs were assigned to.

yatah: selma , i keep in file as save in case it match

Selma: Yatah..who is Joe Boderick

Seventies Soulchild: I did a little research on Camp Shelby, MS

Seventies Soulchild: Yes it was alt

yatah: do to add name that you ask me right

Seventies Soulchild: Camp Shelby was segregated and all soldier for WWI & II from MS had to report there for training. Or when they were drafted.

yatah: selma, 1870to 1900 if you cant find that fine withme

Seventies Soulchild: Y'all be careful with these headaches. I have a few people in the family who were carpenters in MS

alt: many are found at State archives in gov't records for business

Seventies Soulchild: I will have to check in Jackson for that. I wonder how deannie's trip is going??

alt: I found another intersting record set for Ohio in the early 1800's ... county bounty payments for "wolf scalps".

Seventies Soulchild: to control the wolf population? that is interesting. Thought that was only in states like Montana, North & South Dakota.

Selma: Yatah..I don't see that name in Joe Boderick in Calhoun in 1880 or 1900..or the surname at all Calhoun

Seventies Soulchild: How much were the bounties worth alt?

alt: can't remember the exact amount Seventies Soulchild,

yatah: Name: Joe Boderick Birth: date Death: dd mm 1972 - city, District of Columbia, District of Columbia, United States of America Civil: South Carolina try
