AYWalton: it was a wonderful show last night, Daviss, I agree!!

Seventies Soulchild: I'm not exactly a social butterfly.. lol
alt: Hello Grogan
Seventies Soulchild: Hello Grogan
Selma: Good afternoon Grogan
Daviss: I just want to help me for a change...
AYWalton: nothing social about indexing---in fact it is a solitary activity, SoulChile. Grogan, welcome. Is this your first time here?
Selma: You still can't find your grand parents AY?
AYWalton: nor dad nor uncles.
Selma: Wow.. and I know you have been searching non stop..and diligently
AYWalton: found lots of Bass cousins down in SW Arkansas, but my hometown is hiding my dad somewhere
Seventies Soulchild: Thinking about your predicament with Jack Yates. I bet if you looked at the total school district area you'd be able to find your mom.
Daviss: Hello Grogan, I did not see you come in
AYWalton: Are you a new researcher Grogan?
Grogan: yes it is my first time
AYWalton: or just new to AfriGeneas?
Selma: Well welcome to the Lunch Bunch chat Grogan
Seventies Soulchild: What about your grandmother Daviss? Had you found her?
AYWalton: ahhh then a bigger welcome, then.
alt: the 'routes' taken by the enumearators are giving me a 'headache'..
AYWalton: Where is your family from and what community are you researching?
alt: Welcome Grogan
AYWalton: (Grogan, just jump right in the chat---we cover all kinds of topics at the same time. lol )
Selma: Grogan..what state and counties are you researching?
Daviss: I have my maternal granmother in the same spot yes Seventies
AYWalton: I think that Bernice had a lot of listeners last night some who listed to the archived version of her show before the night ended.
Daviss: oh wait! wrong seventies its my great grandmother in the same place
Seventies Soulchild: ok
Grogan: Georgia for Myrtice Grogan family
AYWalton: that is a very unique name, for sure, Grogan.
Daviss: I need my grandmother and mother together....Houston
Seventies Soulchild: OK.
Selma: Grogan..have you found them on the census..what census years?
AYWalton: I see that she died in 1991 in Cobb County GA, is that correct, Grogan?
Daviss: How far have you gone back Grogan
alt: Houston and other larger cities can be tough Daviss if you aren't familiar with the cross streets for ED searches.
Seventies Soulchild: Isn't there a Jack Yates Alumni society??
AYWalton: wasit----there are TWO Myrtice Grogans!!! who would have thought that!!1
Grogan: That is correct
AYWalton: Another one died in 2009! wow! with such unique names as well! Amazing.
Daviss: right alt so what I did was get a central location and will focus on those ED's
AYWalton: Were they parent-child?
alt: okay Daviss
AYWalton: Grogan what was the relationship of the two Mytrice Grogans? Parent child, or cousins, how did they connect?
Seventies Soulchild: To be honest she could be anywhere because of the segregated school system she may have had to go through a couple of school districts to get to school. Something to consider.
Daviss: I know she went to Yates
Grogan: My family has a long history in Georgia
Daviss: back then that was the school
AYWalton: that's great, Grogan. have you documented them pretty much, Grogan?
Seventies Soulchild: Oh also, I called Blount County Public Library in TN last night. They were willing to assist with getting my Uncle's DC and some other info they have there at the library... FOR FREE!
Selma: Is FREE the operative word here.. LOL
alt: wonderful Seventies Soulchild
Seventies Soulchild: I was thrilled!
Daviss: thats a good free lol
Seventies Soulchild: Absolutely Selma! lol
AYWalton: Grogan what was Myrtice's (either one) maiden name.
alt: assist is FREE, you pay for the DC's LOL LOL LOL
Seventies Soulchild: No she said they could scan and e-mail to me F.O.C.
AYWalton: You still there, Grogan?
alt: now that is wonderful Seventies Soulchild those DC's must be online somewhere, right?
Selma: So you will make a small donation right seventies..to thank them for their assistance.. LOL
Grogan: I am just starting on the side of my mother
Selma: Are we chatting tonight..it is a repeat..of Reba
alt: there you go Selma.. genelogyical etiquette, at it's best LOL
Selma: That shut the room down.. LOL
AYWalton: well it is always good to be polite.
Selma: AY..do you have Hagan's book that they talked about last night
AYWalton: yes, I have it, Selma. She did a good job. I bought it last year at Samford.
Selma: Umm don't remember seeing
AYWalton: no----the year before.
yatah: i guess that i am quiet lol i better go now take care
Selma: Really interesting about the 2 sisters
Seventies Soulchild: alt, I originally went to the TN State page, but no luck with Blount County.
Selma: Bye yatah..have a nice day
Seventies Soulchild: Ben Washington died in 1961 and Scott in 1963
alt: the Dred Scott situation is very interesting in the span of time it covers and the implications all of the way thru the Northwest Ordinance of 1787...
Seventies Soulchild: What is the Northwest Ordinance of 1787?
AYWalton: Grogan---what do you have so far--anyone in the census?
alt: I gues the 'official' date of the decision is like 1857, but it (the case) really spanned 10-12 years.
AYWalton: yes the case went on for some time.
Seventies Soulchild: just googled it.
AYWalton: I think the daughters were also hidden for longer than a short time. which explains why Aunt Lizzie kept the curtains closed even into her old age.
alt: the Ordinance that prohibited slavery in the "old' Northwest Territory out of which came the States of OH, IN, IL, MI & WI...
Seventies Soulchild: OK
Grogan: Just getting started. Only family stories so far and talking at the library
Seventies Soulchild: This is a good time to get started, there is so much information out there Grogan
alt: and it was interesting that no sons survived to have children therefore the Scott surname 'daughtered-out'...
AYWalton: which Myrtice was yours, Grogan and was the other one an aunt?
Selma: Aunt LIzzie lived a long time Interesting they buried the babies with both Dred and Harriet
alt: yes,, and thru some very significant events ... this is the one who lived until1944-45, right?
Selma: Yes alt
AYWalton: Well when you need some help, feel free to ask. We are here to assist those who ask for assistance. that was so interesting wasn't it, Selma.
Daviss: now that was truly interesting Selma re babies
AYWalton: And it also suggests that they opened both graves later. How unusual.
alt: imagine living thru the CW, WW I & most of WW II .... wow!!!!
Grogan: Thank you my librarian said I would get help here
AYWalton: but my question is if this was not known---I didn't follow the part---might have to listen again----how was this discovered?
Selma: My husbands great grandmother did alt..she was born in 1860 and died in 1963
AYWalton: Well we assist those with questions, and many of us offer to look up data.
alt: is that right Selma .... that is some feat!!!!
Daviss: how far have you gotten with your research Grogan?
AYWalton: Tell your librarian thank you for mentioning AfriGeneas.
Grogan: I am just starting
alt: Grogan, have you used any of the Forums on AfriGeneas as yet?
Selma: Do you think they opened the graves to do DNA..to confirm the connection..and found the infants?
Seventies Soulchild: I was under the impression that the opening of the graves was for the burial of the deceased infants. The impression is that she had a record trail.
Grogan: I have been reading
AYWalton: And we are here at our computers waiting to help you, but you have to tell us something so we can do a search. So when you are ready, type away.
Seventies Soulchild: Hello ProfDru
AYWalton: ProfDru is in the house!
Selma: Afternoon Dru..
ProfDru: hello gang
Selma: Maybe you are right seventies..will have to listen again
AYWalton: hope you are well, ProfDru.
AYWalton: There was a lot in that show that I also want to hear.
alt: Grogan, if you have been reading the Forums on AfriGeneas be sure and take a look at the Archived messages thru the 'search' features... lots of good stuuf (Q & A's) in those archived messages.
Selma: Dru are you going to the Newsome House in the morning
AYWalton: Also after I called in, I could not get sound back for a few seconds.
AYWalton: I was disapointed that no other listeners called in.
Selma: Ok good..take notes
Selma: Thank you
Daviss: Hello ProfDru

AYWalton: what's new ProfDru?
Daviss: Grogan do you live in your area of research?
