AYWalton: with alcohol problems the family was probably tired of him over time. Sad. evpace, good to see you!

jhonora: He should have found a less respectable street to die on lol

Selma: Hi evpace and seventies

AYWalton: lol I hear ya honora!

evpace: Evening all.

AYWalton: or maybe that gave him a spec of dignity, being on that street.

evpace: Honora is an honorable name,yes

Selma: I love the way they always smoothly say..lets go to Ancestry dot com

vkn: lol @ Selma

keli1: they are paying the bills

jhonora: And they always manage to pull something up on the first try

evpace: They make it seem so easy.

AYWalton: Good point. They never use Heritage or Family Search.

Selma: Why would they..this is show is sponsored by Ancestry

AYWalton: true.

vkn: 2 families

AYWalton: hmm...........interesting.

keli1: ancestry is a business, they are not in the business of genealogy, family search

AYWalton: From Illinois to Connecticut. Same census year?

jhonora: Maybe he was on the railroads

AYWalton: is ist without question the same man?

Selma: My grandmother and mother always never know what goes on behind closed doors

AYWalton: ahhh a good thought, jhonora! she does have a point, Selma.

keli1: family search is in the business of provding an experience, that is why they are free

Selma: What does that mean keli..providing an experience

keli1: researching to locate your ancestors, to get excited, etc, ancestry doesn't care in that aspect how we love being in the records, no money with familysearch, but ancestry, the more they add, the more they want, they don't care if you get excited about researching, just pay

AYWalton: wait she went to make a call right then? I thought she would have done that ahead of the cameras.

Selma: Jeez AY..give em a break..they are acting "suspenseful"

AYWalton: lol

keli1: lol

AYWalton: who is the genealogist? ahhh ok, they just showed his name. Howdy Daviss!

Daviss: hello there!

keli1: he is lying lol

AYWalton: lol

keli1: hi Vicki

Daviss: heyy keli1

keli1: same man

AYWalton: what about age, or dates of birth, or year of birth?

keli1: wild man

AYWalton: another free commercial. I guess they have to say fully Ancestry Dot Com

keli1: money, money, mon ---ney!

AYWalton: lol true

evpace: Remember Georgie from last year.

AYWalton: so Jason has cousins in Connecticut that he may not know of. wonder how the son, Stanley ended up alcoholic and homeless?

Daviss: :|

AYWalton: returning to his hotel with the camera crew.

keli1: in the lobbby

AYWalton: ahhh he is working it quite well. interesting!

keli1: yes, I like it when they keep asking questions, it makes it a bit more real as it relates to steps to research, except we can't just fly here and there

AYWalton: he must have tons of cousins he has never met. with all of those children in the home. evpace, I was in DC today. Ended up at the Civil War museum and had a wonderful chat with Hari Jones

evpace: Great. Did Hari present in the auditorium AYWalton?

AYWalton: Yes, but I ran into him about a hour and a half before. I was taking photos and just went into the museum by chance. We talked over and hour. An amazing conversation.

evpace: Hari retired from the Marines.

keli1: I love Hari's presentations, they are so alive

AYWalton: he is wonderful! And guess what---he is from Oklahoma!

evpace: Yes he is.

AYWalton: ahhh he died in the mine!

keli1: I think my ggrandfather was a coal miner and died, somewhere around a coal mine, lol

AYWalton: wow

Daviss: Where in OK AYWalton is Hari from?

Selma: Jeez its a wonder they didn't all blow up..

AYWalton: Paul's Valley. Down in Chickasaw country.

Daviss: ok AYWalton thx

AYWalton: this is one of the first shows about an immigrant to American where they did not take the guest to the old country.

jhonora: I'm still not 100% convinced about the Stanley, Sr. being a bigamist

AYWalton: they only went back to 1900, and closed it out. quite interesting. I hear ya, jhonora. I wonder if some Sudekis descendants from those families will suddenly surface now that this had aired.

Daviss: Is it over?

Selma: Just about

keli1: 3 minutes Vicki

Daviss: Was it as enjoyable as the others

AYWalton: Kind of. I am glad they did end up going back 15 generations. They stopped with 1900.

vkn: different daviss

Daviss: hmmm wonder if that meant they could not go back further

AYWalton: sorry I meant to say did NOT go back 10-15 generations.

keli1: yea a little mystery added to this one, not all bells and whistles

AYWalton: Paula Dean is next week. interesting.

Daviss: Now that I want to see for sure
