Daviss: heyyyyyy BBENN, great show last night
BBENN: Hello Seventies and Daviss
Daviss: I went back last night and listened again
Seventies: Yes it was... I actually had some relevant questions last night..a first for me.. most times I just listen to learn.
BBENN: Thanks, fascinating records and so happy to have the resource in Afrigeneas slave database. Your questions are always relevant:}
Daviss: I wanted the name of that first ship ..The FS Mexico
BBENN: I have spent time just looking at names on those records and they are calling the descendants to find them.
Daviss: Is that Port Of LaSalle in Texas or LA
BBENN: I need to listen to the broadcast because I thought it was LA.
Daviss: I think the name of my sis in laws grandfather is LaSalle his given name
BBENN: I had a teacher named Mr. LaSalle who taught Spanish.
Seventies: I would've loved to hear a bit more about the other ports such as Mobile, Galveston, that brought people to these states.
Daviss: I would like to hear about Galveston
BBENN: Well, I will bring her back in 2013.
Daviss: dang I wish I were near an archive
Seventies: Regarding the slave ships, I think that some were dropped off in NYC to build up Manhattan. Remember not too long ago they found the remains of a ship under the WTC...
BBENN: This could also be an interesting project for someone. Ck. out the late Dee Parmer Woodtor's work on Afrigeneas to see what she and others transcribed.
Daviss: Oh I have on numerous occasions
BBENN: That could have been a ship from the transatlantic trade rather than the domestic trade.
Daviss: just to look but I have not gotten that far in my research
BBENN: Daviss, being close to an Archive is a blessing and a curse! I use to go to the Archives almost everyday because it was one block from my office.
Daviss: lol I think I would be there everyday
Seventies: me too!
BBENN: I made major withdrawal when I retired.lol lol lol
Daviss: lol lol
BBENN: Now, I hit to Archives once or week . If I have a client, more than once per week. You know that Ilol lol lol must have been hooked on the Archives to come up with that name for my show. Any news from Birmingham?
Daviss: not today BBENN
Seventies: VKN did post something a couple days ago.
Daviss: I guess they are getting to the meat today
BBENN: Are either of you attending Roots Tech?
Daviss: Not I lol and I know they would not want me there lol major frustration would set in not me but them lol
Seventies: Lol I plead the fifth.. lol
BBENN: I am thinking about it. Maybe a fairy gm will sponsor melol lol lol .
