Daviss: naw did not see it Seventies

alt: I read the article Seventies .. wish 'Terry' the best.

Seventies: It was on FB while you were out of town Daviss. Thanks alt. Me too.

Daviss: I see Seventies...I left puter at home

Seventies: Just sitting here, that's something that I could write about in a book. I'm just not well researched on the Callins tho' and really I have no excuse not to be.

Selma: I saw it Daviss

alt: may not be your problem Daviss, but I find searching the census, 1940 & others, is best when I difficulty with the names is to search the area for blacks in certain age groups & gender ... this is using ancestry and the search filters they have

Seventies: All my family is here and its the family that I originally started off with the family genealogy. See I thought Daviss had done that already.

Daviss: I use that also alt and still came up empty. I gave her 2-4 yrs age difference

alt: that;s how I foind Anita in the 1940 census .. her family is listed as Howey rather tahn Harvey in the index.

Selma: Folks..gotta run Have a great day

Seventies: bye Selma

alt: perhaps she was in a different area than you believe she was in for the 1940 census Daviss

Daviss: I used all name spellings first and last that I could think of I searched all and then narrowed it down to Harrison County and then Harris County I am dumb founded

alt: how about wild cards for all females named Zep***** or any combinations.

Daviss: yeppers done that too and also used her middle name

alt: okay, just keep on plugging.

Daviss: I know Well she is the ggranddaughter of you know who oh alt did you get your ancestry results back yet?

alt: just got a call from son in NJ..... he is in Union, near Hoboken. Jersey City, etc. no power, gas stations closed and grocery stores are low or out of stock on eeverything. Yesl I did Daviss.

Seventies: Yes NJ got hit hard, as was to be expected...

Daviss: Bless his heart alt. I wish him well

alt: right Seventies, expected and 'in it' are two different things.

Daviss: I think daughters brother may be stuck in Ok la for a long while
