Atlanta: I will post to surnames seventies under the name of Jeramy Rowan

Daviss: by the way I have yet to hear from the Burks person again. smh

Seventies: See its going to become a lost art. And I didn't even really need to read the guide, because when I was going to school they taught us and we are probably the last generation to actually have to write letters.

Atlanta: and the internet was crawling via nasa through the back alley of libraries there was no GUI lol

alt: Seventies, when I retired (1987) CRT's & personal terminals were just becoming the thing with AFLC.

Seventies: Well Daviss you know how that goes.

Daviss: not really sure of that Atlanta. Youngsters have a tendency to be more open

Seventies: I feel guilty that I hadn't called my cousin in a couple of months...

Atlanta: Also Daviss in the olden days we [not sure about alt] would count by county the number of surnames in a state from the Polk and then mark the numbers on the map

Daviss: I know that some things can be kept from the elders but I would want to know and have a more compassionate view and also Atlanta the reach out was done to get more info

Atlanta: Daviss remember we are talking about the father of her grandmother who left the family without a word when grandmother was under age 10
