Seventies: The weather still has a lot of public transportation in a mess on the east coast.
alt: I 'resemble' that statement Daviss LOL
Daviss: lol I am really trying to figure out what my next step will be regarding genealogy not sure what route to take
alt: saw an interesting posting ny Dear Myrt.. about Blacks and the Marine's & 1942.
Seventies: Well, Daviss... what about looking at entire record sets...
Daviss: like what seventies?
Seventies: I know I usually find some good stuff in the marriage records. Even if its someone I'm not necessarily looking for.
Khathu: Hello everyone
Seventies: Hi Khathu.
Daviss: you mean records from Adams County?
deannie: hi Khathu
alt: for some reason she read a USA Today and got the impression blacks didin't serve in the military until an executive order signed in 1942 ..... Hello Khathu
Seventies: Yes. Like the man who had to prove who he was to collect SSN. His marriage certificate was amended. Now if his family was looking for him, they wouldn't know who he was based on a name change he explained in the amendment attached to the record. That was interesting to me. And this was in the 1940's
Daviss: alt, surely you jest about Mert lol lol
Seventies: alt, you are kidding me... lol
Daviss: oopps myrt
Seventies: Well this is to be expected.
Daviss: Hi Khathu
Seventies: If its not their history, it isn't worth bothering with.
Selma: Did Dear Myrtle reply alt
Daviss: That would not be bad if the area I want listed their marriage records Seventies
alt: nope!!!! I saw the post on FaceBook and mentioned to her that I had AA ancestors in the War of 1812, the CW, WW I & WW II prior to the exec order for the marines in 1942.
Daviss: sheesh alt, I need to read her reply
Seventies: Well Daviss.. just trying to give you some ideas. :}
Daviss: just saying seventies!
Selma: Afternoon Khathu
Seventies: Even if you can't help yourself, maybe you can help someone else ;}
Daviss: thanks for your ideas though lol lol been doing that since 92 Seventies
Khathu: Good afternoon Selma
Seventies: Okay well, don't know what to say Daviss. Maybe its time to sit down and write a book on what you know...
Daviss: I don't know nothin seventies
Selma: How is your project going Seventies?
Seventies: Slow.. lol
alt: on Dear Myrt... I think she just 'mis-read' the statement on the Marines & 1942.
Seventies: Actually now that my computer crashed, its at a stop..
Daviss: ahhh I see alt
Seventies: Hoping the techs at Best Buy can retrieve my data. If I had the XP boot disk I could do it myself....
Selma: I hope so too seventies..they did for me a couple of years ago, when I had that problem
