2012-11-14 • Taking a research break
Seventies: hi karoshi8
karoshi8: Hi Seventies! How's it going?
Seventies: Pretty good
karoshi8: Anything new?
Seventies: No not right now karoshi8... just waiting on some docs... DCs specifically.
karoshi8: Oh, did you have to order them?
Seventies: Yes ordered and waiting on a response from the Dept of Archives in MS I called ahead to get some pricing and I'm glad I did. Hopefully it will expedite the process.
karoshi8: Ordering them from vital records gets expensive!
Seventies: Well its $27 for one hour of research, a $3 mail fee and .25 per copy..
Seventies: When I first ordered a DC from MS it was $15 and in less than 3 mos the fee went WAAAYYYY up
karoshi8: That's a lot to me!
Seventies: karoshi8, me too BUT I tried to cram like 10 records in the order. I want to make them work for that one hour.. hard.. lol
karoshi8: I was trying to get some from Ohio but they are 21.00 plus a 10 dollar processing fee each.
Seventies: For uncertified copies?? wow!
karoshi8: Lol! Well, that's not bad, I thought it was 27 each one I'm starting to burn out a bit. I need to take a step back.
Seventies: Yes I have been stepped back for a while now karoshi8... not that I don't have anything to research, but I work full time and have two teens.. My son plays football and we are in championship season... so lots to do.
karoshi8: That is a lot. How do you mange it all? I work from home and I don't have any kids. I think I'm doing this about 10 hours a day in between work.
Seventies: Well sometimes on sleepless nights I get online and just start going at it. I take away a few moments at work... etc. Getting it in where I can. Good morning, Daviss.
karoshi8: Hello Daviss!
Seventies: Go ahead and make your coffee... :}
Daviss: hello karoshi8 and seventies!! How's everything
Seventies: Pretty fair.
karoshi8: Going well.
Seventies: How is everything with the AZ diva? :}
Daviss: oh you tease Seventies lol
Daviss: Everything here is ok. waking up cold now so I guess its time to turn on the heater
Seventies: 70 doesn't count as cold... lol
Daviss: does too..
karoshi8: Lol! I've had my heater on for a couple days and I'm in Florida! 70 is cold!
Daviss: lol karoshi8
Seventies: OK so I will trade your 70 for 39... right now...lol
karoshi8: It's 72 right now and I'm drinking hot chocolate. No thanks! I moved from Ohio to get away from that cold.
Daviss: reading back karoshi8 did I see you need to step back from your research
karoshi8: Yes, I'm getting burnt out.
Seventies: afternoon vkn

Seventies: I take a break every six months... in the fall.
Daviss: hi there vkn!

karoshi8: Trying to transfer everything from ancestry to tribal pages. I've done 4000 and that is just one side of the tree. Still not done!~ Oh that's vkn! That is very sweet of you! Thanks*
Daviss: you sound like alt with all those peeps lol
Seventies: Good luck with that karoshi8. That's probably what's tiring you out!

karoshi8: In Orlando.
vkn: I have been working a bit on the Lena BRAND case
Seventies: Ok who is Lena Brand?
Daviss: ah my nephew lives in Orlando....
karoshi8: Found out why everyone seems to be marrying into the same families. Apparently, they were very prejudiced against people with darker skin.
Seventies: never mind. Referenced it on the main site. Perry Co. AL huh?
vkn: User not that willing to share info and trying to come forward from 1870 As daviss would say SHEESH lol

karoshi8: That's awesome Daviss.
Seventies: Awesome Daviss
karoshi8: I love Orlando! Though, it is starting to change a bit.
Daviss: He is the son of brother that passed away
Seventies: What about 1850?? Could she have been an FPOC?
vkn: but that schedule is most suspect
Daviss: vkn if not willing to share how are you to know what is correct or feels correct?
vkn: No but question for me is when did she die and was she married to a Holyfield Well Daviss you have prolly heard of the twins by gosh and by golly lol

karoshi8: Yes, I got to talk to them.
karoshi8: And Mrs. Flossie Winburn! Because you had her married name listed!
alt: I hope they (she) were helpful and I know Flossie was glad to hear from a relative. She and her husband, John Gentry, were neighbors when I was 1st married and we knew them fairly well (socially) very nice couple... and then they moved to Sacramento with John's job.

alt: okay, bye for now
