Daviss: ok now folks, we gotta get this ticket together
alt: what types of records will you be looking for at NARA Seventies?
Seventies: I really have my heart set on RG105 and M1907 record subset.
alt: okay Seventies
Daviss: sounds good
Seventies: Trying to get docs on those older generations of the family. Was inspired by the AA track at the Genealogy Event last month.
Daviss: I am working on another blog and hope I will finish it today. I feel a tad lazy
Seventies: Hey doesn't everyone feel lazy after Thanksgiving? I blame the turkey! lol
alt: sounds good Seventies, glad to hear something lit a fire up under ya LOL LOL
Seventies: I would still love, love, love to get all of the docs on African-Americans in Adams and Wilkinson Co. documented and in one space. One of my genealogy dreams.
alt: Seventies, do it ALL while you're young and can still do it.. or at least as much as you can .... it gets rougher with age.
Seventies: didn't Deepak Chopra talk about thinking young. Think young alt
alt: oh, I think young, but the body tells me 'it ain't the case' lol LOL
Seventies: lol lol In other news, still waiting for confirmation of my letter to Welcome Bowman.
alt: my cousin, Shiela (Farmer) Clay and I published all of the vital tecords for AA's (birth, marriage, death) in Champaign Co., Ohio from 1867-1908 and have it in all of the area libraries.
Daviss: wonderful alt!
Seventies: wow. You know what makes me want to do this because everytime I go onto websites for the county records, I NEVER see black folks information posted.
Daviss: hello Selma!
Seventies: Hi Selma Happy belated Thanksgiving. Hope you had a good one.
Selma: Good Monday afternoon atl, Daviss and sevenites
alt: 1867 was when the counties were first required to record births & deaths ..... marriages go back to 1807. Hello Ms Selma
Seventies: Ah. okay. Does the book give some contextual history regarding the record sets?
Selma: Yes, I did seventies hope you had the same..at this point I have had enough of TURKEY.. LOL
Seventies: lol Turkey fatigue huh? lol
Selma: Seventies..I see you had lunch with Khathu
alt: contexual history????
Seventies: Yes I did. I had him and my son running all over Manhattan and Brooklyn. lol
Selma: My mother in law use to make Turkey stew and freeze... folks had turkey FOREVER
Seventies: Yes like a brief description of marriage records for the state, laws requiring documentation etc. etc.
Selma: It is NOT family tradition that I have continued.. LOL
Seventies: lol Yes, I swear the most successful cook book would be entitled What to do with all that leftover turkey after Thanksgiving.. lol
alt: not really Seventies, just names, dates, locations and any other information that might be contained with the record, like the notations for 'race' black, col., C, etc.
Seventies: oh okay.
alt: in some case there are parents names, and birth locations.... very good for those records dating in the mid 1800's... often adds another generation of family to thos records.
Seventies: Well since Selma is here.. Any updates on RG105 record sets? Hoping to glean more information from the M1907 subset. I also want to look into records for AL
Selma: Seventies..I saw an Assus computer on sale in one of the million ads I got for Black Friday..made me think is you
Seventies: Yes I need one badly.
Selma: think of you
Seventies: Okay quick question, has anyone seen FPOCs after emancipation in the RG105 or any other records?
Selma: Sure seventies..
Seventies: If I go into the AL records I will be looking for some of my FPOCs there as well as some of my enslaved family. I haven't been able to come up with anything on those folks as of yet. Anything outside census records. Specifically the Mixons and the Laniers.
alt: Seventies, weren't ALL blacks FPOC after being emancipated by the 13th amendment and the CW?
Seventies: Yes, I'm talking about the FPOCs before Emancipation.
alt: okay , thought you said 'after' emancipation
Selma: It is not only limited to formerly enslaved..
Seventies: I did, I'm talking about those who were freed before the CW, but looking for any additional records AFTER the CW. I would imagine that they may have had a hard time as well. But I can't prove that.
Selma: Remember the Bureau was in charge of stuff..so folks are mentioned as they relate to the activities that are happening in the area in which they contacted the Bureau
alt: 90 % of my maternal lines were FPOC so almost all of my research on them is pre CW & emancipation.
Selma: Labor disputes, court cases Indentures
Seventies: Okay Selma. I'm going to see what record set they have on Dallas Co and Autauga Co, AL Maybe even Perry Co. Well my time is up. Need to move this computer so I can get to my new workspace.
Daviss: Harrison County Texas records are scarce
alt: Seventies, isn't Autauga a neighbor to Mobile? my check there fro FPOC records.... We have Wicker's who were FPOC in that area ca 1845 that came to Ohio ca 1850.
Daviss: take care seventies
Selma: There are only 34 rolls for Alabama of RG 105..
Seventies: No, Autauga is in the center of the state, Mobile is on the Gulf coast.
alt: okay, there were Wicker's in Autauga as FPOC
Seventies: Okay Thanks Selma. I will keep that in mind. Not having much success as I stated looking at the state level to get details.
Daviss: when is your Wash trip seventies
Seventies: alt, Autauga is Autagaville, Prattville and SEVERAL small towns. December 21 - 1 Jan...
alt: okay Seventies, thanks
Seventies: I am already making plans too Daviss...
Daviss: I guess! lol my head is spinning
Seventies: Ok I really have to go... see y'all tomorrow.
alt: bye & good luck
alt: just 'old timers' left LOL LOL Seventies is a 'ray of sunshine' with her enthusiasm
Daviss: yes and I hope she will continue to attend those conferences
alt: and I love to tease her LOL LOL
Selma: We can tell.. LOL
Daviss: lol I think we may have finally found a home for at least 6 months to have our genealogy meetings
alt: wonderful Daviss !!!!
Daviss: we lose to many when we go from place to place
alt: a stable location for meetings is a positive step.
Daviss: never knowing where to meet the prices were too steep for the few members we have
alt: moving around for meetings is one of our problems (AAGGMV), but it is really necessary since we cover a 9 county area. we tried a central location, but members not from that central county complained
Daviss: you guys at least know where you were going to be and could make that adjustment
Khathu: Hello everyone
alt: hello Khathu
Daviss: we did not know until the last min and sometimes would have to cancel hi khathu
alt: that wasn't good Daviss
Daviss: I know How was your lunch with Seventies Khathu?
alt: just looking at my membeships to different groups.. it's renewal time...
Khathu: It was good
Daviss: you are right alt, glad I only have two
alt: can I get a loan? LOL LOL
Daviss: thats why I am glad I only have two, funds to short I would love to join others but until then I have to pick and choose I may get rid of my Tx-La and pick up the group in Houston
Khathu: Just dropping in to say hellp hello have a great day
Daviss: we will take that hello khathu I would love to get more Tx journals
alt: is there a State genealogy society for TX?
vkn: Good howdy to all
Daviss: I dont know that answer per se alt
alt: OGS (Ohio) has 4 qtrly journals and they will all be digital starting in Jan, no more paper unless specifically requested.
Daviss: hello vkn!!
alt: hello vkn
Daviss: I think I will see if Seraph (Sharon) can answer
vkn: and hello daviss alt Selma
