Daviss: hi there

Daviss: Tyler picked the 5 and the PB lol

Seventies: alright Tyler boo!

Daviss: four dollars lol

Seventies: alt won the million dollar lotto. lol

alt: I didn't say that either Seventies :p

Daviss: hehehehehehee

Seventies: ;) That was the wildest lotto I've ever seen. Jumped up 125 million in two days. But hey, if they are giving 40 mil, I'll take it:) Ok folks, so I'm looking over the census records trying to establish a death year for Anthony Brown and Frank Brown of Adams Co. MS. Looks like Nancy Miles/Myles was their mother. Still trying to connect Dinah and the two men together as siblings. they always lived in close proximity to each other up to about 1910-1920

Daviss: vkn, did you see the post I answered re muhammed?

alt: I spent $10.00 6.00 on the powerball & 4.00 on Ohio scratch off tickets.... won $50.00 on the scratch off & zip/nada on the powerball.

Seventies: Yeah I can see that happening.

Daviss: good alt, I like those scratchers

Seventies: I'm curious if Frank or Anthony either served in the USCT.

Daviss: the most I have scratched on one ticket was $125.oo

alt: won just enough to take Anita out for a post T-Day & pre-Anniversary snack. LOL

Seventies: Okay I am going to take a TV/lunch break... I'll be back by 1, please don't shut down the chat room... lol

Daviss: friend of mine scratched $7,770

vkn: No but I will look Daviss

alt: Wow Daviss!!!!! have you checked the CWSS database for their names Seventies?

Daviss: I just asked what info he had already ......names, years reply yet

vkn: ahhhhhhhh he not talking lol

Daviss: I know, it does not make sense to not relay what you already have IF you have anything at all

vkn: seventies did you get the notification I sent re the funeral record

Daviss: seventies went to get lunch vkn

vkn: oops ok I am trying to get up to speed on Twitter

Daviss: I was just thinking if you dont say what you have and everyone contributes what they find for you, all the work is done lol makes me wonder..IJS

vkn: daviss did you find Nita suspect or is that just me?

alt: I admire y'all in your reponses to posters who ask for help, but present little information & sketchy query's as to what they are loooking/asking for.

Daviss: :o vkn.....

vkn: and alt some of the real sketchy is apt to be a robot

alt: you guys and AfriGeneas still have that 'personal' touch that most Forums no longer have.

Daviss: alt, some of these folks like the one I just mentioned may even be getting pd. How can you say you are helping all these people at once with no info??

vkn: yes alt you just can't hardly get that any more

alt: I heard a great term for those types of genealogist (?) ... called them 'drive-by' genealogist, they hit & miss, see them once and then they are gone.

Daviss: I have a keen nose sometimes I think

alt: I never thought of that aspect Daviss, hmmmn

Daviss: some I think gear up around reunion time alt

vkn: lol hit and run lol

alt: yep vkn 'hit & run'

vkn: also snatch and grab lol

alt: yep

vkn: BUT the louverture stories are so rewarding that the others matter not

Daviss: they become satisfied with one or two generations and thats it. Usually grandpa

alt: yeah Daviss, you never know how much help you give satisfies their "itch".

Daviss: You have to have something special in you to did further and its not just being nosey either did = dig

alt: my grumpy approach the last year or so has been to refer them to a website or a resource, but not do any 'searching' for them. right Daviss, their query really has to pique my interest to do any digging and then to respond to them. by t hen htat's just grumpy old alt LOL LOL

Daviss: well look at that one post asking if anyone had a number for a cemetery. he had the name and place. Well why did I have to do a google

alt: but then that's just grumpy old alt that's what I'm talking about Daviss

Daviss: He could have done that himself..but one day soon I will start saying, did you google it lol sheesh!

Seventies: Hey thanks for sharing alt, I wanted to see what you had before I left. That's interesting. This is on the father's side. Aren't the Cherokee claiming him as a part of the Tribe?? lol I find that incredibly funny.
