Daviss: ok I sent Shirley a msg asking about her Alfords...Hoping she will answer soon

di: ok i googled her posts on afrigeneas that is where i saw her pictures and posts

Daviss: ahhhh ok

di: when i first started i followed a whole line of alfords to my dismay after a lot of digging i found there was no relation, and my aunt was sure to tell me that "them ALFORDS down the road" was no kin to us

Daviss: hahahahaha thats what I have been hearing re the Taylors living next door to each other but they sure look alike Go figure I wish I could get one of them to take a dna test lol lol di did you get in on the 23&Me free test

di: nope they did it again?

Daviss: not yet but I am keeping my eyes open they have had a couple of specials though

di: i still have my 5 kits from the last time. i asked my family to do and they said yeah.....but never did it and before i knew it the deadline passed and i didnt even get in mines!

Daviss: whoa, do you have them in your possession?

di: yeah i want to do it with my uncle while he is still around and fully aware so we can talk about the results. i think he would love it yes i have the kits

Daviss: Someone I know recently sent hers in and it was accepted

di: what!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Daviss: yes!!! i even sent out a call to see if someone wanted to gift theres

di: i am sending mine in this weekend screw my family who did not commit. and i am going to see my uncle on the 11th.. yes sir! we will be sending in those kits! crossing our legs, eyes, fingers and toes!

Daviss: yes!!

di: what do you mean gift it?

Daviss: well some ordered kits and did not use them.. They can give them to someone else who would want them They can contact 23 and have the number changed to them

di: besides this was only for black people. they know we dont be on time! lol. well do you know anyone who is still looking for a kit?

Daviss: oh yes, I do lol I think that the problem was that people who were not supposed to get in on it overwhelmed them and they had to weed them out that took eons of time I dont think that they got the 10,000 AA's they wanted because of this close to 8000 I think

di: i put them up and if i can remember where the other two are I will most certainly gift them. just got excited. just recently i was connected with my grandfathers brother who is in his late 80s (lives 4 blocks from me!) i can get him and me and my moms maternal uncle to do it and that is 3 kits which means i should still have 2 kits left to gift! --and i can see if my mom and dad are going to do theirs (dad was skeptical) they have two with them in sc! ok well me and you have to get in before the other 2000!!!! brb today was report card day at the school. gotta be there at 1:30

Daviss: ok take care and I will chat later happy hunting di
