Seventies: Hello Khahtu... Wild! lol

Daviss: hello

alt: Hi Khathu

Seventies: Its like the unruly curl AND its gray.. lol

alt: not yet Daviss, no help in my hunt for the Will

Khathu: Hey Seventies, the lady from AZ sent me several pictures and a funeral program of my great grandfather's first cousin and her family

Seventies: Hey that's great!

Daviss: the only person I know who lives there is E T alt, have you checked with him?

Khathu: Daviss it was Otto Hutchinson's niece who sent me the info

Seventies: Daviss, are any of these folks in your genealogy group?

Daviss: which niece was that khathu?

Khathu: This has been a great week for genealogical research for me

alt: yes I have Daviss,... don't really want to bother a friend

Khathu: Lauren Hutchinson

Daviss: congrats Khathu

Khathu: maybe that is his cousin's daughter

Seventies: And I'm well... lol

Daviss: ok dont know her

alt: yes congrats Khathu

Khathu: I also hit gold at the D.A.R. in locating some family census record for 1890 which listed my gg grandfather Robert Easley.

Daviss: another Congrats khathu!

Khathu: that led me to finally locate his mother in the 1880 Census after looking for over 10 years for her

alt: wow, 1890, that;s a great find Khathu

Daviss: yes it was for 1890 where was this khathu?

Khathu: 1889-1896 to be exact Van zandt County, Texas

alt: 1890 census records are v ery hard and often difficult to locate.

Seventies: I believe that he used a school census alt. Daviss, do any of the counties you research in Texas have school schedules?

alt: okay Seventies, when I hear census I immediately think of federal census records

Daviss: the one in harrison County did not give names

alt: gotta broaden my perspective on census type records

Seventies: ah ok. In Mississippi they are Educable Records. But I thought that MS was the only state that had them.

alt: or at least understand what type of census record the person is talking about

Daviss: counties in Tx are all mixed up..especially mine

Seventies: yes seems as if there isn't much consistency. And records sometimes get destroyed.

alt: kinda like the marrige thing...difference between an application, record, license,

Seventies: right. I used the MS Educable census to help track down descendants. Most of them are still alive today.

alt: really!!!!!!

Seventies: Yes. My mom, my aunts and uncles, a cousin who lives just down the road from us. I'm talking about people who are in their 60's

alt: what years does this record set cover?

Seventies: From the late 1800's to the 1950's

alt: I don't know if Ohio has an equivalent type of record set

Seventies: But the years are sporadic...

alt: wow, that's a great resource.....what types of data are included?

Khathu: i'm back

Daviss: Harrison County has very few records that help me..I have had more success in Grimes Co

alt: welcome

Seventies: Names of parents, where they live, age parent/guardian

alt: that's good stuff Seventies

Seventies: The MS set goes to 1957 alt http://tinyurl.com/d529e8a

Khathu: The school records are called family census which listed all school age children in the household as well as the parents name

Daviss: Do you happen to know what counties have the family census khathu?

alt: okay, I'll check for a cousin whose mother is/was from Rankin Co.

Khathu: they started keeping the records in the late 1850s

Seventies: In Mississippi its called Enumeration of Educable Children Angela mentioned a few years ago here, and I was glad to see that it is an online resource.

Khathu: most of the counties should have them a lot of them are not microfilmed and most counties only have them beginning in the 1920s

alt: I had heard of the record set, but didn't realize it extended into the mid-1900's. lesson learned for today LOL LOL

Seventies: One of the counties I am looking for these school census records is maintained in Louisiana. And family search doesn't have this information online. Hi Selma

Daviss: khathu when you go back can you see if harison county is included

alt: hello grandma ....great photo of you & the lil darlin's

Selma: Good afternoon alt, daviss, khathu and seventies Thank you alt..

Daviss: hi Sel

Khathu: check out this site to see which county has them - www.tsl.state.us/arc/local/index.html Daviss, you will probably have to contact the county clerk's office to see where they are located since I do not see them as being microfilmed

alt: I gotta put up a photo of great-grandchild # 10 ... born 8 Dec 2012, a girl

Daviss: thx khathu

Seventies: It really freaks me out that you're a great grandfather, alt. 70's is kind of young. IMO. My dad is your age.

Khathu: the records are also called scholastic census but they were a part of the office of the superintendent of schools

Seventies: And we are LONG way from having any great grands or grands... lol

alt: well, I'm at the long end of the 70's Seventies .....only 1 more year before I hit 80.
