Daviss: hi ther alt!!
alt: hey partner, thanks for the link.... did you get my email which I hope explains the connection with Mr. Wilson.
Daviss: No not yet alt, I was just in my email did you send this morn
alt: it is in my sent mail file... Yes, I sent it this morning.
Daviss: ok let me do a quick peep again
alt: it is under your subject of "Tree"
Daviss: ok got it!!! lol
alt: you need another sip of coffee? LOL
Daviss: wow alt thats great lol lol are you going to email him?
alt: I'm waiting for him to respond to my last contact..... I don't think he is really "into' genealogy.... I think he is one of those 'drive-by genealogist' that we've been talking about. LOL How does he connect to your ancestry?
Daviss: Its a low connect you know like 5-8 alt do you have any fants or faunts
alt: okay.... I think he doesn't show i mine because his 'tree' doesn't connect to all of the people he has listed .. and then some are missing, like he doesn't have the Adams/Crosswhite connection which is one way that we relate to each other. are those surnames fants or faunts?
Daviss: thats why I wonder if some folks just add names to their tree that sounds like they are related lol Yes surname heyyy Selma!!! How are you doing
alt: I believe that is the situation for some of those trees ... example... he has Lewis Adams & Sibbah Mastison just 'hanging' out there .... he also has a Giles & Susan Clay from Piqua, Ohio juts 'hangin' out there.
Selma: Afternoon alt and daviss
alt: Hi Selma, how you doing today?
Selma: Doing Ok ..nurse just left, vitals are good.. LOL
Daviss: Thats wonderful Selma!!
alt: Happy and glad to hear you have 'good vitals' LOL LOL
alt: Vicky just helped me break to code on an AncestryDNA connection Selma. And this guy is a connection to her ancestry LOL LOL
Selma: Wow..so you and Daviss are connected?
Daviss: lol I wish Selma
alt: the guy doesn't even show up as a connection to me
Selma: "hanging out there" like low lying fruit alt
alt: he has a 'listing' on Ancestry that connects to some of my folks, but his 'tree' doesn't reflect the connection.
Daviss: alt saw how nice I was in Indiana so I think he needs to claim me as kin lol lol
alt: yep Vicky and don't you forget it either!!!!! LOL
Daviss: lol lol I am wondering if this guy works out of the country alt?
alt: Selma, I was telling Daviss that I think this guy is one of those 'drive-by' genealogist who is into collecting names and really doesn't follow up on how they may connect/relate to each other. His email response to me indicated he worked/traveled outside of the U.S. and his address also indicates he is in the DC beltway and a Government employee
Daviss: Ahhhh I see...mabe that is the reason he is slow to respond..mabe a new email will trigger him to respond alt
alt: you're trying to get me to do the follow-up ... sneaky, sneaky LOL LOL
Daviss: lol lol off topic, I bought 5 lottery tickets (scratch) no winners so I threw them away
alt: I was interviewed last nigh, along with a cousin for a newspaper article on our Adams Family Reunion plans for this upcoming Labor Day weekend.
Selma: Afternoon Khathu
Daviss: when I went to buy more of the same kind the guy behind the counter told me "dont forget to look on the back for another game"
alt: Hello Khathu
Selma: So you went home and dug through the trash right?
Daviss: You should have seen me lol
alt: and found a winner!!!!!! ?????
Daviss: found them all and one was a 10 dollar winner
Daviss: sheesh no telling how many I have messed up on lol
alt: you were throwing money away LOL LOL
Daviss: Hi khathu!! Now I also send in those 2nd chance tickets also.. I never have before
alt: when you hit it big ... remember dear po' old alt LOL LOL
Daviss: I know po alt lol notice I left off "old"
Daviss: hahahahahaha I wonder if we will be able to get the newspaper article online when it comes out alt?
alt: tell us what's up with you Khathu
Khathu: nothing much on this end
alt: probably Daviss, I'll send you the newspaper link when it comes out
alt: Khathu, give us an idea of the DAR library, their holdings and the staff.
Daviss: Dont forget the radio blog tonight re the Brown Babies from Germany
alt: right Daviss
Selma: Hope I can stay awake daviss
Daviss: I hope so too Selma, It should be a goodie
Khathu: The library has books from genealogical society from through the country
alt: Selma, has your genealogy group ever had a discussion on genealogy terminolgy and how folks are related genealogically and/or genetically?
Khathu: In addition, they have general resource books and speciality books pertaining to race, regions, military, religion, etc. The library covers three floors
Selma: General discussions alt..we pass out a chart Was the staff helpful khathu?
Daviss: sounds good khathu Are the sections in States and then counties khathu?

Seventies: Don't know. Probably laying in state somewhere.
Daviss: hasn't that been about a month
Seventies: no not quite yet, maybe a week or so.
Daviss: man, it seems longer than that
Seventies: When someone like him dies, they try to arrange a big funeral... he could be sitting in an ice box somewhere. lol

Daviss: probably not
Seventies: OK later Daviss!
