Khathu: If you want the excitement invite a lot people over to your house.... lol

Khathu: It was a mess trying to leave the National Mall. It took us 90 minutes to get to the metro station and that was after we waited 90 for the crowd to die down.

alt: your being there (excitement) will hit you in the future Khathu ... 50 years later I'm still excited about the '63 March on Washington.

Khathu: I was more excited about the Million Man March

Khathu: It definitely wasn't as bad as 2009 I am glad that I did it. It was a great experience I can't wait until tonight. I will eat some gumbo for dinner

alt: Khathu, for your FHC trips, do you check the LDS catalog on FamilySearch to see what they have on your counties of research before going?

Khathu: I ordered the microfilm alt which arrived last week. But the answer to your question is yes.

alt: and/or ask them to get what you might wnat before your next visit.

Khathu: I have about 15 more microfilm that I need to order. I am trying to order 3 per month

alt: ah so, good practice Khathu

Khathu: now that number may change determining on what i locate (or don't locate)

alt: with the 'right' microfilm it's almost like being there in person

Khathu: depending not determining I need to locate a researcher in Smith County, Texas to pull some court records for me.

alt: Yesterday in Piqua, Ohio I met Sharyn Mitchell one of the founders of the AAGGKY which started up a couple of years ago... A very dynamic young lady.

Daviss: So her group is doing good alt?

alt: very good Daviss, they have some wonderful programs, are active on Yahoo, Facebook & also have a public website.

Daviss: thats good...I am not so sure about our group...I am in hopes they will pick up I really don't want to end up leaving for a 2nd time

Selma: I saw that Lisa Lee - Lisa Landrum connection this morning

alt: not sure, but Lisa Lee posted about their match on FaceBook

Daviss: oh ok

Seventies: I saw that too alt. Very nice. they are 4-5th cousin.

alt: and Selma I match with Lisa Landrum at about the 3rd to 5th cousin range on 23andme... she also has matched me on FTDNA & AncestryDNA, so I guess we really do have a common ancestor somehwere in the background

Selma: Wow... Does that mean you connect with Lisa L somwhere down the road?

alt: not sure about Lisa Lee Selma.. we don't show as matches ..... yet LOL

Daviss: when did they load new peeps alt

alt: but we both have ancestors who were in Canada at the same time during the late 1700's, so maybe LOL

Selma: Very, very interesting Folks..have to run

Daviss: I need to go lay down again...I am shivering

Selma: Daviss..do we have chat tonite. Hope I remember

Daviss: I am sure we do I always go in

Selma: ok see you this evening Bye all

alt: I would think Lisa Lee and I do have a connection.... one of my ancestors was 'given' to one of her ancestors in Canada about 1790 by a Matthew Elliott who was a big time British & Indian Agent in Ontario, Canada

Daviss: bye Selma thats something alt
