alt: I found Probate records on the Dickens family in NC that I write about on my TP site..... 92 pages of images of K.H. Dicken's estate records.

Seventies: I hadn't looked at the new records recently alt...

Daviss: I just wish I could break a wall down so I can utilize some of those other records

Selma: Did it break down any walls for you alt..

alt: and similar to Khathu he names his "children" by his enslaved mistress and leaves them property as well as his mistress. no walls, but a lot of 'inside' information Selma.

Seventies: I see they are updating the California records quite a bit...

Selma: What year did this happen alt?

alt: the papers range from 1881 to 1887 Selma

Seventies: The marriages for IN are also updated..

Selma: after emancipation

alt: yes, that is good news for me too Seventies

Seventies: ooh something I may be able to USE... Louisiana wills.. Also a NY state census for 1855. Interested in seeing how many FPOCs lived in my area...

alt: Yes Selma... he died in 1881, but I now have a trail from the 1850 Census, thru the 1850-1860 slave schedules thru the 1880 census and beyond... along with these court records, a couple of marriage records, a DC and a copy of a few pages from a family bible.

Selma: That is great alt..

Daviss: sure is...

Seventies: Now I'm going to have to take a look at these records.. lol

alt: good luck Seventies

Daviss: tomorrow hopefully I will feel good enough to get to the Memorial service for a long overdue Buffalo Soldier Ambrose Skinner

alt: khathu, give our regards to Barack, Michelle & the girls LOL LOL

Selma: LOL don't forget Bo

alt: okay khathu, knowing you can give some 'great' input!!!

Daviss: ok taking off, you all have a nice day

alt: hmmmn Daviss gets to feeling better and then she cuts out on us LOL LOL LOL

Selma: He must be losing the connection

alt: yep, bumpy road with his phone Selma, I hope those 'browsable' records on family search become indexed soon... I've gotten lazy & spoiled by indexed online searches.

Selma: Alt..I am very disappointed to hear you say (type) that..

alt: what, that I'm spoiled & lazy?

Selma: LOL I love get a much richer picture of what is going on in the communities in which these folks lived

alt: family search has added a great new feature.... where you can search their collections by the 'type' of record ... vital, probate, land, census, etc. Selma, I agree you do, cause you're looking at the records and not just for someone/something in particular.

Selma: Well folks..think it is time for me to run.. Have a great day..bye

alt: bye Poof!!! Lol
