Selma: Actually I am surprised there is no Indoor Water Park where you are vicky

Seventies Soulchild: I had been thinking about getting them horseback riding lessons western style so they can ride on their own next year.

vicky: yes it gets so hot here selma but if you think about it folks here sometimes wear shorts year round

Seventies Soulchild: That would be great if you all could get a Great Wolf Lodge there...

Selma: Whats up Professor Dru?

vicky: mt'ing oh, I got a call from a cousin last night who informed me that her mother told her that my father had married besides the ones we knew about She stated that she had met her and this lady was about 7 months pregnant so there may be another living child

Selma: How many times did you know him to be married?

vicky: she could not remember the girls name but that her father was in some capacity at PraireView College in Waller County three times

Selma: So now it is possibly 4

vicky: I just met my of my brothers when I went to Atlanta last week

Professordru: I was just choking on a corn chip. I'm okay now. OK

vicky: yes Selma. It kind of through me for a loop but it was a good loop lol

Selma: Glad to hear you are OK

Professordru: gotta go now.

vicky: good professor dru.. oops good she is ok

alt: vicky, I found out about a marrige my father had that I wasn't aware of when I looked at the the marriage record for what I thought was his 'first' wife.

vicky: I spent well up into the night on Ancestry looking for dads name in the Tx births I just dont understand all thos secret #@$@

Seventies Soulchild: Oh wow... any siblings alt?

vicky: were there children alt

alt: my father died when I was 11 so his past liefe was all foriegn to me until I stared doing his family genealogy.

vicky: I see

Selma: BRB

vicky: I met my fathers 2nd wife in Atlanta also

Seventies Soulchild: wow your dad was married a couple times vicky?

vicky: seems like four Seventies

Seventies Soulchild: WOW!

alt: not by his 1st or 2nd wife, but he had a child before his 1st marriage when he impreganted a young lady... they were both 14 y/o can you belive that.

Seventies Soulchild: yes.

vicky: yes alt even back in tha day

Seventies Soulchild: kids are curious . . . :) I haven't really researched this, but my mom says that my ggrandfather Will was married before he married my ggrandmother Alice

vkn: Howdy yall

vicky: so does that mean the older we get and we revert back to childhood we get curious lol lol

alt: my 1/2 brother was born in 1908... I didn't arrive until 1934, so there was a lot of living between those two year by my father that I had no idea of .

Seventies Soulchild: Which makes sense because he was 30 when he married my ggrandmother.

alt: hello vkn

vicky: hello there vkn

Seventies Soulchild: Hello vkn Alt your brother is old enough to be your father! wow!

vicky: did you get to meet him alt, your 1/2

vkn: I need yalls help to decide new text logo. Will bring to chat tonight

Seventies Soulchild: It happens though...

vicky: ok vkn

alt: yep Seventies Soulchild, I met him at my father's funeral wehn I was 11 y/o.. met his sons who was my age at that time.

vkn: Beeen missing you seventies

Seventies Soulchild: aww thanks vkn

vkn: Trying to learn to tweet lol

Seventies Soulchild: Hello freeaainnc

vicky: in and out

alt: just saw his younger son (my nephew) last week at a reunion in Indiana.

vkn: Alt I have some exciting news for what the future of genealogy hold

vicky: hello freeaainnc

freeaainnc: kicked myself out! LOL

alt: Hello vkn

Seventies Soulchild: lol me too

alt: hare vkn?

freeaainnc: hello all )

alt: care to share vkn?

vkn: but not in our lifetime The term is geo referenced data alt

alt: technology be's too much for me vkn... I'm hanging in the 'slow' lane LOL

vicky: me too alt

vkn: You can add world in front of wide free

alt: interesting tho'... some of my closest DNA matches are in australia... maybe one day LOL

freeaainnc: I have a question - how do you prove a marriage (about 1803) when no marriage bond exists and you don't know the religion/church?

alt: you probably 'don't' prove it freeaainnc


freeaainnc: well, to prove it well enough for a society like DAR I know she'll have to do it in a roundabout way, but everything I think of is leading nowhere

Selma: Free I transcribed the births from Alston..think I found one of the people in 1870

freeaainnc: Selma great! that is cool

alt: you have descendants from that 'union' freeaainnc ?

freeaainnc: not me trying to help another researcher here

alt: no, not you, but who ever is looking for the connection freeaainnc

freeaainnc: she hasn't listed them so I mean I'm sure she does, but I don't know who

Selma: Is it possible that these folks could be identified in a will or deed or some document that identies them as wife or or husband of ... free

alt: my thought too Selma

freeaainnc: Selma that is my thought too

Seventies Soulchild: okay everyone, I'm heading back to my vacation now... lol I'll try to get on later tonight once the kids are out 'socializing' :)

freeaainnc: bye SS

Selma: I see that in the VGS and NGS journal.. Indirect documentaiton

freeaainnc: right, exactly the county where they probably got married has no surviving marriage bonds

vkn: There is lots of indirect in Black research

alt: vkn, an Embry cousin posted a website that has online 'colored marriages' for Talladega Co., AL.

Selma: Do they have wills or deeds.. Court cases..folks are always in court

vkn: link please alt

freeaainnc: I've seen mention of deeds, but they don't mention either the husband or wife, but they may in TN

alt: looking for it now vkn

Selma: Man Will ... she receives her dower 1/3 share

freeaainnc: she died first and that is part of the problem too

Selma: Her parents die live her something...she is identified in their will

vkn: thanx alt. Talladega is not a burned county so that link will be excellent to have

Selma: She's dead, they identify her children as heirs...etc...

freeaainnc: right, by her married name, but that doesn't necessarily "prove" who she married other than the last name maybe, b/c he was alive so their might not have been a will this is a tricky one LOL their=there


Selma: I see this scenario in the journals all the time..tell her to read a couple to get ideas...

vkn: Thanx a whole bunch alt

freeaainnc: what journals?

vicky: alt no good

Selma: Ngs, VGS.......etc

freeaainnc: I mean can you think of anything in particular?

Selma: Umm..let me see

alt: can't paste it correctly vicky .. still trying

vicky: ok

freeaainnc: hi AY

alt: arriages/

vicky: hello AYWalton

alt: there you go... make sure you get the end of the link 'arriages/"

AYWalton: greetings, everyone!

alt: hello AYWalton

AYWalton: howdy alt, freeaainnc, Ms. Selma, Ms. Vicky Greetings vkn!!!!

Selma: Hi AY

freeaainnc: I just copy/pasted the addy and removed the space in "marriages"

alt: did it work freeaainnc ?

freeaainnc: yep

alt: okay, thanks... it is Macon & Talladega county colored marriages

freeaainnc: actually, I copied/pasted in the browser, removed the space and then where the ... were replaced with a "c" and it automatically reloaded to the right address

vicky: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb. ... om/~janderse/marriages/

alt: yeah that's it vicky

freeaainnc: yep, and where the . ... om is, replace that either with a c or type in ancestry.c

vicky: sheesh page went down

freeaainnc: either way works

alt: I guess you could also google macon & talladega county county marriages... anyway it is on rootsweb

freeaainnc: went down?

vicky: on mine free

freeaainnc: ok

vicky: said it was unable to load

Selma: Free..gonna have to

freeaainnc: selma gonna have to what?

vicky: anyway, I'll get it lol

Selma: Wait......I am on the pholne

vicky: thanks alt

alt: vkn, I was saying earlier.. great posting by Write Away on her interview with David Paterson on Slave Research.

AYWalton: alt, vkn's screen is frozen. she can't reply on the screen at the moment.

alt: okay, thanks AYWalton

AYWalton: the system does appear to be slow, somewhat.

vicky: I hate to leave good company but I gotta go buy a box of wheat speghetti for din din

freeaainnc: ok, bye Vicky

vicky: before the temp changes another degree later folks

freeaainnc: lol

alt: the interview spoke to only GA and Upshur (sp) county, but the methodology works for anywhere.

Selma: Ok free sorry...

freeaainnc: alt for that that posting on David Paterson interview? np Selma :}

alt: yes free, on the WRite Away Forum on AfriGeneas.

freeaainnc: ok

Selma: I wil have to look for an article based on your scenario...however they have stuff like......Finding Parents of lizzie Evans, wife of George C. DAvis of Greene County, GA

freeaainnc: ok

AYWalton: Well I just popped in a for a few moments---going back to updating my blog. Am writing about finding Uncle Sephus.

Selma: A Maiden Name for Mercy: Indirect Evidence of the Wife of Benjamin Burgess of Dartmouth, Mass June 2007 NGS Quarterly

AYWalton: have a great day everyone!

freeaainnc: ok!

alt: I'm outa here too

Selma: Does this person come into your library free

freeaainnc: appreciate your help selma no, she's emailed questions

Selma: OK... I will look and see..but these ar ethe kinds of articles she should be looking at..

freeaainnc: she was originally looking for a lookup in our marriage bond index that we have and then explained the situation

Selma: She probably will have to go a round about way

freeaainnc: yep, agree

Selma: Do these folks have siblings

freeaainnc: She is looking in Sampson Co. and their marriage bonds were burned I assume so, but I don't know

Selma: The couple stays in Sampson or do they move

freeaainnc: move to TN along with her father and his family, but records here don't prove relationship to her father, if they did, it would be much easier b/c there is a record of a deed that he gave land to his son in law (her husband), but doesn't show relationship to the daughter

Selma: Ummm..she definitley needs to look at some of these articles...

freeaainnc: lol yep

Selma: LOL...

freeaainnc: I think also, she needs to focus in TN records now since there is no marriage bond and I've gone WAY over what I would normally do and even checked records in the archives for her and nothing shows definite connection between the 3 of them I mean

Selma: Yep..she needs to mine the TN records

freeaainnc: (her, her father, her husband)

Selma: Ok gotta run ..good luck

freeaainnc: ok, bye and thanks

Chatters: 3rdthawkins, alt, AYWalton, Khathu, Seventies Soulchild, Spivey, vicky, vkn

vicky: hello Spivey

Spivey: Hello vicky! I checked on those HTML lessons I was telling you about, and the owner of the club says she didn't keep them because she found out the person who gave them may have plagiarized them from some one else.

vicky: oooh

Spivey: Sorry, they were so good too! Walked you through every step of the way.

vicky: no problem Spivey, I appreciate you checking

Spivey: Yes, it turned out this person had plagiarized poetry and presented as her own in the club, so the owner got rid of everything she did.

vicky: some people just dont get it do they

Spivey: Funny, but the club owner found out by accident doing Native American research. Stumbled on these poems. It just doesn't make sense to take something from the Internet.

vicky: Spivey alt was wondering if you had read the interview done with David Patterson on the forum

Spivey: No, I didn't vicky. Do you have the URL?

vicky:;md=read;id=23267 Spivey in Ga was mentioned

Spivey: Thanks. Mind if I look now?

vicky: oh go ahead its just you and I lol speaking of the man.... Hi alt!

alt: hey Spivey & vicky

Spivey: Okay. While I'm busy looking at it, I want you to know that last night's lesson in GenealogyWise was The War of 1812. We got some good information there. I think I saw Alt there.

vicky: thats good

Spivey: Hey alt! Speak of the devil. Allen McClain was there too!

vicky: oh really.. I have not seen him in awhile rather in eons

Spivey: He usually attends the Monday night sessions there. They are pretty good.

alt: who's the devil LOL

Spivey: ONE guess, alt! Not moi or vicky, so must be the third person in this room. ROTFL.

vicky: I am innocent

Spivey: You usually are, vicky.

alt: okay, guess I'm the devil then

vicky: lol lol

Spivey: I actually admire your tact vicky. alt is tactful too, but a bit more forceful.

alt: me tactful... I try not to be, it's too cumbersome LOL

vicky: cause he is a LaForce lol

Spivey: Did I see you at GenealogyWise last night? There was someone there named Art Thomas.

alt: not this one Spivey

Khathu: evening everyone

Spivey: He is a force vicky! lol

alt: hello Khathu ,

vicky: hello khathu!

Khathu: vicky - i have someone working on your request

Spivey: Good evening Khathu!

vicky: thank you so much khathu

Khathu: also did you know that there was an 1887 Texas State Census? Unfortunately it only gives statistical information

vicky: no I was not aware of that khathu

Spivey: The subject last night was The War of 1812 alt. Where to look for records which I understand were kept very well because of the lack of funding to pay the soldiers. Seems they had to keep records and issue vouchers so the soldiers could get paid later.

Khathu: i was reading about it in the Southwestern Historical Journal today

vicky: Is that one of the ones that is online ZKhathu lol khathu

Spivey: Oh, them fingers not cooperating tonight vicky?

vicky: one finger

Spivey: Ah, then that one finger does very well. I use all ten.

vicky: I use one on each hand lol

Spivey: Except on a laptop or cell phone. The keys are too small for me on those. That is great. You're so fast I wouldn't have known that.

Khathu: yes vicky

vicky: ok thanks. I do have that link bookmarked

Khathu: i made a list of all of the articles related to AA i'll mail you the list tomorrow

vicky: wow thanks khathu

Khathu: i went through a 100 years of journal articles

vicky: now are those all the journals or are there more hidden on library shelves you are amazing khathu

Khathu: from 1890s-1989 i think 1998

alt: I think he's serious about this 'stuff' vicky LOL

vicky: I know alt, thats why I admire him so

alt: Khathu,on the Writers Forum there is a great interview of David Paterson on slave research... it is specific to GA and his area, but the methodology is solid for any State.

Khathu: i will check it out

Spivey: Oh, vicky, does David Paterson respond to requests? I didn't know there was a SPIVEY in the narrative.

alt: Hello AYWalton

vicky: she hasnt come in yet alt

Khathu: you admire me? i am just a student

alt: Oops, jumped the gun .. again LOL

vicky: yes I do khathu

Spivey: That doesn't mean you don't have qualities that can be admired Khathu. We are all students in the broad sense of the word.

vicky: Patterson is the Forum host Spivey so I am sure he will answer your post Did you read the interview yet Spivey

Spivey: Reading it now, vicky.

Spivey: I have to consult a map, vicky. My Spivey ancestors came from Schley County as far back as I have been able to research.

AYWalton: Vicky I just update my blog, this evening. will this be a TV or a radio program?

AYWalton: oh yes, the researcher---that was horrible! and it was planned apparently.

Spivey: What happened AYWalton?

AYWalton: they have arrested two folks---and they had to be from the family. a researcher was killed in Baltimore stabbed apparently. Two "folks" were arrested---a man and a woman. sad unnecessary killing in the city. senseless.

Spivey: Part of a series of killings AYWalton? I thought vkn mentioned a serial killer?

vkn: 4 nurses females

AYWalton: yes, I did not associate it with a series of killings. But Baltimore City does have a high homicide rate. so sad.

vkn: student was UPS employee is now arrested. people killed are mother daughter pairs

Spivey: 4 nurses have been killed? That is sad and senseless. What kind of reseracher was the latest victim?

Seventies Soulchild: oooppppsss. . . .

alt: that's gonna happen Khathu ....

Khathu: the family member called me and told me....i thought it was funny the famil member was upset and i just laughed

AYWalton: you should be upset as well, khathu. I hope the cousin has pointed out what happened to the perpetrator.

alt: it will come back to haunt him/her when the questions start coming up about the information contained in the genealogy and they can't answer then.

Seventies Soulchild: Yep.

AYWalton: quite true.

alt: I've seen it happen

Khathu: it happens the very fact that i have the info on the internet

alt: and then it will be.. Well, Khathu said... LOL

Khathu: exactly

AYWalton: put a by-line on your site, khathu.

vkn: Google has changed the whole of copyright..... new interpretations are coming fast and furious..... Much dispute in the courts now

AYWalton: I can imagine, VKN.

vkn: Much to do with format

AYWalton: that's interesting.

Seventies Soulchild: agree interesting

vkn: authors are saying they gave publishers "print" rights not "digital" rights

AYWalton: hmm........very interesting.

Seventies Soulchild: I wonder how that is going to affect blogs? Since Google own blogger.

AYWalton: well digital rights that is a new term and a concept to think about. and Wordpress is out there, and so is Typepad and other free blog sites.

alt: I think the concept now is that you only your work as you 'present' it... anyone can take what you have and reformat exactly what you have and they aren't infringing on your material...

vkn: yes it is indeed Angela and Seventies I see it being years before a decision is made BUT lots of cases

alt: only 'own' your work

Spivey: Khathu, one remedy that may help you is to disable right click on your website [assuming it is not Ancestry]. That way, people can't copy your information en masse, and are loathe to type it all. I had to do that to my website because of my cousin taking information from it en masse and setting up his own tree with it.

Seventies Soulchild: But wouldn't your work have to be referenced?

Khathu: ok

alt: if anyone wants to 'copy' my Tribal Pages website they're welcome to it... All 21K folks with varying bits of information, 748 photos, and 10 stories.

Spivey: WB 3rdthawkins.

3rdthawkins: oops, knocked the cord out

Seventies Soulchild: No thanks. . . lol

vkn: AYW I spoke at LunchBunch about the future of a new concept [to me] of locality as common denominator

Spivey: That's a lot more than I have, alt. Besides, he only took the bits that were the ADAMS and SPIVEY family branches.

AYWalton: sort of a way of approaching the issue of "cluster" genealogy, vkn?

Spivey: Geez, 3rdthawkins!

AYWalton: but making it much broader?

vkn: yes on a geo basis ayw

alt: and even tha is difficult Spivey... each 'branch' of a descending tree is different. I did a graphic for the THOMAS branch of the ADAMS family tree and it is different from every other person's tree because of the 'direct' linkages. example ....

Spivey: He had just started alt, when I discovered his tree. I disabled right click and he had his sister-in-law contact me about sharing information. I said I would share if she did, she refused. I didn't know at the time it was his sister-in-law, found out from his sister that he put the sister-in-law up to it. He will stop at nothing, it seems! ROTFL.

vkn: Oh yes ayw. Imagine looking for Joe Jones in 1930 at a certain street address and getting results for all possible data for that Joe Jones including the census

alt: that will be 'amazing' vkn... how is everythiing on the 'Net or elsewhere 'attributed' to that address?

Spivey: Ya know, alt, I have Isaac and Lewis and others in my tree, but they were KELSEYs who married into the ADAMS family.

3rdthawkins: speaking of street address in census, I'm trying to figure out a easier why to search for a street in census

vicky: I wonder how that would work for Rural Routes vkn

Spivey: Did you use a program to do the graphic, alt?

alt: Power Point Spivey

AYWalton: how does that disable thing work?

Spivey: Oh. I don't use Power Point. Never have so don't know what it's all about alt.

vicky: mabe call the assessors office in that area 3rd other than that I dont know.. so many of the pages I have seen dont even list the street on the side of the census

3rdthawkins: perhaps vicky

vicky: just the number pf the streets pf = of


3rdthawkins: I tried browsing on HQ but census are so mixed up by enumeration

Seventies Soulchild: I didn't think they did vicky.. only on the city directories or on draft cards.

Spivey: Go to this page, AYWalton. That shows you the result of the coding you can put on your page.

3rdthawkins: I'm searching in Queens New York (Jamaica)

vicky: I have seen the names on some seventies

Spivey: Hey, my neck of the woods 3rdthawkins!

AYWalton: ok I shall take a look.

Seventies Soulchild: However, it seems like they would list the locale on the top of the census records.

alt: what's the guy's name that has the website where you can search census records by enumeration district? he presnts at all of the major Conferences.... His system does what you're looking for 3rdthawkins

Spivey: I live just around the corner, so to speak, from Jamaica, Queens, New York.

Seventies Soulchild: Ok I'm tired, long day. . .

AYWalton: ahhh so it prevents the right click copy feature.

vicky: not sure I have heard of that site alt

Spivey: You calling it a night Seventies Soulchild?

vicky: nite nite seventies

Seventies Soulchild: Have a good night all. Yes indeed Spivey... going to bed.

Spivey: If so, enjoy the rest of your evening.

AYWalton: take care, SoulChile.

3rdthawkins: I'm looking for 229-11 Rockaway Blvd. in Springfield Gardens, my great grandparents lived there in 1935-36 and trying to see who lived there in 1930 Spivey

vicky: vkn, I like A for the new header

3rdthawkins: 229-11 doesn't exisit anymore so I can't use current maps to help

alt: Stehen P. Morse ... ONe-Stop something or other 3rdthawkins

vkn: okies

3rdthawkins: yeah, tried him too alt, HQ is just too difficult to search

alt: google Stephen P. Morse 3rdthawkins

3rdthawkins: oops, tried that site

Spivey: The City of New York has real property records, 3rdthawkins. The ones going back that far aren't online, but you can certainly write them.

3rdthawkins: I do and have used that site alt, it has helped me a lot in finding houses and streets, but NY proves a challenge............OK Spivey, thx

alt: so.. isn't genealogy a challenge LOL

Spivey: It does be that, alt!

vicky: it sure is alt!

3rdthawkins: yes, alt, but like on HQ, you can have ED #'s 379-385 and then all of a sudden it jumps to ED #'s 1138-1147 then it jumps back to ED #'s 289-296

Spivey: By the way, I have to coding for the disabling of the right click if anyone wants it. It is in HTML.

AYWalton: I would love to have it, spivey.

3rdthawkins: it's a mess on HQ

Spivey: Here's the NYC site for real property taxes 3rdthawkins. There should be contact information here:

3rdthawkins: ok ty

Khathu: goodnight everyone

vicky: nite

Spivey: May I e-mail it to you AYWalton? too long to post here.

alt: laters

3rdthawkins: nite Khathu

AYWalton: here is my email spivey. thanks.

Spivey: Got it, AYWalton.

AYWalton: thank you.

Spivey: My cousin was kind of upset when he couldn't right click anymore! lol

vicky: nite nite all. Its ice cream time and Dairy Queen will be closing soon

AYWalton: lol I hear you, vicky!

vicky: cya tomorrow

Spivey: Goodnight vicky. Mr Softee is outside now playing his jingle.

alt: laters vicky

AYWalton: I bet he was, spivey. did he call and complain? and if he did, I hope you told him why you did it.

Spivey: He came to my house and sorta led into the subject about what happened with my website, was there something wrong with it? lol

AYWalton: lol

Spivey: Came all the way from Maryland for a face to face and to 'share' information, which I still haven't heard.

AYWalton: and I assume that you know what he meant. How did you respond?

3rdthawkins: ok everyone good nite company may keep me away for the rest of the wk

AYWalton: nite 3rd.

alt: this 'disables'.. copy and paste for yoru website only, right Spivey?

Spivey: I told him exactly what I did and why I did it. This is the same cousin who purportedly has a studio portrait of our grandmother which I have been waiting ten years for him to give me.

AYWalton: well, next time you visit him, go with your digital camera in hand and snap away.

Spivey: I don't understand the question alt?

AYWalton: tell him it is an even exchange.

Spivey: LOL.

AYWalton: did you tell him why you did it? and if so, what did he say?

alt: you're saying you have html that disable the ability to 'right click'

Spivey: I have to actually put the coding on each page I don't want copied alt.

alt: ah so..

Spivey: He told me the photo was on its way AYWalton. THAT was over a year ago.

AYWalton: lol how did he respond when you told him you had disabled the page?

Spivey: This man programs for the DOD. So, you know he is a computer whiz. Can't even send a photo, though, it seems. He said that was not kind of me to do, after all they are his family too.

AYWalton: and nothing stopping him from researching them. hope you did not give in.

alt: so, I hope you told him that he was then 'free' to researc them as you had done.

Spivey: He goes to Atlanta quite a bit, AYWalton. Said there is absolute no record of our family in their archives. I have to get there myself to see for myself. I have some records, so I know that there are some.

AYWalton: if they have the Federal census---then the records are there. that is kind of amusing of him to say that. Like the pages with your family were just left out, or removed.

alt: what records is he looking for at the Archives?

AYWalton: Oh well----tell him to use the "source" he used to research them before.

Spivey: I have never understood his problem, AYWalton. His sister doesn't understand him either.

AYWalton: (of course since it was your site---I guess that is out of the question.) oh well. well folks, time for me to wind down. I feel the sand man calling my name, too.

Spivey: Okay. Almost that time for me as well.

AYWalton: and I am usually a night owl.

alt: me too way past my bedtime LOL

AYWalton: you all have a great evening.

Spivey: Everyone left again vkn, so I guess I will do likewise, and catch up on some genealogy work. vkn you there? Well, goodnight. I hope I can make it to chat tomorrow. Goodnight.
