Daviss: R U at work ?
Seventies: Yes of course..lol Really wishing I could be at the archives today through Friday.. lol
Daviss: I imagine Seventies
Seventies: Been doing research for a few minutes this morning...
Daviss: where, on Family or Ancestry?
Seventies: Trying to work out some things... research wise and money wise. I need money, money, money to continue my research. Trying to figure out ways to get more cash. hello alt
alt: hey Seventies & Daviss, What's Up?
Seventies: Nada.. looking for money,honey! lol
Daviss: don't we all Seventies.... I could sure use some to get halfway going towards an archive Hello alt!!
Seventies: Daviss, people are just giving away money... I'm contemplating how I can get some cash. Seriously.
Daviss: Yes I know, I think Sharon is going through that same route that you are
Seventies: I've seen a couple of grants, but I really want to get into the crowdfunding piece. Well I visit the crowdfunding sites 3x's a week and have not seen her campaign yet.
Daviss: not sure which one but I know she has been actively involved for at least two or three yrs
Seventies: I thought she was doing crowdsourcing and not crowdfunding...
Daviss: I have no idea but just know she has
Seventies: Crowdsourcing lets people volunteer to do work for you or your company. Crowdfunding lets them give you cash.. lol I would like cash to do my research...
Daviss: She is I think trying to get a grant to do her research is all I know
Daviss: Did I say hello to you alt/
Seventies: nope... lol
Daviss: oops that should be a q mark' lol hello alt!!!
alt: Hello Y'all .. you were talking about something more important .... money LOL
Seventies: indeed alt, indeed! :}
Daviss: Barrett Strong 1959 lol
Seventies: This has been on my mind for about a year now.
Daviss: Big Jay McNeely lol 1961
Seventies: What in the world??? LOL
alt: early musicians Seventies
Daviss: thank you alt lol
deannie: Hi everyone
Daviss: hello there deannie
Seventies: Hello deannie...
alt: Big Jay .... There Is Something On Your Mind
Seventies: thanks alt
alt: Hello deannie
deannie: I have a question, if I have a Family Tree on Ancestry am i able to download it to Memory stick. Or did I have to copy every person and reenter in to my Famiiy Tree
Seventies: You can download your tree as a gedcom...
Daviss: I can't answer that deannie hi Selma!!
alt: Not sure deannie, but don't you have the same tree in your software package ... FTM or RM, etc.? you can load to a memory stick from there.
Seventies: You should first download the Gedcom and then add it to whatever family tree program you are using. what alt said.
Selma: Good afternoon alt, daviss, deannie and seventies
Seventies: Hi Selma
alt: Hello Selma
Selma: Hey alt..I was hoping you knew something about those folks in the blog
alt: deannie, that is one of the great features of the full version of Roots Magic... they have a feature called "Roots Magic To Go" specifically used for loading Gedcom's to a memory stick.
Seventies: If you have RootsMagic, you have a to-go program which will allow you to take your tree with you if you opt to save it on a flash drive.
Seventies: geez alt, are you reading my mind here??? lol
alt: Hi Selma.... I did know some Via's in Columbus, but nothing about their family history or genealogy.
Selma: I figured you knew it all about folks in Ohio alt.. lOL
Seventies: Okay so has anyone been taking advantage of the free records offered this month?
deannie: Thanks so much for the information. I have a Family Tree Software
alt: not quite Selma....
Selma: Think I have the Free Negro Register for Augusta..gonna look them up
alt: that is in interesting story Selma.....
Selma: Someone transcribed and published many years ago The blog I am talking about is the one by the Library of Virginia..Out of the Box..
alt: some good stuff there Selma
Daviss: I agree alt, I thumbed through it about an hour ago..
deannie: Hi keli
Selma: Talking about a case where woman emancipated her slaves in 1860, family sued but lost..slaves were emancipated and sent to Ohio..where she left them money to buy land
keli1: Hello Lunch Bunch!
Daviss: hi there keli1
Selma: Afternoon keli
keli1: Selma all good on your part?
Daviss: How was the conference keli1
alt: Hello keli1, good 'seeing' you, how have you been?
deannie: I have to run my co worker wants me to do some work lol
keli1: It was very good, great campus,, etc, I can't wait for MAAGI in July
Selma: WORK..whats that.. LOL
Daviss: take care deannie
alt: a bad four letter word Selma LOL
Daviss: Thats good to hear keli1...wish I could go
keli1: doing good Art, hanging in there as one would say
Daviss: too many irons in my fire
keli1: I had to check it out, and took the train...loved it
Selma: Jeez just got email from someone asking me for 1,000 cause they are stuck in Manila...
Seventies: I guess no one has looked at any free records then..ok...
Daviss: great keli1..MAAGI is a ground breaker within itself
Seventies: Block that mess Selma... lol People are still running that game, hmph..
keli1: for sure, lots of opportunities for those who want to learn about AA genealogy research
Daviss: good afternoon yatah
Seventies: hi yatah
Selma: What free records seventies? Afternoon yatah
yatah: my dna at lab now
Seventies: Proquest, Ancestry, Fold3 (I think)... etc
alt: hello yatah
Daviss: Our family reunion is in Atlanta on that 3rd weekend keli1 so it would be doubly hard for me to do both
keli1: went to Sweetie Pies-Upper Crust
Seventies: I have to visit MAAGI's site again... Wonder what new tracks are available there?
Selma: I used the newspaper database..great resource
Seventies: Any tracks on slavery and slave records?
Selma: I was looking at the JET archives too..a friend was in a plane crash in early 1960's..she was in it..sent it to her
keli1: new tracks, not sure they changed, I have Beginner's methods and strategies
Seventies: wow. Does Google still have the old archives of Jet magazine? Love looking at those.
Daviss: yes they do seventies
Seventies: Other than for profit, anyone know of any routinely free sites with African American records specifically.
yatah: now i wait for my result smile
Daviss: yes yatah, it will be awhile until they come back
Seventies: Yep a good minute.
Daviss: I don't seventies
yatah: mine said will 6 to 8 week daviss
Seventies: That sounds right.
Daviss: thats about right yatah
yatah: due high volume
Seventies: That's the normal time... lol
yatah: oh ok my first time
alt: who did you you test with yatah?
Daviss: keli1, did you run into Angela at the Conference/
Seventies: Alright folks, I'm going to skeedaddle... have a good one.
yatah: myself alt for now if enought result no problem
alt: no, I mean company yatah .. AncestryDNA, 23andme, FTDNA ... which company di you test with?
yatah: sorry 23 and me
alt: okay, thanks yatah
yatah: welcome hope i can find answer where i am from lol
keli1: I will look I think there sessions, but not a whole track, track is 12 workshops
Daviss: whoa keli1
alt: Selma, Seventies got out of here before I could tease her about specific AA records .... I was gonna lay your statement on her to "look for all types records, AA's are in them and not just AA specific records"
keli1: Do you know if I can upload my DNA stuff to familytreedna and if there is a charge
Selma: Folks I have to run..have a good day
alt: from where keli1?
keli1: national genographic
Daviss: ohhhh not sure about them keli1.. I know you can with 23
alt: not sure about that one keli1. I know 23andme had a procedure with FTDNA, might want to check the FTDNA Home Page for transfers www.ftdna.com
Daviss: the charge for 23 is 89 dollars in fact I transferred mine and am now waiting for results
alt: Daviss, does that transfer include ftdna doing and matching y & mtdna as well as the family finder, or is it only to connect 23andm3 RF matches to ftdna FF matches?
keli1: okay I will check
Daviss: its the same as family finder I imagine alt
alt: okay ... did ftdna give you a haplogroup match(s) and also start matching you with haplogoups as well as Family finder matches?
Daviss: I have a hap matches
alt: oh, okay .. thanks
Daviss: on 23 my hap is Lo2 and on FTDNA its Lo1a
alt: is that right? wonder why the diff and if that is a significant difference?
Daviss: all my maternal is LOa1a ....tripped me out at first
keli1: I am h
alt: me too keli1 ... H3
Daviss: called them and they said something about triangulation at 23. I will go with all my other women lol L0a1a
keli1: Oh I can't remember the number after the H, heehee, H1
Daviss: I think it may be what tool they used is my thinking
alt: I don't even bother with the ftdna mtdna matches .... too many.. I have like 9,000 HVR1 matches and 2,500 HVR1 & HVR2 full sequence matches for H3.
Daviss: no because that is only the population right alt
alt: Davis ??????
Daviss: like me and Cook match on both but not autosoma;\ we thought we would but nada
keli1: I need to see if what I actually have is the autosomal
Daviss: do you mean with NG
alt: I have about 70-75 Family Finder matches and when I do s 'search' on those names for haplogroup matches (y & mtdna) I get only about 10 that are on both sets of matches.
Daviss: how close are those matches alt?
alt: that might be just because of the depth of testing done by the other folk, perhaps they haven't done the Family Finder testing
Daviss: right keli1 did you test with 23?
keli1: yes I did, but have a cousin who tested with genographic, I want his info
alt: 1 matches on 65-67 Y-DNA markers and he is a 5th cousin.... which I think means we should have a common 4th great-grandfather.
Daviss: did you download to Gedmatch also? Have you two connected alt meaning via email
alt: we've corresponded Daviss, but haven't made a connection.
keli1: I am not sure I downloaded to gedmatch, I will check tonight when I get home I need to go, vicki I will catch you on fb and let you know, thanks
Daviss: please do keli1 and let me know ok bye take care
alt: my father's father was born in slavery about 1852 ...white man/black woman... I have no genealogical information on that line beyond my grandfather whatsoever.
Daviss: I downloaded my brothers y to that y-database alt..not sure how to go about looking at it
alt: me neither Daviss... like I said last week or so.. I'm DNA's out LOL
Daviss: lol I keep saying that but have not closed the door
alt: oh, I'll list, but I'm not goona follow up like I would with the genealogical information.
Daviss: I hear ya alt
alt: what chromsome(s) we match on and the length doesn't really do anything for me. but that's just me
Daviss: I know, I read something about a match that is right in the middle of a chromosome.. I could not figure out what that meant would that be any different if it were the same length and broken up in different lengths lol
alt: don't get me to lying LOL LOL LOL
Daviss: hahahaha or what difference would it make if we match on 1 or on 15
Daviss: does each chromosome mean different things excluding the X why don't you go back to school alt and study this stuff lol lol lol
alt: I'm not sure what 'closeness' mean with these cousin matches.......are they closer in generations (1st & 2nd cousin) or are they closer in Y-DNA markers & HVR regions which would push them further back in generations?... I just give up I did Daviss, as a biology major and that is what is confusing to me..... we studied the inheritance of 'genes' and not chromosomes. dominant & recessvie, heterozygous & homozygous, mutations & Mendalian Law. of course that was 45-50 years ago LOL LOL L
Daviss: I think we should go to the casino and pull on the handles....That should shake up dem bones if we hit a good one lol
alt: let's go... oh no, it's too cold here to go out 10 degrees and feels like -10 according to the weatherman
Daviss: wow that's cold!!
alt: you go and I wish you the bestest & goodest of luck LOL
Daviss: lol Its raining here so I better just work the internet
alt: laters partner
Daviss: later and take care
alt: see, we can't even catch a break with the weather LOL
Daviss: lol\ bye
