Daviss: How have you been karoshi8?
karoshi8: Mr. alt! I had an Adams question for you!
Seventies: Hi alt, Daviss and Karoshi8
alt: okay Ms karoshi8 LOL
karoshi8: Hello Seventies and Daviss!
Daviss: Hi back Seventies
alt: hello ..... again Seventies
karoshi8: I have a Julia Ann Adams who married a Carter. I can't find her parents. Have you heard of her.
Seventies: Hey alt. I see y'all didn't get my 'going to lunch' message.
alt: don't think so karoshi8 .. when and where did JUlia & Mr. Carter live? nope, sure didin't Seventies
Seventies: oops.. lol
alt: Daviss said .. you were out to lunch Seventies
Daviss: lol lol
Seventies: Sheesh, what is this a jab at me?? lol Daviss... lol
alt: naw, wouldn't do that to ya Seventies
karoshi8: Never mind it is a Hackley she married. They were in Chillicothe. She was born in Ohio.
Seventies: I am again re evaluating my research and research goals.
alt: hmmmn, I have a lot of Chillicothe people, but not these two.
karoshi8: Who are your Chillicothe people?
Daviss: so are your goals expanded Seventies?
Seventies: Well just thinking about where I should be and where I am in my research of my family and the community. Its been like 6 years I've been doing this actively.
alt: Chillicothe ..Allen, Walden, Pritchet, Davis, Carter, Bradley ... most are from the mid 1800's. just to name a few karoshi8
Daviss: I feel ya Seventies.. You are well ahead of many of us
karoshi8: I have some Pritchets from Chillicothe too. Carter's I think in Gallia.
alt: good idea Seventies... to refresh & review where you are and where you want to go.
Seventies: Distance is somewhat of a hinderance that I've been trying to overcome.
karoshi8: I feel ya on that Seventies!
Seventies: Okay, alt so when you published your first book, about how long did it take for you to get all of your information together?
karoshi8: I'm at the point where I don't think I can get any further without going to the courthouse.
alt: Seventies, publish ???? I've done the genealogy (books) and my first one was probably 15-20 years ago
Seventies: I feel like 6 years is quite some time. Also, I know a person who has been doing research for 3 yrs and is teaching about how to research your AA ancestors. Honestly, I feel as if I'm behind on this.
alt: and it was with the information I had at that point..... you can always add, update these types of (books) with today's genealogy packages.
Seventies: And I pride myself on being up to date on everything.
alt: karoshi8, I'v found there is so much 'stuff' now online and you can do much of your courthouse research from the home... I recently was doing some work on Edgecombe Co., NC from probate court records that are online.
Seventies: Any suggestions?
alt: use the publish feature in your Roots Magic Program Seventies, play around with it and see what you come up with.
karoshi8: I've tried that route and I've come up with very little. The courthouse in Stanford, KY they say has never burned down. So I think my best bet is to go and look.
Seventies: thanks alt.
karoshi8: I'm trying to connect 3 branches of Stewart's all are free before civil war, reported to have native american ancestry, and live in or around Lincoln County, KY
Seventies: Daviss are you going to have problems staying on board today?
alt: well karoshi8, first hand & in-house is best, but be sure to continually check for online resources, they don't have to actually be 'housed' in the courthouse of the county you are researching, but may be in a State repository.
karoshi8: Thanks alt!
alt: you have looked at pre-civil war census records for Lincoln Co., KY????
karoshi8: Yes, I've been able to trace the Penman's, but not the Stewart's. They just kind of appear. Mine in 1850, another branch in 1860 and another in 1870-80 All say they were born in Kentucky.
alt: the KY State Archives have some great records... hopefully there is something there for you karoshi8
karoshi8: Are they online?
alt: yes, of their records are online and they also refer one to county resources that are online
karoshi8: Awesome! I'll do that today.
alt: Seventies, your book(s) will never be "finished" so just start with where you are and expand on that as your research progresses. wb Daviss
alt: Seventies, are you still with us?

Daviss: How's it going Selma?
Selma: Its going.. LOL
alt: oh, oh
Daviss: hahaha alt do you and karoshi8 share the same ancestors
alt: I'm not sure Daviss, we have folks who were in the same areas of Ohio in the mid 1800's, but we haven't made a connection as yet. I've been working with a cousin who just joined the columbus, oh AA gen group... hre Blackenberry & Gatewood families married into my Adams famly. we're doing some latye 1800 & early 1900 research.
Selma: talkingon the phone
Seventies: Hi Selma!
alt: wb Seventies
Seventies: Lunch hours just don't seem as long as they used to.. lol
Selma: Hi seventies
Seventies: How is all going dowin in your neck of the woods? Any new released records that I should be looking at? From RG105
Selma: Not sure about new..but think I need to write a post on how to use these documents..
Seventies: that would be awesome!
Selma: Folks just clump FB..and don't explain and nobody wants to read the descriptive pamphlet
Seventies: I didn't mention this before, I don't think I did, but anyway on my transcription of the Beverly Plantation, I think I found my great-great grandfather Canada and his brother William... I was so surprised!
Selma: How wonderful
Seventies: Reading that descriptive pamphlet is a MUST Or else you will be hopelessly lost...
Selma: Seventies..folks want the Leaf.. LOL
Seventies: lol yep! From what I understand researchers don't really care for the set because of just that reason, they really have to look. I don't mind. Even if you don't find your direct ancestors, you get a feel for the community they lived in. I like that.
Selma: Yes it puts your folks in the context of where they are and what is going on in their community..during an especially critacal time Well getting off my soapbox..you are one of my star pupils.. Bernice loves it too
Seventies: lol I try...
Selma: I gotta run...go to work sevenites..gonna try to stay awake tonight
Seventies: lol I'm going to the gym... have a good time in chat.
Selma: Good for you.. Enjoy
