Seventies: I'm still trying to understand the changes in my own DNA testing...
daviss: yes yatah there is a dna forum here to post questions also
Seventies: 23 and me is well, not as good as they advertise in regards to genetic genealogy. which reminds me... Did I mention my latest genetic match??
Selma: Are you related to Joe Biden?
vkn: lol lol lol
Seventies: lol ha ha ha Selma
Selma: Excuse me..I am delirious here..need a nap
daviss: why do you say that seventies compared to other companies
Seventies: Well, I don't think that they really took the time to go over other databases to refine their database... so many changes.
Selma: So who is your new match seventies?
daviss: Build 3 was huge
Seventies: Some guy... lol .66% over 4 segments
daviss: Ged Match will hopefully get theres done so I can download from FTDNA
Selma: Is that really close seventies?
Seventies: Its ranges from 3rd to 4th cousin... but 23andme determines it as a 3rd cousin. Its a much closer of a match than my next highest match of .46% a female who I've determined was a 3rd 1/2 cousin. Meaning that there is only one common gg grandparent.
daviss: well gotta run folks time to go get breakfast
Seventies: bye daviss
Selma: Have a great day daviss...
daviss: later and have a nice day
Selma: Do you have a name of this person..or just know that he is male? or where he is?
Seventies: Right now, I just see them as a male. and I sent an invitation. The profile is private
Selma: Then it could be Joe Biden.. LOL
Seventies: lol Selma Selma Selma
Selma: Well we will wait to hear the details when he responds..
Seventies: Me too Selma!
Selma: Did the female respond to your invitiation?
Seventies: Then I have another person Roos, who shares .65% over 2 segments... no response... I suspect they may be another race Yes they did... that's the lady in Virginia. She's my highest match on gedmatch as well.
Selma: Does she research? Is Virginia where her folks were from?
Seventies: Yes. Va and nc
Selma: Did she say what county or counties?
Seventies: Henry Co. and Halifax Co. Va
Selma: Oh jeez I research Henry Co..and Char Bah researches Halifax
Seventies: Stokes, Union, Harnett, and Forsyth, Co. NC Okay then were there any major slave markets in either of those areas that sold down south?
Selma: Honey the whole state was a slave market
Seventies: lol I know of Franklin and Armistead because of Khathu's research. They were up in Alexandria.
Selma: They could have moved with the slave owning families who moved down south..you have a huge migration of folks moving to lower parts of the south There was a slave market in Richmond.. The name escapes me..
Selma: Do you have an approximate time frame when this movement took place
Seventies: My grandfather, who is the source of the information, never said when...
Selma: But if you found them on the census...how old was the oldest person giving VA as birthplace?
Seventies: Selma, I haven't found any consistently being born out of MS.
Seventies: Example, on an 1880 census it'll say VA/AL or whatever, but after that MS
Selma: and how old is that person in 1880
Seventies: Knowing my grandfather, it was most likely his great grandparents who came drawing a blank... lol
Selma: You have a large migration in late 1700's and early 1800's of folks looking for land.. Moving west and south
Seventies: Ok I get that, especially in the area in which my family settled.
Selma: I have a series of books done by a woman..will have to dig them out..she did her own maps showing migration movements
Seventies: I know a lot of people migrated to SW MS and LA for free land given by the Spanish and French. Do you know the title by chance?
Selma: I'll dig it out later today Seventies, seventies..you know I have piles..I have to find the right pile
Seventies: lol I thought it was just BJ and I... lol
Selma: You have no idea..I should take a picture but I won't
Selma: Well guess I better run Will look for the book..
Seventies: me too enjoy your nap '
Selma: Have a great day..yes I will enjoy my nap
Seventies: thanks Selma. Your help is greatly appreciated Have a good day vkn
