HistoryBuff: Hey Selma

Selma: Good afternoon daviss, HistoryBuff, seventies and vkn

Seventies: It was yet again legitimatizing the Confederacy as a cultural norm while demonizing black style and telling us to forget about slavery, Jim Crow Etc. Giving the White boy a pass.

Seventies: I haven't watched the news on TV in years... they lie too much.

Selma: will have to come back and give us the results..

yatah: health or dna ? lol

Seventies: It doesn't relate to google. It ties into facebook as you can use your login to access it, but I didn't tie mine into either twitter or facebook.

vkn: dna results and hope you be healthy Yatah lol

Seventies: Its like the old pincushion photo board..

Selma: Ok that was confusng seventeis

alt: so what is the value/application of/for pintinterest?

daviss: yatah, just the dna results

yatah: yeah health results will tell me how ?

Seventies: I struggled with understanding that fora awhile, BUT you can post images there in an organized manner. And it also ties into other social media.

karoshi8: Hello everyone!

yatah: ok i will

Seventies: hi karoshi8

Selma: Afternoon karoshi8

daviss: hello karoshi8!

vkn: Alt and Daviss TribalPages not accepting GEDCOM from Mac OSX What a bummer

yatah: i hope good news about my dna result

alt: okay, so it is another social media "gimmick" lol said grumpy 'ol alt LOL

karoshi8: alt my dear I need your expertise!

Seventies: So I'm using it to post pics and docs... there are quite a few folks already out there on the genealogy side there.

vkn: Howdy karoshi8

alt: oh, oh you're in trouble karoshi8

HistoryBuff: Hey karoshi8

Seventies: Depends on your mastery of social media. But yes that's one view alt. LOL

yatah: hey 23 and me will tell how % of what tribe ? am come from

Seventies: nope

karoshi8: My KY trip was successful! I found 3 deeds with my 3rd great grandmother's name.

vkn: Good for you Yatah

Seventies: great!

yatah: yea i hope i can find something good

HistoryBuff: Great for you, karoshi8!. Deeds are treasures!

alt: don't expect too much 'ancestral' information from DNA & 23andme yatah

karoshi8: The first is in 1859 she bought a property from a Thomas Vaughn. Strange because she is a woman and married.

alt: sounds like a succesful trip karoshi8

Seventies: Ok let me say this, if y'all think 23 and me is going to give you ethnic origins information outside of European... sadly mistaken.. lol

karoshi8: But her husband isn't even mentioned.

daviss: yatah whatever it tells you be it black, what or whatever be happy

yatah: it will tell me how % black of mine ?

daviss: black white or whatever yes it will yatah, you will get percentages

vkn: ouchies seventies

yatah: if i am white and half black i will shock lol

Seventies: daviss dd you get that dna thing sorted out? lol I ran your M# and you are related to yourself! LOL

karoshi8: The second one has her selling it to my 2nd great grandmother. And states that Samuel, Squire(William), and Mary Robinson are living in Urbana, Ohio in 1885.

alt: it will give you you % of ethnic origins yatah

daviss: It will be what it will be Yatah..Its your dna makeup

alt: Urbana, Ohio !!!!!!!! that's home turf for me!!

karoshi8: Yup!

yatah: yea smile

Seventies: You know Tim Pinnick was telling me that his McFarlands came from KY. I'd asked because so many folks came to IL from MS.

Selma: she bought land in KY and sold to folks living in OHio?

karoshi8: So, the plot thickens. Because I was told they didn't come to Ohio until 1906.

yatah: thanks for your feedback

daviss: yatah you will"not" get tribe percentages

karoshi8: Yes Selma, but she sold to her daughter in law.

alt: karoshi8, I know the/a Robinson family in Urbana very well .....

vkn: Henry Ford was buying the tickets seventies and he created a town called Inkster so maybe same in IL

yatah: ok but will tell me black or white or native american or whatever right

Seventies: Hmm interesting.

karoshi8: Now this is the tricky part. I do have a Lillian Robinson on my Winbun/Winburn side that lived around Champaign Co. Samuel Stewart who is mentioned as living there on the deed married into the Winbun/Winburns.

yatah: ouch

karoshi8: My Lillian Robinson comes in with the Elder families.

vkn: Yatah hen you look in mirror what do you see

daviss: whatever your dna makeup is yatah it will tell you by percentages

yatah: hen ?

vkn: hen=when

daviss: You will see that when you get your results

yatah: oh i learn new hen lol

daviss: right!

vkn: lol cut that out yatah lol

HistoryBuff: lol

karoshi8: So, it could be one in the same. But I don't know much about the Robinson's at all.

yatah: my skin light color like olive mix little white on it light than all of my sister or my brother they dark than mine

daviss: one last thing yatah..When you get your results look under Ancestry Composition that is where you will find it

yatah: ok thanks for information

vkn: HistoryBuff not understanding your ? on relatives for Milton Bell. He is brother to my mother and one of 14 sibs

daviss: you are welcome yatah

karoshi8: What do you know of them alt?

Selma: BRB

alt: karoshi8, have you checked Champaign Co., OH census records from the 1900's forward?

Seventies: I'll brb too. Going to get cake.

karoshi8: Yum cake!

HistoryBuff: I'll look further, vkn.

daviss: I wonder what happened to the lady looking into Rusk County vkn?

karoshi8: I know in 1902 Samuel is in Ross county. I can't find any in Champaign Co before that.

vkn: Not sure daviss

daviss: ok

Seventies: Yes cake.. let me tell you about that.. lol One of my coworkers his wife had a baby last week. All are outside running around. Mom is wearing a midriff skirt.. lol I tell you.. not me.

vkn: HistoryBuff I have all of their stories.

Seventies: Who does that???

HistoryBuff: Okay Vkn. I'll follow up with you. Hey Selma.

Seventies: My grandmother who was a midwife always said that the body needs time to heal before you can go out into the elements. I just don't get it.

vkn: HistoryBuff I have all of their stories. None tie to his military service until his death in about 1932 when each recd a financial award based on the death

Selma: karoshi..did the land purchased in Ohio..stay in the family

alt: karoshi8, Robinson's married into the Stanhope family in Urbana, Ohio. that's one connection I know of from the turn of the century (1900's).

vkn: Well seventies the strain of child "bearing" meant that the bones and muscles had to re connect and "heal"

karoshi8: It was purchased in KY and mentioned the people in Ohio who were originally from KY

vkn: and seventies there could be no light in the room and the abdomen had to be bound

Selma: Oops..OK

Seventies: wow that's old school. My aunt told me to wear a girdle while my body was healing. ha! Now I wish I had... lol

Selma: LOL

karoshi8: Do you know where the Robinson come from?

alt: Robinson's also married Guy's in Urbana ..

karoshi8: I'm thinking Mary Robinson is the daughter of Harriet Stewart Withers.

Seventies: brb

vkn: not old school consider only school and that babies were being caught by midwives and mothers were being taught by midwives

daviss: I have seen several Grimes County Texas relatives listed as midwives on BC's None yet in Harrison County but I know there had to be

yatah: bye all good day

Selma: Bye yatah..come back next week

daviss: bye Yatah

alt: bye yatah

yatah: ok i will

vkn: Yes Daviss and many breeched babies were 'still born'

daviss: so true vkn

alt: yatah's interpretation of her DNa results is going to be very interesting LOL

Selma: Yes it is

vkn: sure will be

daviss: thats for sure alt

Selma: None of these DNA test give tribal affiliations?

daviss: thats what I think I was trying to say to her

alt: It is amazing some of the conclusions folks can arrive at from DNA testing results.

daviss: true vkn but I was jealous and had my own done lol lol

vkn: I posted an excerpt from a DNA expert which said test to be done from oldest male family member. Alt and Daviss what is up with that?

Selma: LOL

daviss: I then had my brother do his

vkn: so what does age have to do with Y and not with X

alt: I agree with that concept vkn.... oldest & possibly youngest members in a family line woudl be ideal.... example me @ 79 y/o & grt-grandchildren @ less than 1 y/o would give a tremendous range of possibilites. and grt-grandchildren would cross many different family lines.

vkn: So just when I get near the DNA shore I get tossed back to sea lol

karoshi8: alt, are there black Stewart's in Urbana?

daviss: lol so do the experts vkn

Selma: I am still treading water in the sea.. LOL

alt: I wish my parents were alive and I was able to get their DNA tested.

vkn: lol lol lol at daviss thanx for the rope and anchor

daviss: oh alt what I would give I saw you in the ocean Selma with your arms stretched wide lol btw nice pic lol

vkn: Me first Selma lol

Selma: Oh right..I forgot I had that picture there...that was the Indian Ocean couldn't you tell

vkn: lol lol lol

daviss: oh really, lol I only know pacific

HistoryBuff: Signing out. See you good folks later.

daviss: later HB

alt: bye HistoryBuff

vkn: Well Daviss best you check out link from Schomburg exhibit okies history

daviss: I meant as far as wading vkn lol lol

vkn: ahhhhhhh

alt: reading some DNA postings .... seems like a lot of "white' folks are finding some african ancestored family members in the genealogy/DNA histories.

vkn: I bet that is on target alt

Seventies: Yes, I found one on 23andme... no e-mail response yet. He shares the same surname as one of my ancestors... lol

daviss: lol alt and I would love for some of those to share basics with me..

alt: can't understand why that is thought to be so unusual, if 25-30 % of AA males have euro ancestry in their DNA.

daviss: besides my known family the rest are way up there and white

Seventies: 35% of AA males What are your thoughts about that daviss?

vkn: Seventies was saving this one for you

Seventies: ok

vkn: Sylvester Manor on Shelter Island Returns to Its Roots BY ANNE RAVER In the hands of a new generation, Sylvester Manor, the 17th-century estate on Shelter Island, has returned to its roots as a working farm, but in a 21st-century sort of way.

daviss: I have no thoughts really Seventies, I want wills and Inventories lol

vkn: Sent to me by niece who hopes to be´engaged in that project

Seventies: ok this is on the Sea Islands off GA?

vkn: Will tell you more tomorrow

alt: I wonder what the % is for AA's who have "white" females in the DNA/genealogical histories?

Seventies: ok daviss, honey best of luck. Look towards those folks. Also Moriah... have you looked for that?

daviss: I have about 7 folks that are 42% and 34 cms

Seventies: That's a great question alt. I have a black cousin who still won't share genomes or respond to me.

vkn: No NYC seventies

Seventies: 66% over 4 segments. okay vkn. hmmmm I'll have to look that up online to get more details. Thanks for sharing!

Selma: Is this someone you already know seventies..or only thru thr results

daviss: I do also and so does my grand. By those % she may have a sister or brother

Seventies: only through results Selma .66% I meant. That seems very high... what are you alls thoughts and opinions on this?

daviss: 3rd cousin mabe Seventies may be a 3rd cousin

Seventies: Definitely 3rd cousin

Selma: Like the paper trail that leads us to folks..DNA is seen as even more intrusive seventies..

vkn: Y'all be good. All the best karoshi8 Naptime selma

Seventies: later vkn

daviss: aside from those who research I can see that Selma fear of the unk

alt: between 23andme, FTDNA & AncestryDNA I have over 1,200 DNA "tested" cousins.... I wonder how many "untested" living cousins there may be out there 100K-200K, more?

Seventies: I mean come on so many families were separated for some reason or another that I don't feel we should take it so personal up to a certain extent.

Selma: Thats you seventies..not all see it that way

alt: and that "extent" is certainly personal Seventies

Seventies: that's true.

daviss: lol alt all I want is a few more of my lines to test and I will be happy. It could settle all those questions that are lurking in the back woods of east Texas

Seventies: I guess its about where you set your expectations.

alt: good luck daviss,

daviss: ha, no luck so far. my knees and clasped hands are raw from asking my three finger salute is almost near range

alt: Seventies, I don't even bother to respond to sharing requests unless the person has some knowledge of their ancestry.... I'm too old to be acting as a 'family finder" for just the inquisitive ... grumpy old man speaking LOL

Seventies: lol Gosh alt you have been grumpy for a while now. What's going on???

Selma: Grumpy is good.. lOL

Seventies: lol Selma

alt: I'm just old & tired Seventies, too tired for a lot of jibberish & BS, my time is now too valuable

Seventies: Yep I understand that... :} Anything else good going on with you all?

daviss: bye all, gotta make a few calls

alt: I love to help folks, but I ain't gonna any longer do their "heavy lifting" as far as genealogy is concerned.

Selma: Folks have to run..alt, my mom is waiting for 3 PM so she can watch the Masters

alt: Tiger was even par after 4 holes Selma

Seventies: have a good time Selma

Selma: Think I need a nap.. don't want to be GRUMPY

Seventies: ok look here. I'ma talk to you all tomorrow. Behave yourselves... Selma and alt! lol

Selma: LOL

alt: okay .. y'all take care

Selma: Bye ..bye karoshi
