daviss: hello there alt not much up here alt just shaking off the night before lol What about you?
alt: I'm doing fine daviss, you had that morning coffee?
daviss: no in fact I have only been up about twenty mins
alt: Oops, still catching up, huh?
daviss: Morning shower then turn on computer to get to chat lol lol sad huh lol
alt: nope, you've got your priorities right. LOL
daviss: hahahahaha so I wonder why the kids ask me everyday "what did you do today Nanta" and I just look at them
alt: you tell them that you were "busy" doing what you want to do.
daviss: I guess they think one of these days I will sneak something new in lol Any suggestions on the Turner post that found her great grand's citation. Felder is the name
alt: let me see, what Forum is it on?
daviss: I am not sure where she should go from there Slave Forum I have not even gotten to that point yet
alt: okay, just saw it.... nope , no suggestions sounds like the brother "got outa Dodge".
daviss: I am thinking that the courthouse in that area may have those petitions but no so sure about it
alt: there should be Guardianship Papers filed, if the guy wants to be released from that role.
daviss: right and then knowing where he fled to
daviss: I would assume working backwards got her to that point
alt: sometimes I think folks aren't really asking for help, but just want to let us know what "papers" they have collected on their ancestors.... there's that suspicious/doubting mind of mine at work.
daviss: Hello vkn and Selma
alt: Hello vkn & Selma
vkn: Hey hey hey and howdy selma daviss alt

vkn: well some person is trying to do fundraising from here for their new website. Folks do have nerve !!!!!
alt: I don't know if we ever know one's "agenda" daviss
Selma: I saw that too vkn.. LOL
Selma: I think David...could give that person a better idea on where she can locate the document It is probably on microfilm
vkn: lol lol
alt: yep vkn.... I was shocked when I first read the posting and even more so when I read about the "agency" on their website.
Selma: I didn't go the the link..what is the agency
alt: my suspicious mind again.... do yo think the donors listed are, could be, a 'setup"?
vkn: Some brass a.. nerve
alt: they have a title and are listed as a non-profit Selma and are asking for donations/seed money.

HistoryBuff: Hey Khathu
vkn: Yes but now that is over daviss
Khathu: Question - Has anyone been successful with defining or confirming the relationship on 23andMe relative finder?
daviss: ok vkn, good to here that
vkn: Gov signed bill yesterday
daviss: Yes on the top of my head Mel Collier is one
Selma: Yes..daviss..think he wrote about it on his Blog
Seventies: Nope, not as of yet. Time and distance.
daviss: I know of one other person who has confirmed one and durn near close on another I am sure there are more but requires having ducks in a row research wise
Khathu: I have been working on trying to determine the relationship with one individual in which the percentage is .86% and possible connection is 3rd cousin. and 4 segments
daviss: That is a good piece khathu
Seventies: ok how many segments Khathu?
Khathu: I am trying to figure out the best strategy for tackling this project 4 segments
Khathu: 3rd cousins share which common ancestor(s) gg grandparent or ggg grandparent? I have been working on this off and on for over a year now
daviss: I do know that the lady that is working on her 2nd match all are connected via email and conference calls in a group
daviss: I also know that none of them walked in empty handed, they all had something to work with as far as records, etc
vkn: Conference calls sounds good
daviss: that made it easier
Khathu: She did share her family tree with me
daviss: If I remember correctly one of them had a family bible filled with info
Khathu: 3rd cousins share the same gg grandparent, right? The family is out of Tennessee and until recently I did not have or discovered any roots there.
daviss: kathu do you want me to send you the relationship chart I use khathu
Khathu: Earlier this year I discovered a gg grandmother Maria Ann Shott whose place of birth is listed as TN in the 1870 Census I would greatly appreciate it daviss...thanks
daviss: no problem
Selma: Khathu..is this Maria Ann..the person you both think you share?
Khathu: Since all of their research is in TN, I am thinking so
daviss: You should have it by now Khathu Does she have that Surname in her line Khathu
Khathu: Thanks daviss
Seventies: Any age on Maria in 1870??
daviss: Shott is an odd name isn't it?
Khathu: She is 28 y/o There were only two households of Shotts in Van Zandt Co., TX in 1870
daviss: Oh Khathu do you have any Williams in Leon County?
Khathu: Yes, I do My ggg grandfather (Andy Perkins) had an outside family and all of the children went under the surname Williams I have a meeting to run off to.ttyl
