daviss: I have been going over a school census for Grimes County Texas again this morning. I wish I could get one like this for Harrison County texas.
HistoryBuff: Which year was the school census. ?
daviss: It lists all kids starting in 1873 with white and colored columns
HistoryBuff: Which type of school was it if I may ask?
daviss: I would assume that the Colored was a Rosenwald but they were counted under Enumeration Returns
HistoryBuff: Okay. Thank you. I need to review the history behind the Rosenwald school but what was the criteria to be eligible to attend that particular type of school?
daviss: The Superintentant submitted and verified Section 22 of "An Act to establish and maintain a system of public Free Schools in the State of texas.. names of all youths between the ages of six and eighteen The Rosenwald schools were for AA's
HistoryBuff: wb Vkn. Thank you, Daviss. I appreciate the information.
HistoryBuff: I've been attempting to research the military records of the FLOTUS's USCT ancestors via Fold3.
daviss: I was thinking this list had other years but looking at it its only for 1873. I need to get the other years..
HistoryBuff: I see Daviss.
alt: you have folks on the 1873 listing daviss?
daviss: I was able to get a list of kids that attended a Navasota school that was attached to a school reunion. It lists kids from the class of 1880 until 1967
vkn: daviss finger broken
alt: hey daviss, do you give lessons on Gedmatch?
daviss: no, just a 2 finger typist and a keyboard looker lol lol
daviss: I do know a bit of Gedmatch info alt :? what can I help you with
alt: okay, I need to see if I can "find" some of the stuff other folks are reporting to find on Gedmatch.
daviss: oh ok
alt: let me 'cruise; it for a day or two and I'll then have my questions ready for ya
daviss: happy to help
alt: thank you ma'am
daviss: >3 HistoryBuff are you getting into your results yet
HistoryBuff: Yes, I did find a record or two for both men, Ceasar Cohen and Jerry Suter/Sutton.
daviss: oh alt in answer to your prior question, I have underlined like Surnames and will see if I get any possibles
HistoryBuff: I'm downloading one now for my records. Here's a link of the AACWM Founders Day narrative, http://www.afroamcivilwar.org/news-a-events/press-releases/193-founders-day-to-explore-michelle-obamas-relatives-in-the-civil-war.html
daviss: thanks for link HistoryBuff
alt: okay daviss, I think I'm getting the hang of gedmatch and some of the features
Selma: Folks..I have to run..have a great day Bye
daviss: later Selma
alt: daviss, do you have matches on Gedmatch that show up on 23andme and/or AncestryDNA?
daviss: yes alt, Bearnut for one she should show on yours also.
HistoryBuff: Sorry I had to jump out. My mouse wasn't allowing to use the message box.
alt: okay, bearnut does show up on my gedmatches .. 4 people under her username
daviss: Actually its her cousin that matches me but others in her family match a paternal cousin of mine
alt: so you have a cousin of cousin of mine LOL LOL LOL
daviss: lol lol alt I am trying to figure out why the ones that match my 1st cousin does not match me lol but mabe its through their father
alt: that sounds resaonable daviss
daviss: their mother and my father are brother and sister
alt: sounds like they are the descendants of an ancestor of the brother/sister spouses. ?????
daviss: HistoryBuff did you download your raw data to GedMatch right alt
HistoryBuff: No Daviss. I'm sorry. I've been distracted. I'll definitely do that.
alt: that' where this stuff gets 'tricky' the downstream connections I call them.
daviss: It sure does alt. I just want to be able to understand this in common language
alt: I see that looking at the relationships betwen my greta-grandkids who are 1st cousins, but have no connections to the ancestors of the aunt/uncles ancestors. auint/uncles by marriage I should say
daviss: Triagulation is what I need to figure out alt
alt: me too lol lol
alt: I notice on those "composition" apps that folks seem to omit the "or" statements when they look at the percentages of French-Yoruba ... or Hungary-Youruba .. or Italian-Yoruba
daviss: hmmmm are they separated by % via each..or
alt: and they seem to think that where a tested person lives means that they have ancestors from that area ... I know I don't have any ancestors from Ubekestan LOL
daviss: the closest is the dominant one lol becky becky stan stan
HistoryBuff: Awww Ms Vicky! lol lol
alt: the connection French%-Yoruba% "or" Italian%-Yoruba% "or" German%-Yoruba% "or" ....... The constant is Yoruba and they can't really tell if the other componet is Frenc, Italian, German ... all they know is that it is western Europe.
daviss: oh I see what you are meaning..
HistoryBuff: Interesting indeed.
daviss: If the autosomal contains all three. You will see what components you are on 23 under the countries of your makeup but its only for 4 grands
alt: and each combintation usually adds up to 100%. and those country's of origin are 'self-reported' from the surveys you fill out in your profile.. so who knows.
daviss: I dont know alt, I did not answer that Q
daviss: I think I only put texas on mine USA and not sure if honest answers were input by folks
alt: for example.... you see Bahamae... Grenada, Jamaica as country of origin for parents/grnadparents... but aren't those folks ancestors from the Caribbean ... ususally West African????
daviss: I would say so
alt: so what does country of origin really tell us???? that could just as well be State like you said TX/OH/NC.. etc.. oh well
HistoryBuff: I'm back
daviss: :o the more tools the merrier alt lol
alt: I reckon daviss.. says a skeptical, doubting Thomas
daviss: thats how i feel about Surnames alt. I have yet to have one Surname Match besides the ones I submitted to 23
daviss: I manage about 5 or 6 and on each one I don't get a surname autosomal match
alt: don't get me started on surnames...... I have 1 Thomas surname match from over 1,000 y-DNA matches on FTDNA.
HistoryBuff: lol lol
alt: and only 2 Thomas surname matches from 766 23andme autosomal matches.
daviss: so that would mean that no-one input their data and let alone up to the limit of what, 67 is it? meaning on y-dna alt
alt: 1 Thomas match from 12, 25, 37 & 67 marker levels on Y-DNA test. and that is at the 12 marker level
daviss: see what I mean alt for us its so difficult Tyler does not have any yet 33 markers
alt: oh, oh I've just been told my Chat time is up... there's honey-do's to be done LOL ... laters y'all
daviss: ok alt cya later have a good one
alt: see ya'll Sunday.. hopefully
daviss: ok bye HistoryBuff, I wonder if the archives have anything on the Rosenwald schools?
HistoryBuff: If Rosenwald was part of any federal program and there are photographs. It may be. Worth looking into.
daviss: I C
HistoryBuff: Well I will catch up with you next time. Take care.
daviss: u2 cya
