HistoryBuff: Cool beans. I am in Washington, DC. Hey Sadonya.
ihhmag: Yes. That is where I found a record. Was wondering if more years are available?
suthernbella: No, Selma. I've been climbing my tree for a few years now.
vkn: suthernbella I am also in Atlanta
Selma: Then you are not a novice suthernbella
suthernbella: Then again, I suppose that is "new" :-)

Selma: I do some Lynchburg, VA research
suthernbella: Yay for Lynchburgh! I haven't had much luck there actually. It seems VA has it's own thing going with records. I was looking for a researcher.
HistoryBuff: You might try searching in with this link, http://www.archives.gov/press/press-releases/2007/nr07-55.html and http://www.archives.gov/research/arc/about-arc.html Sorry that was for ihhmag.
ihhmag: Thanks historybuff.

suthernbella: oh cool! How long have you been researching?
Selma: Quite awhile.. Since the 1990's.
vkn: Andersonville is an emotional experience for many
HistoryBuff: ihhmag, you might also try search the National Archives Atlanta Research center, http://www.archives.gov/frc/atlanta/
suthernbella: lol @selma
HistoryBuff: I am sure it is, Vkn.
ihhmag: Historybuff does Natl Archives Atlanta hold a lot of records?
Selma: What surnames are you researching in Lynchburg suthernbella
vkn: (howdy evpace)
Selma: WB Historybuff
vkn: wb History
evpace: Howdy guru.
suthernbella: My great grandparents, Arvis Williams and her parents Stephen Williams and Elizabeth Harvey. I placed Stephen and Elizabeth on 1900 and 1910 Census, but can't find them before or after that. They had one other child, son James. I have the marriage records of both children but I can't find anything about Stephen and Eliza.
HistoryBuff: Sorry took a wrong turn. Thanks Selma and Vkn.
suthernbella: I wrote the vital records office for the state and they were unable to find birth records on Arvis and James and no death records or marriage records on Stephen and Elizabeth.
vkn: Howdy Deb in Va
suthernbella: Hi Deb!
debinva: Good evening everyone
HistoryBuff: Hey debinva .
Selma: Evening debinva...
vkn: evening debinva
ihhmag: Anyone have any info about Liverpool, London & Globe Ins Co in New York during 1846-1880?
Selma: What year was Arvis born? and Stephen and Elizabeth Harvey? Not me ihhmag..
debinva: I did 23andMe. So far, I know what I knew before. Would like some names of distant relatives to make it all worthwhile.
suthernbella: Arvis born Jun 1882, Stephen born March 1862, Elizabeth born Mar 1864.
Selma: Well he survived...cause she is there visiting the Prison Camp
suthernbella: How long did it take for you to get results Debinva?
AYWalton: Am I back in a room with the crew?
vkn: wb ayw
HistoryBuff: wb AYW.
Selma: WB AY
HistoryBuff: Yeah for pension files.
evpace: Suthernbella, for a period around 1913 and earlier VA did not keep births/ vitals, Library of Virginia can give you the specifics.
suthernbella: thanks evpace. I didn't know that.
HistoryBuff: Friendly fire, eh?
Selma: VA kept birth and death on a county level from 1853 to 1896..
debinva: Suthernbella: about 4 weeks. Frankly, they told me what I already knew--% AA, % White. The new information was to confirm my Mongolian ancestry, which explains my Mongolian spot.
suthernbella: That's the thing, Selma, i don't know exactly which county.
Selma: then discontinued and picked up again on a State level in 1912 Lynchburg is an independent City in VA..not in a county
suthernbella: interesting results, debinva. I like the thrill of the chase so i told myself I don't want to know too much at one time. lol. Is that weird?
HistoryBuff: She's getting emotional about her findings.
Selma: Yes she is..
vkn: Wow she is emotional to the Max
Selma: What happened to AY again WB debinva
HistoryBuff: wb debinva.
suthernbella: Oh that makes sense Selma. I didn't know what the Independent City business was about. I will make a call and fire off an email request tomorrow to test the waters and see if they can look it up for me.
debinva: Suthernbella: don't worry--you won't.
vkn: debinva wb
HistoryBuff: He's a Wyatt Earp, eh? lol
evpace: We saw Josh in earlier seasons.
vkn: seems so
debinva: What is wb?
HistoryBuff: Boy she got a lucky break.
suthernbella: lol @debinva. my biggest mystery is with my Brooklyn family. I'm telling you, nobody knows anything and I mean nothing! So, I wanted my brother to take it for that purpose. Sometimes he gets funny about his DNA and not knowing "where it's going and what they're doing with it". You know the privacy rights type. lol
HistoryBuff: wb AYW
ihhmag: She sure did.
vkn: WB AYW
AYWalton: Ok I made it back.
Selma: Evening yportermoore..welcome to the Tuesday night chat..watching who do you think you are episode on TLC

suthernbella: You're welcome, AY!
vkn: Ether Deb
ihhmag: What about colored soliders pension files during the Civil War. Not much information on theirs.
AYWalton: I was thrown out when Mozilla crashed on me.
HistoryBuff: Clarkson just found out her 3-grandfather was a county sherriff and just saw his photo. wb Selma
Selma: Kelli Clarkson is getting lots of info
debinva: I understand people being concerned about taking a DNA test. No matter what the company says, they can do anything. Unless you sue them, there's no remedy.
AYWalton: Had to switch to my tablet
vkn: Is that new toy acting up AYW
Selma: OH good heavens ihhmag..there is tons of info in Pension Records for USCT soldiers
AYWalton: Inhuman I have found amazing family data from us colors troops.
Selma: The records are at the National ARchives ihhmag
evpace: African Ancestry does NOT keep your dna, it is destroyed.
AYWalton: At the national archives where the records are kept.
ihhmag: Under what heading for Natl Archives for colored soliders?
HistoryBuff: Bureau of the United States Colored Troops.
ihhmag: Thanks HB.
AYWalton: All pension files are at the same place.
Selma: Have you found someone who served ihhmag in the USCT
HistoryBuff: So now, she's a descendant of an Ohio state senator.
ihhmag: I believed a Perry Cooper from Maryland could be related.
Selma: LOL... Temperance
AYWalton: But temperance was critical for women who were victims of violence.
HistoryBuff: Then you may want to look at the compiled military service records for the Union side of Maryland .
ihhmag: Still at Natl Archives, HB?
AYWalton: Welcome Yvette
Selma: Good evening yportermoore..welcome to the Tuesday night chat..
HistoryBuff: Referring to Maryland state. In fact, check out Archives Online of Mar http://tinyurl.com/m4wedo3

yportermoore: Hello..Finally figured out how to get in the room
HistoryBuff: Hey yportermoore.
yportermoore: WDYTYA comes on later in San Diego
AYWalton: Also if your ancestor was a USCT, check the pension index.
HistoryBuff: Archives Online of Maryland.
vkn: She is in Columbus Ohio
HistoryBuff: Wonder who was governor of Ohio during that time period. Historic news articles are a treasure.
AYWalton: She is asking directed questions.
vkn: Alt will know lol
HistoryBuff: lol I concur.
suthernbella: Yes they are HistoryBuff! I found an article on my grandfather, July Jones. He owned a lot of property, was registered to vote and was debt free in the 1800s and met the General passing through at that time. It was in the AJC. :-)
AYWalton: A heritage book.
HistoryBuff: Happy to hear that you did find some information. AJC Adjutant General Court records? Hey Keli1
Selma: Evening keli
AYWalton: I see that Josh Taylor is quite the star this year.
suthernbella: Yeah, he kinda disappeared. He was buried in a private cemetery in a town called Irwinville that has sense closed down. I would love to get more information on him though. His land was taken though. I found the probate records.
keli1: Good evening!
suthernbella: hi heli1!
evpace: Check out the headstones, rather impressive I say.
AYWalton: He is the co-host on the Genealogy Road Show that will be in the fall.

evpace: Genealogy Road Show?
vkn: Great Keli1
HistoryBuff: So are you doing the happy dance, suthernbella ?
keli1: HI Angela! and all.
suthernbella: Absolutely HistoryBuff! It just seems that the town would have recognized him since AJC thought enough to put him in the society column. The town doesn't even have a Genealogy Society.
AYWalton: Lisa Lee And Nicka Smith were also finalists.
Selma: I saw on FB where LIsa went to the taping
AYWalton: Nice headstone.
keli1: Lisa just sat in on another taping of the genealogy road show, she said it was good
AYWalton: I wonder if she is related to Christine Rose.
HistoryBuff: Good job. Most of the AJCs were appointed to maintain much of the military records for most military records.
vkn: Who is Christine AYW
HistoryBuff: Congratulations Suthernbella.
suthernbella: That's good to know. One day I hope to take a trip to the Archives and just hang out in there for a couple days to see what I can find. They are really helpful. They sent me the records of my uncle from the Tuskegee Experiment. I absolutely love genealogy. It's the best thrill for me yet. :-)
keli1: Christine wrote the book on the GPS
vkn: okies thanx

Selma: We also have a 12 Noon EST chat..a Saturday night chat..and Sunday chat
suthernbella: That's awesome because my love says I spend more time with "unliving" people than I do with living ones. So, it's nice to be around people who have the same passion. :-)
