alt: hello HistoryBuff
AYWalton: hello HistoryBuff.
HistoryBuff: Hey Alt, AYWalton, evpace, ihhmag, Keli1 and Selma. I'll look at the show at 11:00 p.m. EDT.
AYWalton: I see. We are watching it right now.
evpace: What and where are you watching;I csnt get it.
ihhmag: hi historybuff.
Selma: Its on TNT evpace
AYWalton: Clearly a handbook is just what handbooks are. Guides that espouse the philosophy of the party.
Selma: Oops TLC See thats what happens now that we have 400 channels to choose from and try to remember
AYWalton: I don't know anything about Chelsea Handler at all. Who is she?
Selma: I was just going to ask that AY.. LOL
keli1: comedian, has her own show, has a filthy mouth
AYWalton: Interesting that they have no people of color. Not even one token soul.
Selma: That was quick and to the point keli.. LOL
evpace: Got it on TLC thanks!
AYWalton: Well she seems to know already that grandpa was a nazi.
alt: at least she suspected he was
keli1: yea if you had a manual/booklet, you would be a member, in my mind
AYWalton: Their theme this year seems to be focusing on only one ancestor, and not to go back multiple generations taking folks back to European royalty or something. exactly my thinking keli1
keli1: training base
AYWalton: kind of mandatory boot camp. Ooo....Jewish or colored. Can't get more to the point than that!
keli1: jewish or colored, interesting
ihhmag: I guess he would drop dead now if he knew she dated 50 cent.
AYWalton: She dated 50cent?
AYWalton: ( I always want to put an "s" on his name.)
evpace: White and pure....untainted and superior keli1
keli1: she got to go to the headquarters
AYWalton: lol and a bit of chocolate for decoration, perhaps.
ihhmag: and he would have her killed with all the gay friends she has.
alt: so he was like 'impressed' ????
AYWalton: I think 50 had his genealogy done as well.
ihhmag: as 50 would say, she's a smart and fun girl.
AYWalton: sounds like it may have been like being drafted, perhaps. is that what 50 would say? I have no familiarity with him other than his name that needs an "s" on the end.
alt: maybe... the confederacy "impressed' slaves to do the menial tasks
evpace: Same here AY
AYWalton: good point, alt.
ihhmag: seems he wanted to keep private and professional life separate so he didn't acknowledge her in the public.
AYWalton: I see. I still can't believe that Jimmie JJ Walker dated (or dates) Ann Coulter. Talk about strange bedfellows!!
evpace: Say what???
ihhmag: everybody for somebody.
AYWalton: yes, kind of weird, huh? wow they have his documents.
Selma: Jimmie Walker and Ann Coulter..?
AYWalton: He was drafted.
evpace: Interesting record.
AYWalton: Yes, Selma---that's old news---about 2 years old.
ihhmag: eat, have a home, live or be killed.
Selma: The mind boggles
ihhmag: that's the choices.
keli1: that is for sure ihhmag!
AYWalton: she is really pulling for his being "not interested" in the German cause.
keli1: she is going to come back to the US
alt: yep, a go along to get along kind of guy
ihhmag: turn your back or blind eye so that your family is protected and safe.
alt: yep ihhmag
ihhmag: hard decision to come to.
evpace: Self preservation too.
AYWalton: Interesting. In the long run, she will likely conclude that grandpa did what he had to do to survive, which is probably true.
alt: yep AYWalton
ihhmag: probably very happy to become a US prisoner.
AYWalton: I know that one of our chapter members who is in her 80s mentioned how German prisoners were even brought to Maryland, and they could eat in the front and American born black folks had to get sandwiches in the back of several restaurants. And these men were still prisoners---still enemy soldiers.
Selma: Ironic isn't it
alt: i guess not unusual for him to not have a problem if he didn't have to deal with 'other' Jews & Black folks according to his pledge for the Sports thingee.
ihhmag: yep but then again, blacks in italy or paris were treated well there and had no say back in the US.
keli1: where was the prision camp?
AYWalton: Greetings Seventies!
Seventies: good evening everyone
ihhmag: hi seventies.
keli1: shipped to the USA
Seventies: Just getting back from visiting with my great aunt
alt: I've heard of the German POW's at Wright=Patterson AFFB here in Ohio and how well they were treated..... better than the Black Civil Service employees
AYWalton: No problem to head to the Riviera! yes black citizens were still given priveleges as whites.
Selma: Good to see you seventies
alt: hello Seventies
AYWalton: (which probably confirmed their racial superiority sentiments.)
evpace: WhenI was in Berlin I never felt comfortable.
Seventies: hi alt, AYWalton, evpace HistoryBuff ihhmag keli1 Selma
keli1: Hi 70s!
evpace: Evening 70s!
Seventies: I still have more people to visit and pictures to post. things are going well in MS. I think I'm heading up to Jackson in the AM tomorrow
Selma: Sounds like you are having a great time seventies
ihhmag: 70s you're in Mississippi now?
Seventies: I am!
Seventies: I'm in Mississippi visiting family and working on some genealogy. Went to the court house yesterday. Also went to the Natchez Historical Society
AYWalton: Saw your post, Seventies.
ihhmag: 70s that was my next question. Too late for me to ask for a look-up?
AYWalton: Hmm......nothing really revealing in this episode. At all.
Seventies: Oh WDYTYA is on? ihhmag, what are you looking for? I plan on going to research African American deaths in Adams County and some in Wilkinson County MS at MDAH
AYWalton: we are all watching it together 70s.
alt: have you seen Boxley yet Seventies ?
Seventies: No he's out of town right now alt.
ihhmag: Well, 70s, a grand-father, white, named John L. Wheeler. Lived at 800 Grove in Vicksburg, MS.
alt: oh, okay
Seventies: Are you looking for his DC ihhmag?
AYWalton: Have you met him before, alt?
alt: Boxley.. yes I have AYWalton
ihhmag: Yes, that would be great. 70s, I only found him in the 1930 census and 1931 Vicksburg city directory.
Seventies: I want to see if I can get funeral information from a once closed funeral home West Funeral home in Natchez, MS
HistoryBuff: gotto run
Seventies: See ya HistoryBuff
AYWalton: Ooo a small plane!!
AYWalton: I would have had to take a bus.
Seventies: Yesterday, I acquired a court case for the family which my great great grandfather purchased his land from in 1899. Trying to determine what the lawsuit was about between these family members.
AYWalton: wow, nothing on the horizon.
alt: could be a land partition case Seventies
ihhmag: Yes, that would be great. Do you think you can do that?. 70s, I only found him in the 1930 census and 1931 Vicksburg city directory.
Seventies: yes, it was. For a place called Woodland Plantation. I thought it was Woodlands Plantation. Which there is one in Natchez and in Woodville, but not out in Sibley.
keli1: oh my goodness...
Seventies: ihhmag, where else did you find him? that's it? Do you find him in Louisiana or Arkansas after 1931?
AYWalton: amazing that she found her grandfather in a photo. I would have shown more emotion than she.
ihhmag: Seventies, maybe found him in the 1900 census birthplace West Virginia. Only in Vicksburg, MS and he was a lumber man
Seventies: Did you check 5 pages before and after the page you found your ancestor on?
ihhmag: Seventies is that a question for me?
ihhmag: 5 pages in the directory, you mean?
Seventies: did you check for any other possible relatives?
alt: not much genealogy, but a good story
evpace: This makes me sad when I know how we struggle with brick walls,etc trying to piece our stories together. Lucky for her.
AYWalton: I agree, alt. Nothing new even that she learned, but it was ok.
alt: yeah, she, or the researchers struck gold with this story evpace
AYWalton: I guess I shall sign out and watch the Zumba madams.
Seventies: ihhmag, did you already request your ancestor's DC from MDAH?
AYWalton: plus I need to work on my FGS presentations. Have a great evening everyone.
Seventies: you too AYWalton
AYWalton: Good night all.
evpace: Nite all and good chatting.
ihhmag: sorry, seventies I don't know what DC from MDAH is.:(
Selma: Well folks...Good night
ihhmag: you mean death certificate from vital records....no haven't
Seventies: You should contact MDAH at mdah.state.ms.us and order the Death Certificate. http://mdah.state.ms.us
ihhmag: yep. will have to take the plunge. Thanks. have a good one.
Seventies: Ok have a good night
