vkn: Greetings to all
AYWalton: good evening all. greetings, Nadasue, and evpace!! welcome to the chat for Genealogy Roadshow!
Nadasue: Helloooooooooo there!
evpace: Evening TEACHER and all!
AYWalton: So good to see you, Nadasue!
Nadasue: Thanks. Good to be here.
AYWalton: good to see you as well! welcome back, Sonia!
Selma: Good evening folks..
AYWalton: Hello there, Mizz Selma!!
Nadasue: Evening, Selma. Thanks for sending the email!
Selma: You are welcome
AYWalton: I think they are in Nashville tonight.
Sonia: Got kicked out. Doing well Angela. And you? Hello everyone!
Nadasue: Yes Hi Sonia
Selma: Ok who is Emmit Miller?
Nadasue: FYI... I'm multi-tasking...
AYWalton: aren't we all? Not sure, Selma!
AYWalton: who is that lady?
evpace: Do we know Kenyatta
AYWalton: yes, I know her.
Selma: Oh please
AYWalton: Of course there are white folks in the family! that is not a surprise.
Selma: Thats how they start
AYWalton: welcome dw! interesting that there is an audience. kind of different approach.
Selma: Evening dw
dw: hello all
Nadasue: One of my white ancestors was a previous governor of North Carolina (William Hawkins)
AYWalton: Oh-----I know who was doing this background research!!
Sonia: This sounds more like John Edwards, psychic
AYWalton: One of the researchers contacted me with this question. those must be the relatives standing close by.
Sonia: with the folks standing around watching :p
AYWalton: the young man in the blue shirt behind her must be a relative. Yes,----Austin Peay is supposed to be the father of this lady's ancestor. One of the researchers for this show's episode wanted to know if he might have had a child with the maid. Uh yeah!!! He looke like he may have been a little bit mixed. and the maid was older than the young teenage boy.
evpace: Nadasue one of my ancestors was a founder of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg,Va.
AYWalton: and here we go. yes, she told me about the letter.
Nadasue: I have friends with that last name, but they pronounce it, Pee-ay.
AYWalton: does the letter verify the parentage?
Selma: Who wrote the letter?
AYWalton: not sure who wrote the letter. Josh Taylor just retweeted my question on who wrote the letter. Interesting about Fate---really Fayette. Or Lafayette yep!
evpace: In some families the children referred to elder help as aunt and uncle.
AYWalton: Yes, that happened a lot.
vkn: true evpace
AYWalton: Good that he was a USCT. the case is not a complicated one.
Selma: Hey what do you want
AYWalton: That's it? Hmm.....ok. I guess finding a descendant was a good thing.
Nadasue: I wonder what that building is that they're in
evpace: I'm glad he is delighted 'cause he was "hit by the brush"!
AYWalton: The TN sate archives? She looks familiar. who is that tall guy in the blue? a co-host?
AYWalton: welcome back Sonia!
evpace: Fox name is Quaker.
vkn: wb Sonia
Nadasue: Oh, I guess that makes sense. Was just wondering since I'll be in Nashville for the conference.
AYWalton: And he was a slave hunter as well. and a big time southerner.
vkn: wb wb sonia hold tight
evpace: I did not know that AY.
Sonia: Thx. Bounced out. Too bad they don't run DNA (I know Angela, snips and snaps :-)
AYWalton: http://tinyurl.com/ljbvwv7 lol hmm.........
Sonia: Hi Keli
keli1: Hi all, how is it, I am just getting in
AYWalton: it's ok.
Selma: I thought he said he wasn't..
Sonia: It's like a cooking show where everyone goes "ooh, aah."
AYWalton: quick snippets to tell people that yes they are or are not related to somebody famous.
dw: is high probability conclusive?
AYWalton: not sure what the Emmett guy is there for.
Nadasue: I have sooooo many ancestors who make me eligible for DAR -- too many to count. For some reason, I just haven't gotten to the point where I have a desire to join. I'm warmer to the idea now than I once was, but just still don't have a desire for it.
keli1: hmmmm....I am a Daughter!
evpace: Glad you are here keli1
AYWalton: I understand, Nadasue.
keli1: thanks evpace
AYWalton: So this is also a DNA reveal sort of.
evpace: Who did the DNA?
Sonia: Didn't say what test
AYWalton: no idea. me put it on Twitter. Josh is online.
Nadasue: keli1 Maybe we can talk about that at some point.
Sonia: Who's Josh?
keli1: I like Josh
Selma: Kinda folksy isn't it?
AYWalton: a bit.
keli1: Now I do like a bit of the history on the ancestors, that is like Pawn Stars format and Antique Roadshow, now you know she is related, cause they are highlighting him
AYWalton: something about cheering for Jesse James is kind of leery.
AYWalton: she was also a violent man and not kind towards people of color.
Selma: Smart woman
Nadasue: Wow, maybe I'll go there while in Nashville.
keli1: Nadasue are you attending the Oct conference?
AYWalton: wb Sonia.
Nadasue: Yes, I'll be there.
Sonia: Just a great big bouncing ball :-)
keli1: I will too, I hope to see you again..
AYWalton: genteel southern living...........
keli1: Okay, folks was it two people of color or more?
Nadasue: Oh, great, keli1! It will be nice to meet you!
AYWalton: several folks. and that's it? these snippets are too short. I guess they taped longer segments.
Sonia: Hopefully the family gets to have more in depth findings.
Nadasue: I agree!
AYWalton: but are crowing lots of folks into one episode. Nadasue we will have to get together and take a group photo.
keli1: yes we will...
Nadasue: Yes, that will be great. This will be my very first genealogy conference!
Sonia: The researchers will have to grow on me. I really like the History Detectives and I like that they only cover 3-4 segments in a show.
AYWalton: oh wonderful!
Nadasue: It's been years coming.
AYWalton: good lord, these folks were violent!
Selma: They sure were
AYWalton: that Hatfield and McCoy thing was not a peaceful thing.
Nadasue: No, not at all
AYWalton: welcome d.
Nadasue: Do you know Kenyatta, AYWalton ?
AYWalton: Yes, I know Kenyatta.

Nadasue: I can tell.
vkn: kenyatta is a long time one of us
Nadasue: Ah... Okay.
AYWalton: Oh..........a real connection there!
AYWalton: they must have had a real tight schedule for filming. I am not sure the role of the guy in the blue jacket.
Sonia: Big Smiler
keli1: do you remember how long it was when they starting doing the research, then filming, etc
AYWalton: I suppose. they were filming in the summer.
vkn: howdy johari
keli1: she looks Asian
AYWalton: Kenyatta was in St. Louis and then left to go for one of the filming for the Roadshow.
Nadasue: They passed me on 64 one day in their big .... thing Like an oversized Winnebego thing...lol
evpace: What happened to Skip Gate's series?
AYWalton: hello Joharimary welcome!
Selma: His show starts in OCT
AYWalton: evpace that will start next month.
