daviss: So I also guess you have given up the radio stint to seventies
Spivey: Hi 3rdthawkins!
Seventies Soulchild: LOL oh yes!
daviss: hello 3rd
vkn: On FELDER Spivey they seem to have been originally rooted in the Montgomery AL area starting with Isaac
Seventies Soulchild: I've gotten a response from someone who is searching for Burwell Lanier in AL on Genealogywise.
Spivey: I never traced them back beyond Elloree South Carolina.
vkn: On FELDER Spivey they seem to have been originally rooted in the Montgomery AL area starting with Isaac then moved to the Jacksonville Frenandina FL ST Marys GA area
Seventies Soulchild: Here I thought that lead was dead.
daviss: pops up at the greatest of times huh seventies
Seventies Soulchild: Yes, since I put it out there that I was going to start researching my AL family, now things are popping up.
Spivey: I don't even have an Isaac Felder in my immediate line, vkn. I have Isaiah but no Isaac.
Seventies Soulchild: Now I have to figure out how I'm going to do this line. . .
alt: once posted to the 'Net they almost never die Seventies Soulchild.I'm receiving messages to postings that have been out there for 8 to 10 years.
vkn: I see thought you were seeking an Abram or Abraham
Seventies Soulchild: Oh wow.
vkn: Me too alt
Spivey: Yes, vkn. Abraham Felder [Abe or Ham] was my daughter's great grandfather.
vkn: Was he SC AL or GA?
Seventies Soulchild: speaking on 8 to 10 yrs... I still don't have a video of my presentation in washington dc. . . I'm getting a little bothered about this.
3rdthawkins: Seventies Soulchild alt that was my main thinking, something has to spark someone to search, you have to post, you never know who is searching, something happens to spark a person to search, even if not for genealogical reasons,
alt: new folks just dtaring their research and folks who have let the research slip for a few years.
Seventies Soulchild: right.
3rdthawkins: even if it takes 10 years
Spivey: South Carolina vkn, but other states are not to be discounted. He was Jewish and I think did at one time live in Florida.
Seventies Soulchild: In addition to that now, the real family genealogist Gwen is asking me to write a short book about the family history.
3rdthawkins: unfortunately for me, some people have passed that had posted messages 10 years before
alt: yup, we can't all be at the same place/level of research at the same time.
Seventies Soulchild: Hello Selma
alt: hello Selma
Spivey: Hi Selma!
3rdthawkins: hello Selma
Selma: Good Thursday afternoon everyone...
alt: Seventies Soulchild family history or genealogy? and is this just one ancestral line Gwen is asking for?
Seventies Soulchild: Well this would be my Washington and Rounds ancestors. Two lines
alt: are they connected lines?
Selma: Congrats on getting the photos seventies
Seventies Soulchild: yes, by marriage. Great grandfather Will Washington married Alice Rounds. . . Tracing Rounds and Washington ancestors thanks Selma
alt: so it would be Will & Alice (Rounds) Washington descendants, right?
Seventies Soulchild: yes that would be me... Also doing their ancestors.
Selma: Seventies the current issue of the Journal of AA History has an article on AFricans in Mexico
Seventies Soulchild: Oh I'll have to go to the page. . .
vkn: That is Alvas topic Selma
Seventies Soulchild: Thanks Selma
Selma: What is Alva's topic
vkn: Black Mexicans
alt: So owuldn't a narrative history of their des. generated by your gen software work for the descenadants with you findings on their ancestral lines work as a "book"?
Selma: Oh I didn't know that vkn She might want to take alook at the article too
vkn: Yes selma she has written a bit about it
Seventies Soulchild: Yes. I wouldn't mind fleshing the 'book' out with some stories.
AYWalton: Good afternoon, all.
alt: hello AYWalton
Seventies Soulchild: Hello AYWalton
Spivey: Hi AYWalton!

Selma: Afternoon AY
AYWalton: Selma does that article in the Journal have info on the folks in Vera Cruz or the Costa Chica folks or both?
3rdthawkins: hey Ay
alt: careful with the 'oral history' Seventies Soulchild... Document it as best you can, fiction takes on a life of it's own and is very hard to 'undo'/
Seventies Soulchild: I tread on that very carefully. but these stories have some good leads. Some of I've been able to prove.
alt: excellent work on Afro-mexicans here on Bennie's site.... http://www.lwfaah.net/cent_amer/central_america.htm

AYWalton: Two of the links don't work, but the first and last are working well, alt.

AYWalton: I don't know that story, daviss.
Spivey: Bye vkn.
daviss: Its something that she has been working on for quite awhile.
Selma: I am looking for the darn journal AY... Good grief right in front of me The title is

Selma: The Longue Duree of AFricans in Mexico: The Historiography of Racialization, Acculturation, and AFro Mexican Subjectivity

Selma: Written for other historians to read, cause too academic for me..but they had some interesting footnotes..you know I am into footnotes
daviss: hello keli1
