daviss: spill khathu!
ProfessorDru: There's one next month, Vicky, Nov. 12-13
khathu: I peeked in while you were conducting your session
alt: hello khathu
khathu: my excitement is over something silly - the Chancellor of DC Public Schools has resigned
ProfessorDru: oh you did, Khatu--you should have interrupted.
AYWalton: so was she not well liked khathu? I keep reading mixed things about her.
Seventies Soulchild: YAY! I figured that was going to happen khathu.
alt: now to just hear from the SRT, huh khathu?
daviss: can you email me the info Professor Dru . Mabe I can get one of my new found cousins to come
3rdthawkins: really Khathu? hmm
khathu: Not by low-income, working class, and low middle income parents
daviss: I saw that on CNN this morning Khathu
AYWalton: one of your Atlanta cousins, daviss? what was the concern with her, khathu?
daviss: yes AYWalton
AYWalton: are they interested in family history, now that you have inspired them, daviss?
khathu: she was elitist and catered to the needs and concerns of affluent majority white parents
AYWalton: is that right?
3rdthawkins: my grandparents would have loved her
daviss: lol AYWalton, mabe this will be a test
AYWalton: that's interesting. How did they come out in terms of her educational policies, khathu?
khathu: i am not clear on your question
AYWalton: sorry I did not word that well.
Seventies Soulchild: brb working through 'lunch' lol
daviss: The person who was under her Khathu is taking her place so will things change?
AYWalton: How did her elitism show up in what she was doing on her job? Did she have certain policies that had gotten people upset?
ProfessorDru: alt, this is all I posted so far. Keep checking back. http://professordru.blogspot.com/p/voice-technology.html
khathu: AYWalton - she would have private meeting with the affluent parents at dinner parties and meet with the other parents at the school. However, her decision were based on the needs and concerns addressed at the private meetings
AYWalton: whoa ProfessorDru has a brand new bag!!!
ProfessorDru: vicky, www.familyhistoryexpo.com
AYWalton: love the new blog!
alt: bookmarked it ProfessorDru.. the tech blog.. thanks
ProfessorDru: what Angela, the Professor Dru blog--if so this was my first blog before the Find Your Folks one.
daviss: thanks Dru
alt: putting 'voice' to documents sounds very intriguing ProfessorDru
khathu: Overall she was not qualified for the job despite all the media attention she gained
AYWalton: I did not know that, Dru.
Spivey: AYWalton! I was at an Internet genealogy chat yesterday on PodCasts and you and one other person were mentioned for yours that are on the IPod broadcast system. Congratulations!
3rdthawkins: was she black or white?
daviss: neither 3rd
3rdthawkins: hmm, interesting
ProfessorDru: I changed the look and added some pages.
AYWalton: that is nice to know Spivey. Thanks.
khathu: daviss - Kaya Henderson's style is different from Rhee both they share the same philosophy
daviss: I see
khathu: who 3rd?
Spivey: You're welcome AYWalton. I just had to let you know so that you're aware folks are out there looking.
3rdthawkins: the lady you were talking about, but daviss answered it

3rdthawkins: my fingers wants to give your name a different and new spelling every time I try to type it
Seventies Soulchild: Hi Selma
AYWalton: Greetings Ms. Selma!!!
khathu: Hello Selma
daviss: Hello Ms Sel!!
alt: I 'looked' at GenWise chat's one time, didn't sound exciting so I left and haven't been back.
Selma: You should have stayed alt..and livened it up.. LOL
alt: I guess Selma, but they were a little too far out there for me.
Selma: What were they talking about
alt: it was a Pocohontas, Charlemagne & Mayflower conversation.... with no details LOL
Seventies Soulchild: I tip in every once in a while alt and they are rather boring. Nope no details and definitely don't talk about anything other than white genealogy without any techniques... lol lol lol
Selma: Oh Ok the usual...I have been thru those conversations at conferences..e
Seventies Soulchild: ok what I make a comment and everyone gets all quiet? lol
3rdthawkins: #17 folks yep Seventies
ProfessorDru: gotta run
Selma: Some of the best meetings I have been to..they have not mentioned black folks..and I didn't go there for that..but these folks had great info on records, sources etc
3rdthawkins: true Selma, it is always good to meet others who research their own, and you learn a lot
alt: yes Selma, I've found that to be true at those 'white' conferences/workshops I've been to... the sessions are usually great & very informative.
daviss: no way getting over that here in AZ Selma because the few that I have been to the AA presence has been no more than 3
Selma: Most of these sessions were done by folks who have been researching for 30 or more years...
daviss: and those two came with me lol
khathu: have a good one
Selma: Char Bah and I use to be the only one of us at some of these meetings..but it is better now
3rdthawkins: lol daviss
alt: right Selma and the session are mostly about 'process' and not personal genealogies
Seventies Soulchild: bye y'all gotta get back on the grind.
Selma: Yes, process, records, where to find them, how to use them, understand them,
3rdthawkins: I more perfer chatting with the white genealogists I do chat with because they emphasis chat to genealogy and not personal talk
daviss: It has been a little while since I have been but I hope that things have changed in that regard here
3rdthawkins: they actually help people
daviss: where is that chat so I can get in on it 3rd mabe even just to listen
3rdthawkins: I will email you daviss
daviss: ok thx
alt: oh, I see where Megan Smolenyak is gonna be in KY this Friday at the African Heritage Center in Louisville.
daviss: Have you heard her alt
Selma: I missed her when she came here 2 years ago
alt: yes daviss, and she is GOOD!!!!
Selma: 17th miner rescued...16 more to go
daviss: I think Seraph said that she was alt. She saw her in Dallas very exciting Selma
alt: I've had a couple of DNA discussions with her. we're DNA cousins,, both Y & mtDNA LOL LOL
Selma: YOu should have invited her to your reunion...she probably would have come
alt: hehehehehe @Selma The Adams reunion is not in my direct Y or mtDNA lineage Selma
daviss: then they had Palin and Obama hooked up as 10th cousins this morning on CNN alt
3rdthawkins: I saw that mentioned on Yahoo daviss crazy
daviss: that should make her ratings fall lol lol
Selma: On his Daddy's side
alt: I saw that daviss, not too far-fetched.. a 10th cousin goes back how many generations? 8 maybe Lol @ Selma
daviss: dunno alt about the 8 generations
alt: 1-2-4-8-16-32-64-128-256-512-1024-2048-4096 .. okay maybe 13-16 generations
daviss: lol whew!
Selma: Have you all been following the Dutch Liggons thread?
alt: and then their collateral connections yes Selma
daviss: I have Selma and I tried finding him. I am wondering if that is a nickname
alt: gotta be daviss .. a nickname
daviss: They are all clumped together in 70 hard to imagine him not being there
Selma: Thats what think..I did find CAIN in 1870..she does not be seem to be taking notice of the other Liggons around him It is possible he just was not counted...
3rdthawkins: hello Ingrid
daviss: gobs of them Sel
Ingrid_Doweary: Hey Everyone!
alt: exactly Selma...
Spivey: Hi Ingrid_Doweary!
daviss: even going back several pages in fact, I went through all 22 pages Selma hello Ingrid
alt: or mis-indexed in 1930 is he "Scoggans" or something as a 90 y/o with his daughter in Indy?
daviss: yes alt!
alt: Hello Ingrid
Selma: Hello INgrid
daviss: my grandfathers nickname for my mother was "Dutch"
3rdthawkins: my brother was keeping a dog named Dutch
daviss: and her name was Zepher
alt: when found in 1880 he has an 8 y/o child born in MS so he may have even been in MS as early as 1870... mis-indexed, or as Selma is saying ' not counted"
daviss: I still think he is one of those in 1870 alt
Selma: I think that they were probably slaves born in NC and either taken or sold to MS
daviss: instead of indentured
alt: me too daviss.. he's about 30 y/o so certainly should be out on his own by then.
Selma: Yes..if you track the ages of the children in 1880..you can approximate when they might have arrived
daviss: The white Loggins are on the same page
alt: me too Selma
alt: we found him buried in Indianapolis for her.
Selma: Has she sent for the death certificate
alt: dunno Selma
Selma: When does MS start keeping birth and death and marriage records
daviss: I dunno I don't know lol
Selma: Thats OK I will google
alt: he is buried in Crown Hill Cemetery in Indy
daviss: I was hesitant to answer her post because I wanted to look at little further
daviss: I reread it her post. She said he was born in NC but also that he came over as indentured from Germany
Selma: That is her oral history daviss
alt: yep, came from Germany, but all census records say born in North Carolina. possibly mean his parent(s) came from Germany as indentured servants
Selma: Then she would find them identified on the census if that was the case alt
alt: Selam like the Harvard folks we think is a generation off in her calcualtions
daviss: Cain is listed as MU
alt: one would think Selma .. 'white' Loggins somewhere in the Carolina's ca 1840-1870 or so maybe even earlier
Selma: Loggins surname only appears for 1 person in Barnetta's Book
daviss: was it Henry Selma
alt: NC is a big State and she doesn't give a clue as to possibly what county in NC they could have been located.
Selma: Hold on
alt: and as JE used to remind us there was a heavy concentration of Germans settled in NC.
Selma: Need to get my other glasses...it is so sa
alt: that came down to NC from PA .. another indentured possibility.
daviss: The Loggins that is up above Cain in 70 was born in Tn
alt: and TN & NC are bordering States
daviss: but there is a 85 yo female born in NC \mabe she is the mother of the owner
Selma: She is going to have to follow the migration of the folks that appear on 1870 and 1880 But the 85 year old would not appear in Barnetta's book There is a Marriet Loggins with a Burrell Mendenhall together since 1846
daviss: no but I am thinking one of those families listed below would be
Selma: in Guilford You mean migrating after the War Oh I just read what you wrote daviss
alt: I believe she has only been searching census records, probably needs to expand to other types of records too... like why is he with a widowed daughter in Indy in 1930 when he was still in MS in 1920?
daviss: agreed alt
Selma: She probably should be focusing on the 1900 - 1930 time frame at this point
alt: and he is 90 y/o in 1930 .. gotta be some kind of paper trail over 90 years.
daviss: well, gotta run folks have a nice day
Ingrid_Doweary: Bye Daviss
daviss: bye Ms Silent Ingrid lol
Selma: I guess I better run too...have a great day
daviss: later folks!
Spivey: Bye daviss! Bye everyone! Have a good day!
alt: laters 3rd & Ingrid
Ingrid_Doweary: Oh well chat with you next time 3rd. Happy hunting, Bye
