Seventies Soulchild: I recieved a message from footnote about this new Ancestry Footnote merger.

daviss: lol it comes and goes in spurts I guess

Selma: I have been reading the document posted on the Genealogy and History forum..interesting

yatah: yes hit ground about 3 inch then melt

Selma: I just want to know if I paid for I get a discount

daviss: yes, Selma the one Mel posted

AYWalton: yes the merger was last week. So far no major changes on Footnote, thank goodness.

alt: very interesting Selma.. seems as if some folks have broken the 'code'

Selma: Really..I didn't check this AM. is it on the board

daviss: I think it was Richard and Toni Carrier

3rdthawkins: I got it in email

alt: I saw the code breaking stuff on Facebook Selma

Seventies Soulchild: Well they plan on taking some documents from ancestry to put on footnote. I'm going to have to remove a few docs... lol So what was the letter about?

Selma: Oh breaking news on Facebook... Does this mean I have to sign up.. lOL

3rdthawkins: did they say that Seventies Soulchild?

AYWalton: Ah it was in code! No wonder I would not decipher it! the letter is also on AfriGeneas, but I just see that Toni posted the code.

alt: I guess Selma.. FB seems to be 'where it's at' LOL

Seventies Soulchild: Yes they did in the message I received

yatah: what break news on facebook ?

Seventies Soulchild: lol ah yeah alt! lol

daviss: 1 = a b = 2 etc

3rdthawkins: wow, didnt' know that, they just said it was a merger, man!

AYWalton: that is interesting.

Seventies Soulchild: well yes they will be merging records! lol Footnote is going to be the 'better' site now... lol

daviss: especially how long ago that letter was

Selma: Is this at Afrigeneas FB page

alt: the companies 'mergered', ot footnote was bought by ancestry, but nothing yet happening on the 'information' being 'merged"

daviss: its is also on afrigeneas selma

3rdthawkins: lol ok Seventies

alt: ot=or

Selma: I don't see the code daviss..

daviss: hold on

AYWalton: Selma are you on FB?

Selma: No

Seventies Soulchild: ok let me check fb. because nothing is transcribed on afrigeneas

3rdthawkins: just keep the SC Estate and Bill of Sales Free, I know that's hard for t odo

AYWalton: This is from Richard Schaefer on FB: 1=a 2=e 3=i 4=o and 5 = u a lot of the words make sense, seems like 7 = m and 8 = n 9 = r ‚Äé6 = L

daviss: oops wrong again selma lol I must have afrigeneas forums on the brain

AYWalton: Toni Carrier from LCAfricana translated one of the lines:

daviss: I need a break

AYWalton: he cant doe eny thing I told him we had some potatoes and salt...

Seventies Soulchild: me too daviss

AYWalton: I see that the Maya Angelou papers are going to the Schomburg.

Seventies Soulchild: yep

daviss: amazing for 1860 isn't it saw that AYWalton. really nice donation

AYWalton: that is great! and to know that her papers will be cared for at a black institution is also wonderful. even though Schomburg is part of NY Public Library, Schomburg is black focused, so that's a good thing.

Seventies Soulchild: ok I've chatted long enough. I need to get out of this sauna of an office for a few minutes. Talk to y'all later. :)

alt: yeah, that surprises me AYWalton, doesn't Maya Angelou have some type of emeritus status with some prestigious (sp) "white' university?

daviss: Is she a NY'er

AYWalton: yes, she works (or worked) at Wake Forest. and still lives in No. Carolina.

alt: locally, history & genealogy I posted about an artilce from my hometown on the Afrigeneas Sates Forum .. a little history and a couple of photos.

AYWalton: I think leaving her papers at Schomburg was better than leaving them at Wake Forest--though it is a very good school, mind you.

3rdthawkins: yeah, good article and photos Sonny boy

AYWalton: I shall take a look at your post, alt.

Selma: Good grief I have at least 50 or more folks who want to be my friend


3rdthawkins: wow, famous aren't you Selma

Selma: Apparently I was already a member...

AYWalton: LOL, choose your friends wisely Selma.

3rdthawkins: or are you like my mother and just don't check your friend requests

AYWalton: You don't have to connect with all of them.

Selma: Do I just ignore the folks I want to ignore

AYWalton: half of them probably don't know you, and vice versa. LOL

alt: watch it 3rdthawkins, you gotta be over 65 y/o to call me Sonny-boy LOL

3rdthawkins: lol ok alt rotfl yes you can ignore them Selma, I do anyway, some of them re-request me

Selma: I see you alt what a "cute" picture

AYWalton: alt has anything ever been written about the actual settlement of the Randolph slaves in Ohio? About their lives and how they survived?

alt: Much AYWalton

AYWalton: is there a major book about them? I wonder if the Trents were among them? Not sure exactly where Piqua OH, is located.

Selma: One of them is my daughter in law.. LOL

alt: perhaps not a MAJOR book, but many articles and a couple of books about 30 miles north of Dayton, Ohio & 50 miles west of Columbus, Ohio AYWalton

3rdthawkins: I wonder how long that request been there Selma, she's probably wondering now, gotta show her some love so she don't think you don't want to be her "friend" lol

Selma: One of my son's is there too... LOL Too much communitcation for me...LOL

3rdthawkins: well, they could call Selma lol

alt: AYWalton, the Randolph manumission was among the 3-4 largest in the history of the U.S. rivaled anly by King Carter & Samuel Gist, who freed between 400-500 slaves in one 'Act'.. Randolph had about 380-385.

Selma: There was another person who emancipated a large number of slaves that went to Ohio..his name was GIST I believe

alt: right Selma

AYWalton: Yes, I have often read about the manumission, but a large book about the effects of freedom, and relocation upon their lives would be indeed interesting to read.

Selma: There is a book on the Gist my library...

alt: and many of the King Carter slaves settled in Ohio.

daviss: Gist! my sisters God parents are named Gist.

AYWalton: Ohio was an interesting place, indeed!

alt: is that right daviss

Selma: I made a copy of the intro in the is around here somewhere

daviss: I am not sure where they are from but my stepfather and he were both stationed in Okinawa together but were friends before that

AYWalton: Gist was also Virginia, right?

Selma: Yes

alt: you have to remember in 1803 when Ohio came into the union slavery, in some form, was still legal in every other State in the Union.

AYWalton: that name is found in early MD, as well.

Selma: Oh, oh...I just got a message that someone posted on my wall on FB, what does that mean

AYWalton: someone sent you a message.

daviss: lol go up to your message and read it selma

alt: hhehehehe @ Selma

3rdthawkins: that someone posted a message on your wall

AYWalton: Your email is sometimes the notation. Lots of FB stuff is silly fluff, like all of the games that folks play.

Selma: I have a Wall...see I told you all it is too much communication

daviss: thats right aywalton

AYWalton: I could not care that you have won $5 million dollars in a fantasy poker game. so ignore the fluff and apply it to the real world you live in.

alt: FB used properly is a GREAT tool Selma

daviss: me either AYWalton or plant a garden

AYWalton: I know, or send out teddy bear hugs.

daviss: but....I do need my soulful songs lol lol lol

3rdthawkins: but I do enjoy seeing photos and vidoes of my grandniece though Aywalton and daviss and keep tabs on my nephew who seems like he's going rogue lol

AYWalton: wb Soulchile.

3rdthawkins: wb SS

Seventies Soulchild: hey

daviss: yatah are you on facebook? wb seventies

yatah: yea but rently sign off

daviss: awesome

AYWalton: did your office cool off, SoulChile?

alt: an example of the 'misuse' of social networking and the power of FB, Twitter, cell phones, etc. is the massive number of votes being submitted that keeps Sarah Palin's daughter alive as a contestant on 'Dancing With the Stars".

Seventies Soulchild: lol no...

AYWalton: so glad that I don't watch that program, alt.

Seventies Soulchild: me too AYWalton

Selma: I agree alt...

Seventies Soulchild: Well sometimes with the good comes the bad.

3rdthawkins: preach it Seventies lol

alt: Yes 3rdthawkins, in the same manner as the GPO buying up thousands of books that make right-wing nonsense by Bill O'Rielly and others Best Sellers

daviss: thats the way of the world seventies...or the bitter with the sweet

3rdthawkins: alt I thought that misuse was applied to Amer. Idol

alt: GPO=GOP

Seventies Soulchild: Who watches sorry old American Idol anymore! lol

alt: it's a newer form of 'stuffing the ballot box'

yatah: i better go now bye

Selma: Ok what is the confirm the information you share button

daviss: bye yatah

Seventies Soulchild: I quit after about 1.5 seasons... lol

yatah: bye all

Selma: Bye yatah

3rdthawkins: I never really watched it, unless my mother wanted me to record it, but that's over so I dont' watch it I really hate the audition, because it seems they just want to show the bad singers, I think they should have made it professional and actually show the ones who could sing, but I guess that wouldn't make for good TV

daviss: It was a great tool in 2007 with the get out to vote theme

3rdthawkins: the Hollywood part is better where they actually compete I enjoy that part

alt: you bet daviss, it is and can be a great tool

Seventies Soulchild: ok I turned away for a moment, what just happened? lol

daviss: remain focused seventies

Seventies Soulchild: LOL I can't I'm sweating all over my face.. lol

daviss: lol @ seventies

Seventies Soulchild: My cold drink is sweating AND my hot sandwich is sweating too.. lol

daviss: I am in hopes that the power of the vote will turn on my Gov this tues

Seventies Soulchild: hammercy

daviss: rather Arizona's Gov

Seventies Soulchild: I hope so too. Please encourage the people in your community to get out and vote! The consequences will be TERRIBLE if we don't!

daviss: been doing that for years seventies

AYWalton: Been getting TONS of get out the vote messages everywhere. Problem is---everyone whom I know, and with whom I associate, are voters.

alt: the 'danger' of the Internet.. yo see where the person who wrote the book on Confederate Black Soldier's stated that ALL of her supporting documentation for the book came from the Internet.

3rdthawkins: One of my nephews on FB said he got in a heated political debate with his professor, apparently about Obama since the prof made comments

daviss: sad isn't it alt!

AYWalton: so glad that book is being pulled, alt.

Seventies Soulchild: I saw that too alt. Melvin posted it.

AYWalton: and the myth is being exposed for what it is---an SCV creation. thank goodness!

Seventies Soulchild: What doesn't surprise me though is that slaves were sent out to the battlefield to be SLAVES.

Selma: Think I got lost in FB

daviss: wonder how many rogue books are out there that the school already distributed AYWalton

AYWalton: probably tons.

Seventies Soulchild: That's why you have to teach it at home.

alt: LOL @ Selma... that's not hard to do.. get lost in FB LOL

3rdthawkins: happens to us all Selma at one point or another

Seventies Soulchild: I never get lost in FB.... lol

AYWalton: but the woman's credibility as an author and "researcher" was been outed as well, thank goodness!

alt: yes AYWalton

daviss: agree AYWalton

Selma: I want to know who was on the committee who approved the book in the first place

alt: your fellow Virginian's Selma LOL

Seventies Soulchild: A couple of elementary school teachers.. lol

alt: and it ain't funny

AYWalton: 3 school teachers, they said. and probably good ole gal Virginians.

daviss: probably the same ones that changed the Texas school books to suit themselves lol

Selma: Yes, I have a spy out looking for them for me

daviss: I dont think they said the names on that CNN article Selma

AYWalton: all on the same, team.

alt: it's like Selma said about the Governor and his apology... you can't 'unring the bell' once it's out ther it is out there

Seventies Soulchild: yep.. I swear I don't ever want to live in the times like my parents and grandparents lived....

daviss: but seventies don't you know thats where they want to take us back :?

alt: watch it Seventies Soulchild, you're talking about my growing up years.. LOL

AYWalton: well folks I have to leave. Have a great day everyone.

Seventies Soulchild: sorry alt! :}

Selma: Yep..I gotta run too folks...have a great day

Seventies Soulchild: But I get mad now if people see me walking down the sidewalk and stay right in the middle of it... They get a bit of that NY attitude

alt: no problem Seventies Soulchild, but if you youngsters aren't vigilant.. its back to that.

daviss: talks about the 14th amendment, the Texas Gov and his wanting get out ceceed can I spell

alt: you can spell LOL

daviss: lol

Seventies Soulchild: Exactly. Did you hear about the AL state senator who is campaigning that whites want to see us back in the cotton fields? lol I was like, hey, that's my man! 23rd cong dist. of AL

alt: well, I gotta run too. laters y'all

daviss: oh I saw that seventies

3rdthawkins: a good post by Jari on passing on the Creole Board

daviss: It was terrible

Seventies Soulchild:

Seventies Soulchild: where did 3rd go??? Right

daviss: With his "Don't Tread on Me" shirt on button rather

Seventies Soulchild: I'm looking up the link to that article.

daviss: I listened to the lady on MSNBC last night and she may sue

Seventies Soulchild: Yes they have those stupid signs up all over town here. I think that the mayor made them take them down in the city parking lot I hope so. Great opportunity for propaganda...

daviss: and the sad part is some of these creeps may get elected

Seventies Soulchild: I hope not. . .

daviss: me too

Seventies Soulchild: Goodbye all

daviss: talk to you later seventies
