AmosNY: I did enjoy it. I found out that my paternal grandmother married again after my grandfather passed away.

alt: was she still of child-bearing age at the time of his death? other children? or a step-family?

AmosNY: I don't know. I haven't run across any family from the second marriage.

alt: okay, why do we ask those questions when someone has just found 'new' information? LOL lOL lOL and haven't had time to research any deeper into their newly found information

AYWalton: you mean the child bearing age question, alt?

alt: any of those questions AYWalton

AmosNY: I lost the souvenir program so I have to contact my cousin in Birmingham.

AYWalton: I would think that there might be a possibility of other children/siblings/relatives to find.

AmosNY: She was born in 1855 so I don't think there were other children.

alt: yes, I know.... I was thinking in terms of 'give me a chance to understand what I've found before asking things I haven't had the time to research'.

AmosNY: She died in 1939.

AYWalton: that is part of the same process.

alt: I guess so AYWalton

alt: Hello Seventies Soulchild , good evening

Seventies Soulchild: hi alt, AmosNY, AYWalton, deannie, Selma. How is everyone tonight?

AmosNY: Hi SeventiesSoulchild.

Selma: Interesting post by sharon sutton (seraph?) on FBI records

AYWalton: doing good and you, Soulchile?

deannie: Hi Seventies

Seventies Soulchild: Doing great!

alt: yes it was Selma .. didn't know they were available. guess they're now open under the FOIA

Seventies Soulchild: Yes, I posted something on the FOIA laws recently. They are now doing the open government act. So they are trying to get more info out to those who request.

AYWalton: where was the post?

Selma: I forget which Forum...Soulchile probably knows

Seventies Soulchild: In the History and Genealogy forum... screen locked. sorry Since she brought up the topic, I recall visitng Hyde Park (FDR) and looking at the records stored there from his administration. There was a lot of spying going on of the black population at that time... several prominent people were mentioned, A philip Randolph was one who stood out. I wouldn't have considered the Pres libraries as resource or even the FBI. That was a good find on Sharon's part.

alt: I would imagine Seventies Soulchild, since he was the big mover & shaker behind the Labor movement and the fed employment act.

AYWalton: which Forum is the thread in, SoulChile? I don't think I have seen it.

Selma: Her family was very active in politics and civil rights

alt: for sure Selma fair employment act

Seventies Soulchild: Pulling it now AYWalton.

AYWalton: ok
