Seventies Soulchild: I haven't looked into them, the white Laniers, in depth.

alt: why is that 3rdthawkins?

Selma: daviss computer still out?

freeaainnc: why back at square one?

3rdthawkins: just won't be able to alt

vkn: Yes it is Selma She thinks it died

Selma: Ugh....

alt: okay 3rdthawkins, I'll leave it at that.

Selma: tell her I sympathize

3rdthawkins: because freeaainnc, I need to find a way to get information on my great grandmother's parents to find them in 1930 and before

vkn: will do

alt: me too vln... best wishes to daviss

3rdthawkins: I'm back at the drawing board trying to figure a way to get information for them

freeaainnc: oh, ok

3rdthawkins: can't say I didn't try, so this is a brick wall for me boy, you all are quiet

alt: go over what you have and where you've looked 3rdthawkins ... I'm sure there are areas you may have overloooked.

3rdthawkins: alt, I have nothing to look over

freeaainnc: do you have names?

3rdthawkins: yes

freeaainnc: have you been able to find them in the census?

alt: well, put her in a context/time frame by age and look at what records are available 3rdthawkins

3rdthawkins: nope, that's the reason why I'm trying to get the records I need free, can't find them in 1930 or prior she should be 10 years old in 1920 I'm positive she's white

freeaainnc: name change possibly? have you looked just for first names and not adding last names?

alt: and where would she be located at that time 3rdthawkins?

3rdthawkins: either Virginia (her birthplace) alt or New York yes free, tried everything I think I want to narrow it down to Queens Co. since that's where she and my gr gf was living in 1930

alt: dunno 3rdthawkins, there aren't a lot of white Jefferson's or Washingtion's .. serioulsy.

Seventies Soulchild: Ok well I'm going to get the heck out of here. Y'all have a good day!

3rdthawkins: I know, you're right about that

freeaainnc: lunch break is over, I need to get going. bye

vkn: Does "positive" mean family lore 3rdthawkins or is there a document? Also is there a timeline in relation and location spread sheeted with your total research ?

3rdthawkins: vkn, my gr gf passed for white

alt: great questions vkn. her father? is he documented as 'white"?

3rdthawkins: nope my grandmother's father is always listed as negro or colored

alt: and his surname is?

3rdthawkins: Hawkins

alt: where does Jefferson come into play?

3rdthawkins: remember, my grandparents were 1st cousins, my grandmother's father is the brother of my grandfather's father.........alt, Jefferson is my grandmother's mother

alt: and you're looking for Jefferson's, right?

3rdthawkins: yep

alt: so what Jefferson's have you checked out as prospects for you gmother's Jefferson family? and where? when?

3rdthawkins: New York and Virginia alt, but I just don't know where to look....I found one Mada Ruth Jefferson living in Texas in 1920, I tried a lot of names, I'm just too overwhelmed to look, I try to write down what I Find. I mostly found black families with father James and mother Roxianna's or Roxey

alt: Selma.. Tiger plays Today in the Firestone @ Akron.

Selma: yes I know alt..

alt: t-Time is like 1:45 or so takes time 3rdthawkins .. and you have the 'skills'..

3rdthawkins: even checking to see if they may have come overseas, since they were Irish, record says VA as birthplace, but still checking

vkn: Sometimes it is necessary to take a break 3rd and review all of the prior research in context and make a search plan

AYWalton: Good afternoon, all.

3rdthawkins: hiring the genealogist was my plan vkn lol but no, I do have some back up plans though

Selma: Afternoon AY..wassup up? My leg

AYWalton: (keep that foot up, Selma! Resist all urges to do the Electric Slide.)

vkn: I see so need to have a redirect to plan B and C

alt: plan, that's the key 3rdthawkins, like vkn says.. write down what you know, don't know & what you're looking for on a timeline for grandma..

3rdthawkins: yeah vkn

Selma: How long does Anita have to stay off her foot alt? Did you get what I emailed yesterday the Patrol?

AYWalton: yes, I got it Selma! Quite interesting indeed!

Selma: Appears that alt is gone AYAYWalton ..but I remember him AY

3rdthawkins: Police Academy

AYWalton: Ooops you are right, I didn't notice. yes he was in that film, too.

3rdthawkins: was shocked to hear that

vkn: I was fascinated with the history of silk and the civilizations that just disappeared but left standing cities or settlements Yes I saw the Smith death on news

AYWalton: about to run some errands, though. before it rains---scattered thunderstorms in the area.
