Chatters: alt, Daviss, Khathu, Selma, Seventies

Daviss: hi ther alt!!

alt: hey partner, thanks for the link.... did you get my email which I hope explains the connection with Mr. Wilson.

Daviss: No not yet alt, I was just in my email did you send this morn

alt: it is in my sent mail file... Yes, I sent it this morning.

Daviss: ok let me do a quick peep again

alt: it is under your subject of "Tree"

Daviss: ok got it!!! lol

alt: you need another sip of coffee? LOL

Daviss: wow alt thats great lol lol are you going to email him?

alt: I'm waiting for him to respond to my last contact..... I don't think he is really "into' genealogy.... I think he is one of those 'drive-by genealogist' that we've been talking about. LOL How does he connect to your ancestry?

Daviss: Its a low connect you know like 5-8 alt do you have any fants or faunts

alt: okay.... I think he doesn't show i mine because his 'tree' doesn't connect to all of the people he has listed .. and then some are missing, like he doesn't have the Adams/Crosswhite connection which is one way that we relate to each other. are those surnames fants or faunts?

Daviss: thats why I wonder if some folks just add names to their tree that sounds like they are related lol Yes surname heyyy Selma!!! How are you doing

alt: I believe that is the situation for some of those trees ... example... he has Lewis Adams & Sibbah Mastison just 'hanging' out there .... he also has a Giles & Susan Clay from Piqua, Ohio juts 'hangin' out there.

Selma: Afternoon alt and daviss

alt: Hi Selma, how you doing today?

Selma: Doing Ok ..nurse just left, vitals are good.. LOL

Daviss: Thats wonderful Selma!!

alt: Happy and glad to hear you have 'good vitals' LOL LOL

Selma: LOL

alt: Vicky just helped me break to code on an AncestryDNA connection Selma. And this guy is a connection to her ancestry LOL LOL

Selma: you and Daviss are connected?

Daviss: lol I wish Selma

alt: the guy doesn't even show up as a connection to me

Selma: "hanging out there" like low lying fruit alt

alt: he has a 'listing' on Ancestry that connects to some of my folks, but his 'tree' doesn't reflect the connection.

Daviss: alt saw how nice I was in Indiana so I think he needs to claim me as kin lol lol

Selma: LOL

alt: yep Vicky and don't you forget it either!!!!! LOL

Daviss: lol lol I am wondering if this guy works out of the country alt?

alt: Selma, I was telling Daviss that I think this guy is one of those 'drive-by' genealogist who is into collecting names and really doesn't follow up on how they may connect/relate to each other. His email response to me indicated he worked/traveled outside of the U.S. and his address also indicates he is in the DC beltway and a Government employee

Daviss: Ahhhh I see...mabe that is the reason he is slow to respond..mabe a new email will trigger him to respond alt

alt: you're trying to get me to do the follow-up ... sneaky, sneaky LOL LOL

Daviss: lol lol off topic, I bought 5 lottery tickets (scratch) no winners so I threw them away

Khathu: hello

alt: I was interviewed last nigh, along with a cousin for a newspaper article on our Adams Family Reunion plans for this upcoming Labor Day weekend.

Selma: Afternoon Khathu

Daviss: when I went to buy more of the same kind the guy behind the counter told me "dont forget to look on the back for another game"
