vkn: yes and is a Pritchard Alt

daviss: ok back

alt: ah so, okay... very pretty young lady!!! Khathu, I had to 'back off' of the FB thread on slave owner in Virginia

Khathu: lol .....

vkn: what is essence of thread alt and khathu

Khathu: I'm done as well. I don't know how many ways one can explain that methodology and strategies are required/necessary in doing slave era research

alt: too specific and then when you look at the page it was really a commercial for a research company

Khathu: and genealogy research in general

vkn: did you see the thread daviss

alt: 4 steps to finding the virginia slave owner vkn

vkn: ahhhh ok

daviss: yes vkn I have been reading it

Khathu: but is it mainly talking about using the online VA birth registry database.

alt: and when you 'read' it ,, the steps zero in on a record set that only applies for dates 1853-???? right Khathu

vkn: link me up daviss

alt: and the author was a "guest" contributor to this research company's commercial page.

vkn: I see

Khathu: I added that slave era research is more than online databases and the researcher need to seek out the original document and analyze it for accurarcy and that when the discussion when south

alt: our 'commentary' was not too appreciated by the author of the article vkn

vkn: oops lol

alt: appreciated=appreciative

Khathu: alt your's was fine. it was my comments that the author had issues with.

alt: that's cause you're a "square peg' trying to fit into a 'round hole' Khathu LOL LOL

Khathu: lol lol

vkn: lol

Khathu: and i am trying to get people to examine, analyze and correlate records which are not applicable to those using the VA birth registry

alt: yep... you're talking 'strategy' as G.W. Bush would say I wonder why do folks leave the impression that one record .. or record type, is the magic bullet to ALL of one's research

Khathu: i am starting to realize that there is a new breed of researchers that are only interested in doing online research because it is easy

alt: yep, I just saw one where this person says & then asks ... "I looked at the 1900 census record for my grt=grandma... it said she had 3 children and only 1 is alive .... what happened to the other 2? as if the 1900 census record is going to tell her all she wants to know about grt-grandma ...

daviss: see alt, thats what I was saying yesterday, some folks have no idea what to do

alt: yep daviss

daviss: and we need to give a gentle nudge without being sarcastic

Khathu: with the census it needs to be used as a guide especially since we don't know who the informant was

alt: and when you try to help them by asking a question then you come off as a "know-it-all' and are downplaying what they are attempting to do.

Khathu: i would agree with daviss, unfortunately most people want you to provide them with the answer

alt: it is a "kill the messenger' type of mentality ... and I'm tired of being killed LOL LOL

Khathu: so when you start asking questions and providing them with strategies you are ignored or seen as a know it all like alt said

alt: most of these guys are 'drive-by' genealogists and I 'be's' tired of being shot at LOL LOL

Khathu: lol lol

daviss: I think I said this before when I first started researching and came here to chat. I was intimidated by the answers given to me but I kept coming back until I was comfortable. I wasn't a drive by but really wanted to learn

alt: you took a licking and kept on ticking, huh daviss?

daviss: I learned over the years now who are users and who are sincere

alt: yep, there are givers & there are takers

vkn: amen amen

daviss: I remember when I was working and would email to my co workers in caps I was called into the office and was accused of being a hater

vkn: oops

daviss: I had no idea that Caps meant shouting and no one ever told me that was what it meant

alt: What's wrong with caps lol lol

daviss: all it took would have been a Hey Vicky so now I think I have developed a kind of sympathy for some because of that experience in all avenues of my life

vkn: hey vicky lol lol lol

alt: You're just a caring type person daviss

daviss: Like here on the forum, all it takes is wishing those good luck in their research when it comes to that point when they become users and takers

alt: yep.. good luck & good

daviss: now thats my story and I am sticking to it :?

alt: hang in there partner!!!!!

daviss: oh I am cool now partner lol
