daviss: So I also guess you have given up the radio stint to seventies

Spivey: Hi 3rdthawkins!

Seventies Soulchild: LOL oh yes!

daviss: hello 3rd

vkn: On FELDER Spivey they seem to have been originally rooted in the Montgomery AL area starting with Isaac

Spivey: Huh?

Seventies Soulchild: I've gotten a response from someone who is searching for Burwell Lanier in AL on Genealogywise.

Spivey: I never traced them back beyond Elloree South Carolina.

vkn: On FELDER Spivey they seem to have been originally rooted in the Montgomery AL area starting with Isaac then moved to the Jacksonville Frenandina FL ST Marys GA area

Seventies Soulchild: Here I thought that lead was dead.

daviss: pops up at the greatest of times huh seventies

Seventies Soulchild: Yes, since I put it out there that I was going to start researching my AL family, now things are popping up.

Spivey: I don't even have an Isaac Felder in my immediate line, vkn. I have Isaiah but no Isaac.

Seventies Soulchild: Now I have to figure out how I'm going to do this line. . .

alt: once posted to the 'Net they almost never die Seventies Soulchild.I'm receiving messages to postings that have been out there for 8 to 10 years.

vkn: I see thought you were seeking an Abram or Abraham

Seventies Soulchild: Oh wow.

vkn: Me too alt

Spivey: Yes, vkn. Abraham Felder [Abe or Ham] was my daughter's great grandfather.

vkn: Was he SC AL or GA?

Seventies Soulchild: speaking on 8 to 10 yrs... I still don't have a video of my presentation in washington dc. . . I'm getting a little bothered about this.

3rdthawkins: Seventies Soulchild alt that was my main thinking, something has to spark someone to search, you have to post, you never know who is searching, something happens to spark a person to search, even if not for genealogical reasons,

alt: new folks just dtaring their research and folks who have let the research slip for a few years.

Seventies Soulchild: right.

3rdthawkins: even if it takes 10 years

Spivey: South Carolina vkn, but other states are not to be discounted. He was Jewish and I think did at one time live in Florida.

Seventies Soulchild: In addition to that now, the real family genealogist Gwen is asking me to write a short book about the family history.

3rdthawkins: unfortunately for me, some people have passed that had posted messages 10 years before

vkn: hmmmmm

alt: yup, we can't all be at the same place/level of research at the same time.

Seventies Soulchild: Hello Selma

alt: hello Selma

Spivey: Hi Selma!

3rdthawkins: hello Selma

vkn: Selma

Selma: Good Thursday afternoon everyone...

Seventies Soulchild: Well this would be my Washington and Rounds ancestors. Two lines

alt: are they connected lines?

Selma: Congrats on getting the photos seventies

Seventies Soulchild: yes, by marriage. Great grandfather Will Washington married Alice Rounds. . . Tracing Rounds and Washington ancestors thanks Selma

alt: so it would be Will & Alice (Rounds) Washington descendants, right?

Seventies Soulchild: yes that would be me... Also doing their ancestors.

Selma: Seventies the current issue of the Journal of AA History has an article on AFricans in Mexico

Seventies Soulchild: Oh I'll have to go to the page. . .

vkn: That is Alvas topic Selma

Seventies Soulchild: Thanks Selma

Selma: What is Alva's topic

Selma: Oh I didn't know that vkn She might want to take alook at the article too

3rdthawkins: hey Ay

alt: careful with the 'oral history' Seventies Soulchild... Document it as best you can, fiction takes on a life of it's own and is very hard to 'undo'/
