Chatters: alt, daviss, Khathu, Seventies Soulchild, vkn

daviss: heyyy alt!

alt: hello daviss

daviss: quick question what is web 2.0 in simple terms

alt: how you today? better I hope

daviss: doing ok

alt: I have no idea on web 2.0

daviss: ok thanks I looked it up on google but this brain did not decipher in simple terms lol

alt: I was doing a google

daviss: how are you doing alt/

alt: hanging in there, just hanging in there

daviss: I guess that is good enough for now huh

alt: bout all you can do daviss, gotta tkae the good with the bad and try maintain our sanity LOL

daviss: I guess I wonder if your Genealogy Angel from LA belongs to a Gen Society When I saw where she was from it made me wonder

alt: dunno, she mentioned all of the genealogy user services she subscribes to.. so I would think so.

daviss: she lives so close to Harrison County

alt: I responded back thanking her.. asked if I could mention her 'act of kindness' and haven't heard from her since then.

daviss: ahhh

alt: no response to my request of mentioning her

daviss: both Khathu and I subscribe to the Ark-La-Tex Genenealogical Society which is based in Shreveport

alt: and not by name, or even location, just the fact of her 'kindness' I see I wonder why folks are so quick to leave the Chat room... are we/I being to 'abrasive' or sumpin?

daviss: why do you say that alt?

alt: dunno, jus have a feeling.. I say something or post a Link and 'zip' folks start leaving.

daviss: I think we have regulars that come to chat no matter what

alt: they'll take the 'abuse", huh? LOL

daviss: lol The majority of regs, don't work so we can sort of hang

alt: I guess so.. wonder why folks are late today?

daviss: the other regs have lunch breaks so that takes care of the rest of us

alt: maybe we're just in a 'down' cycle tis week?

daviss: take me for instance. I have problems with my car. Since it is only 9:17 here now, the only time I can do anything is around this time

Khathu: hello alt and daviss

daviss: hello khathu

alt: hello Khathu

daviss: time change makes a difference sometimes but then we have always had lulls in chat Bobby Bland said it best when he said Soon As The Weather Breaks lol

alt: brb gota help anita with the groceries

daviss: The start of Oct the weather is nice sooooo folks may be taking a walk khathu whats up with you? Have you heard back from the folks regarding your status in the Society from the email you sent off?

Khathu: i haven't heard anything yet. i am currently working on the family reunion presentation

daviss: When is your reunion and where will it be held?

alt: no news from SRT yet, huh Khathu?

daviss: They sure had time to answer

Khathu: the reunion is being held in vallejo, ca from oct 22-24, 2010 the documentation is there all they have to do is review it

alt: ah so.. Valley Joe, huh? got some kinfolsk that live in the inner Bay area.

daviss: great khathu can you post on the calendar with a few highlights

Khathu: what calendar?

daviss: am I the only one who cruises the board lol lol

alt: naw daviss, I check them all, LOL

daviss: lol lol lol

alt: been following Khathu's advice and others on the Slave Forum.

daviss: yes me too alt

alt: one lady wonders why eeverything is 'so difficult' .. it's ALL on the 'Net. LOL and Ancestry can now tell you who you are related to. Amazing!!!!!

Khathu: okay...i don't really follow the reunion board too much

daviss: Thats only if you have a tree isn't it alt

Khathu: i had to response to her post

daviss: khathu the calendar is for Reunion and Events

Khathu: there are several families for the Haynes and each one has incorrect information that why you have to verify everything for yourself

daviss: The Reunion Forum is dfifferent

Khathu: okay

alt: this is a Haynes Reunion... the descendant of a particular Haynes or the families of one Haynes ancestor?

daviss: so if you ever have an event you want to announce that is what the calender is for

Khathu: It is the descendants of Isaac Haynes (1828-1893) Abner Haynes and Sylvester Stewart (Sly Stone) are his great grandsons and I am his great great great grandson

alt: okay Khathu, you saw my PP on the Adams Family.. it is hard to key on the 'main' ancestor, everyon wants to key in on their particular branch.

Khathu: I am focusing on the key ancestor

daviss: khathu I had a cousin by the name of JP Taylor who used to be Sly's Body guard back in the day

alt: exactly.. you have to do it that way, or the individual family branches ge in the way of what/who the celebration of a Reunion is all about.

Khathu: 3 degrees of separation daviss

alt: get the facts striaght on Isaac Haynes and then you can go from there.

Khathu: i agree alt

daviss: Do you ever have reunions on the wife's side

Khathu: It is best to focus on either the matriarch or patriarch

alt: we/I have had big battles on the origins of Lewis & Susan Adams... how they became free, who they might have been realted to, etc.

daviss: What was Susan's maiden name alt

alt: Native ancestry, related to Pres. Adams.. all of that kind of baloney.

daviss: lol

alt: Her father is really unknown daviss, her mother was named Rachel who married a Reno.

daviss: I see, so that is where the Reno came from

Khathu: there is this big debate regarding how my ancestor acquired $300.00 by 1870

alt: Rachel's mother was a slave named Candis, owned by the LaForce Family of VA/KY that was captured in the Shawnee/British raid of Martin's Station, KY in June 0f 1780

Khathu: people are going around saying the slave owner gave it to him

alt: I

Khathu: he stole it, etc....all kind of foolishness

alt: they can come up with some good ones Khathu

Khathu: without any proof to back up any of the assertion

daviss: did he buy land with the 300 dollars khathu

alt: my Lewis Adams, some family states was a son of Samuel Adams and his slave.... never mind that this Samual Adams was in Masschuetts and Lewis was born in KY LOL

Khathu: mostly likely the $300.00 included personal property i.e. furniture, livestock, farming equipment, as well as cash he eventually purchased 369 acres of land of W. T. Woods

daviss: the reason why I asked is mabe a land purchase can identify installments to equal that as in the case of my Joseph Taylor

Khathu: in 1871

daviss: also saw that with my Dickerson/Dixon grand

vkn: howdy all

alt: hello vkn

daviss: hello vkn

Khathu: hello vkn

vkn: yall be a small crowd lol

alt: is next weekend the AAHGS Conference? perhaps folks are getting ready for it.

daviss: a couple of our regs went to the conference vkn

vkn: no it is now alt

alt: oh, that's this weekend?

daviss: prolly Sel, Angela and Ingrid already there

vkn: AYW, Selma and Ingrid be there

alt: No wonder.. Selma, AYWalton are there ..doing their thing LOL

Khathu: i will be attending tomorrow manning the afrigeneas booth with AYWalton and Ingrid

alt: and Ingrid wonderful Khathu

daviss: Good for you khathu

vkn: Great Khathu Joseph Evanco says he will help at table also

alt: is that right, wonderful!!!!! to me Joseph, up close, personal and in living color LOL they get to meet

vkn: Did yall see the obit asking that in lieu of flowers "contribute to whomever runs against Obams in 2012"?

Khathu: wow...very interesting

daviss: saw that vkn

vkn: Blew me away

alt: yes vkn... shows how 'sick' some folks really are.

daviss: did you see my response on Talking lol

vkn: Yes I did daviss

daviss: did you slap my hand

alt: y'all got my email on 'what folks really want Obama to say' ?

vkn: I shook your hand lol

daviss: lol lol oh yes alt! that was funny but true

vkn: alt that is the funniest thing yet all true alt take em to da screets

alt: right on vkn...

daviss: I sure hope these people get out and vote next month

alt: Khathu, did I send it to you?

Khathu: i don't think so

vkn: In Atlanta fokes be having "Yes We Can" parties

alt: We have early voting here in Ohio daviss, we're gonna vote next Tuesday

daviss: awesome vkn!

vkn: indeed The logs are going up daily

daviss: I think it started yesterday here alt. I hear that a multitude of new hispanic voters signed up

alt: Khathu, a cartoon.. Obama speaking and pointing the a crowd saying "Sit Yo' A** down!!!, I'm trying to fix this sh**!!!

vkn: Hope yall answer any unanswered question

Khathu: lol

vkn: It is a wonderful cartoon in spite of the language

daviss: :? :o

alt: sometimes vkn, it has to be said "like it is"

vkn: true dat alt I thought the obit was hard core hatred

alt: I want to say something similar to some of the posters on AfriGeneas.. sit yo' behind down, get a book and do some reading on how to do this 'stuff" LOL

daviss: of course vkn, and carried on by his heirs

Khathu: ditto alt

vkn: lol I be agreeing bout posters but guess we all started at that point

Khathu: we live in a microwave society and everyone wants instant gratification add to that the extremely high and unrealistic expectation for the Obama Administration

vkn: I recall not knowing soundex from index

Khathu: with the slogan of change and hope

alt: a starting point is one thing vkn, but starting in a complete blank ain't cool at all.. I think most of us did some basic research on the How-to's before we even ventured out into the public arena.

daviss: the separation will take place between the serious and those who want something quick I was a complete blank alt no reading no nada but I eventually learned

Khathu: i don't have a problem with someone being a novice my issue is when someone is trying to explain something to them they want to argue with you

vkn: I will never forget the librarian saying to me "you poor thing" when first I went to search

daviss: I never argued but I did get pi**ssed at you alt lol

vkn: lol and at me too daviss

daviss: lol I know why now why I kept coming back for more lol

vkn: I recall trying to convince you that Mariah was found lol

daviss: hehehehe

vkn: It is called genealogy readiness khathu It just cant happen until it happens

Khathu: i guess i am a nerd because i read several books before i started

vkn: and some people learn by arguing

daviss: but most people don't. They hear oral stories and go from there

vkn: and it is hard to unlearn "my granma done tol me"

daviss: like a cousin who stated the ancestors came from NC to Tx in a canoe

vkn: lol lol lol

daviss: and the relatives believed it

Khathu: that must've been one of heck of a canoe ride

daviss: when I asked him why /how he knew that he said it sounded good

Khathu: over land and water

vkn: bumpity bump

daviss: but that story went to other branches so I threw out all his research and started on my own

Khathu: Hello Seventies

daviss: hello seventies

Seventies Soulchild: Hello daviss, Khathu, vkn, alt ok what are you all talking about?

vkn: I recall the story in my family that grandpa had walked from NC to Alabama. Come to find out he was traveling with a group of 'coalers' who were mining from NC to AL along the river banks so indeed they did walk

Seventies Soulchild: That's an interesting story. vkn

Khathu: sometimes oral history can be correct

vkn: indeed but takes research to document

Khathu: i was told that a relative was sold to family in clay county, indiana

daviss: true but this cousin bumed me out with this canoe business

vkn: and khathu as you advised the poster it took researching with the white family to do so

Khathu: which was incorrect however the relative did migrate there after slavery

Seventies Soulchild: lol daviss....

vkn: so daviss you tossed his paddle overboard lol

Seventies Soulchild: lol

daviss: and also the headdress some of the folks were wearing lol lol

vkn: lol

Seventies Soulchild: lol

vkn: dey be heap big injun lol

Seventies Soulchild: I should go back and review my interview with my granddad from summer 2009 And I should go to see the undertaker.... muhahaha... :}

daviss: interviews are good! I wish I had done so

Seventies Soulchild: we were all kind of just talking in my aunts kitchen and I turned on the recorder. very impromtu. I do remember a few details from his sister, my aunt Nig who said that her grandmother worked on the levys. . .

vkn: aunt nig ???

alt: catching up to tthe discussion.. hello Seventies Soulchild

Khathu: have a great day everyone

daviss: its a nickname

vkn: oooook

daviss: lots of aunt nigs around especially in Texas there are also a few males I used to think that it had to do with skin color but don't think so now

vkn: yall be good lunch is waiting

daviss: byeee

Seventies Soulchild: oh my.. vkn left? yes that's my aunt Margaret's nickname.. don't know why

daviss: I have had that discussion with several folks who have an "nig" in their line

alt: guess half of the chat room is at the AAHGS conf.

Seventies Soulchild: Are y'all going to leave me too?:(

daviss: My grandmother Essie has that nick name

alt: really daviss & Seventies Soulchild,, I've never heard tha tas a nickname for an aunt or uncle

Seventies Soulchild: I thought it was a variation of Meg

daviss: guess so alt Felicia one of the Tx posters has an Uncle Nig

Seventies Soulchild: That's what they call her, Nig... It reminds me of the book "Our Nig"

daviss: I forgot his real name but thats what they called him

Seventies Soulchild: Now I know what it is short for... I don't care for it too much.

alt: that's not a dervivation of what I think it is, right?

daviss: no alt

Seventies Soulchild: Yessir In the title of the book it is.

daviss: At first I thought so because of the color of my grands skin but not so

alt: I mean the nickname Seventies Soulchild

daviss: I have seen all shades

Seventies Soulchild: I'm not sure. I thought it was a corruption of Meg, short for Margaret in my case other than that, I didn't ask. How are you both doing today?

alt: okay & you

daviss: what is your aunts skin tone seventies

Seventies Soulchild: wonderful. Looking forward to the 3 day weekend with my boys.

alt: speaking for myself LOL

Seventies Soulchild: about my color

daviss: Felecia's unkle is sort of nut brown uncle

Seventies Soulchild: hmmm.

daviss: my grand is very light

Seventies Soulchild: your mother's mother?

daviss: yep

Seventies Soulchild: Your mother was pretty fair herself.

daviss: so I threw the derviation thing out the window

Seventies Soulchild: ah okay Other than that, I'm considering ordering that CW pension file on James Galimore. It wasn't approved, but I am hoping to get some good info.

daviss: since then I have learned of so many folks with that as a nickname

Seventies Soulchild: Crossing my fingers.......

alt: the application will have a bunch of information, often times more than an approved pension file Seventies Soulchild

Seventies Soulchild: I hope so. I really would like to get some information on the Galmore/Galimore family. Only one in Adams Co, MS but several in Panola Co. MS

alt: from what you have at this point... do you know why the pension was disapproved? orjust that it was disapproved

Seventies Soulchild: No not yet. Just have the application number on the card, but not certificate number

alt: okay, I see

Seventies Soulchild: I think that it has something to do with the et al. Perhaps there was no direct descendant

alt: one of those premature questions that we are wont to ask LOL

Seventies Soulchild: well that would be in the file, right? The investigators report.

alt: the reason for the disapproval, yes , it should be there

Seventies Soulchild: I just know very little about the family. That's my reasoning for ordering the application.

alt: how expensive are they now.. used to be a basic 75.00 and then upward depending on how many pages had to be copied

Seventies Soulchild: as far as I know still 75, for the first 100 pages.

alt: okay thanks

Seventies Soulchild: Mississippi State archives jumped from $15 per research hour to $27 per research hour within this year! I nearly pee'd myself! that's almost double! This recession is hitting the states hard apparently.

alt: a couple of years ago , you could get a 'genealogy only' copy of a BC or DC here in Ohio for .75 cents.. now they only give out certified copies and they are 25.00 upwards dependingon what the additional county fees may be.

Seventies Soulchild: wow! alt this change was in the span of March to September

alt: that's why those DC prior to 1853 on familysearch are such a bargin I hear ya Seventies Soulchild & feel your pain LOL

Seventies Soulchild: I mean, I may have to do some serious running around next summer. I'm using my aunt's mailing address in MS to get the information.

alt: hopefully you can get away with using a digital camera

Seventies Soulchild: I plan to head back to Wilkinson County & Adams courthouse

alt: I wish you the best Seventies Soulchild

daviss: me too

alt: gotta run y'all Laters

Seventies Soulchild: Thanks... hopefully things will pan out for me in the next couple of months.

daviss: later
