Host is ET [Thu May 30 09:36:24 PDT 2002] Displaced Creole: ALLAU, AYEAUX, BELL, DUPART, FRANK, LAROCHE, MELLION/MELIAN, RENE, ROMAN, TROPEZ [Pete] That's with the package I have. [Displaced Creole] How ya'll doin today? [Pete] Basic costs @ $39.00@month. Host ET] I'm well, DC....how about yourself? Any new finds or anything, DC? [Pete] [where she go?] Host ET] I think she may be at work. [Displaced Creole] yup, working through chat again I got a new keyboard so I have spaces between words Host ET] Well, we're glad you stopped by. Displaced Creole] I'm trying to find the connection between my MELLION's and the MELLION's that came over from the Canary Islands Host ET] Ha! I remember you mentioning that before DC. [Displaced Creole] I'v eidentified some films through the LDS Chrush that I need toorder there is only one generation I'm missing so it might be easy might being the operative word of course Host ET] Is that surname French? [Displaced Creole] Spanish I believe Host ET] I see. Did they live on the islands or were they the enslaved Africans? [Displaced Creole] they were members of the militia t hat were paid to colonize Louisiana They were chosen because they had wives and families so they could populate the area late 1700's Host ET] Wow....I'm not sure my history is helping me now. I know both the French and Spanish had their 'day' in the LA territory...but I'm lost with time-frames and the like. [Displaced Creole] I've had to do special research to understand things like that who was in power when, what were the laws of the times, stuff like that Host ET] So, the MELLION's that came from the islands were enslaved Africans, and the MELLION's in LA were Euro settlers? [Pete] DC there i a webpage that lays out the time line. Have you seen that? [Displaced Creole] The MELLION's that I know of were Canary Islanders paid to colonze and populate Louisiana I have not found any enslaved yet Host ET] I see. The islands were a 'holding area' for the Africans that the Euro's were to sell into slavery? ](similar to Goree) [Pete] ] DC there is a webpage that lays out the time line. Have you seen that? [Displaced Creole] yup thanks Pete I don't know about that ET Host ET] Just guessing here.....but I'd imagine that the Canary's were a holding area because of their location in the southern hemisphere.... Euro's were just learning to navigate below Europe (on the hi sea's) around the time of the peculiar institution.(I think). [Displaced Creole] Through the timeline, i also learned that many Chinese came into Louisiana through Cuba and those islands Host ET] (Even though the Canary's are above the equator, I inadvertantly wrote southern hemisphere) [Displaced Creole] sounds feesible Host ET] So, STG, what's the scoop on the cemeteries? :=) [Pete] :-X =mouth zipped shut! Host ET] Gee.....THANKS. Pete!! But, DC, considering the proximity of Spain to the islands, and the fact that the Morrocans ruled the Spanish for about 800 years, they may have known how to get to the islands....even though the rest of Europe may not have known. Just my guess.] How about Moroccans?! [Displaced Creole] it's all new to me I had no idea to look at the Canary Islands I have so much new research to do [Pete] DC you are part of the LA-AfriGeneas group, aren't you? Host ET] Well then, don't believe what I'm saying, DC...I'm trying to pull all of this together from vague memories. :=( [Displaced Creole] LOLYes I do belong to LA Afrigeneas [Pete] Okay. We'll get started on the webpage soon,then. [Displaced Creole] OK Host ET] STG must be hard(ly) at work! :=) [Pete] E.T. you gon' git it!!!! LMBO!!! Host ET] I'll try to do better (head down in shame). [Pete] it's TOO late!!! HEHEHHEHEHEHEHEHE Host ET] It's never too late to do the right thing. (sometimes) :=) [Pete] We'll see, now, won't we! Host ET] I'm going to have to read-up on the Canary Islands. DC's got me curious, now. [Pete] E.T. did you mean the MOORs when yousaid Morroccans? My timeline is messed up from then,too! Host ET] Pete, "Moor" became a European descriptor of all Africans. But the term Moor comes from Moroccan. [Pete] I know. MOOR,hoewver was before the Arab invasion wasn't it? Host ET] African enslavement by Europeans was deemed necessary after the Councils at Niece (France) outlawed enslavement of any Christian (read-European). [Pete] I'm speaking of pre-Nice. [Displaced Creole] thanks for all this info...I knew I had to come here for something! LOL Host ET] The Moors (Moroccans) ruled Spain starting in the early part of the first millenium (around 1100 ad). (Sorry I spelled Nice incorrectly) ]I'm looking at my book....the first council of Nice was in 325 ad. [Pete] I need to go back and re-read all that, anyway! I haven't studied all that since '93 Host ET] Me too. There's so much to remember and 'put together'....but some knowledge of these events is essential (IMO). [Pete] Imma reserch a timeline for that perios. If i find it would you want me to fwd that to you, also? Host ET] It helps to explain how all of these world events came into play to affect everything else. [VKN] Greetings to all Host ET] That would really be nice Pete. I'm going to review that myself, though, too. [Pete] Oh, okay! Host ET] LA was 'occupied' by so many different Europeans...that's why it's the 'melting pot' that it is today. [Pete] but, E.T. it's the one state which has held staunchly to its heritage. Host ET] Meaning? [Pete] It's all that it ever has been, even today! [VKN] ( I do respectfully request that someone please send the log of this session today and tomorrow) [Pete] Not just the sum but all of it. Host ET] Okay, VKN. [VKN] Thanx [VKN] Adios and best wishes to each of you! [Pete] ~~ Host ET] Well, Pete, the "actual" history of this land and this hemisphere is mired in innuendo and fantasy....there's so many untruths to be reconciled. [Pete] oh, yes! Of course. I was only speaking, reflecting selfishly, of LA at that moment. Host ET] Some of my folks were from FL. When I started learning a little more about that part of the south, I was "floored". [Pete] back. What happened to STG? Host ET] She's at work, remember?! [Pete] okay Host ET] Anyway, DC, I'm nominating YOU to be our Spanish researcher!? :=) [Pete] [unh hunh] [STG] right here Host ET] I guess they're both busy. Pete, I'm outta here. Gotta get ready for this heat-wave coming through here today. Take care, y'all!! [STG] bye E.T. [Pete] Me 2 [STG] bye Pete [STG] poof
