    1. [CLAIRDAY] List Admin note - List Changes
    2. Juli Morgan
    3. Hi Clairday researchers! Just a note to let you know our CLAIRDAY mailing list has changed over to Rootsweb's new Mailman mailing system. You should have received an e-mail about the new system a week or so ago. The change should help the lists run smoothly and cut down on the number of spam messages that try to access the lists. The old system never let the spam through to the list, but we List Administrators would get quite a bit of it as spammers tried to mess up your genealogical research! There are a couple of changes that will affect you: The first is for those who receive both individual e-mails and digest mail. You can no longer receive both mailings to the same e-mail address. It was an unavoidable part of the change-over, and it affects me, too. So if you were receiving both mailings, you'll have to resubscribe to the Digest with another e-mail address if you wish to keep receiving it. The second is that we will not be receiving messages from the CLAIRDAY message board at Rootsweb for a time. The staff is working to correct this problem, but until it is running again, you might wish to check the CLAIRDAY message board at http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=board&r=rw&p=surnames.clairday. If you a registered user, you might consider adding the message board to "My Notifications." This will let you know when a message has been posted and you can choose to read it or not. The message boards are also getting ready for a major update to make them easier to navigate and use. If you should experience any problems with the CLAIRDAY mailing list in the near future, please let me know at CLAIRDAY-admin@rootsweb.com and I'll pass it along to the proper staff members. We don't anticipate any problems, but we ARE dealing with computers! <G> Happy Hunting! Juli Risener Morgan CLAIRDAY Mailing List Administrator CLAIRDAY-admin@rootsweb.com

    1. From List Administrator
    2. Juli Morgan
    3. Hello all, Thought you all should be aware of the following: The following is from the Rootsweb HelpDesk at <http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/>: ************************************** 2006-05-02 Fake mail addressed from RootsWeb Abuse Department: It has come to our attention that RootsWeb is suffering from a low-life attempt to infect its users by sending them to an infected website. Basically, if you see mail that is reputedly being stated as being from the RootsWeb Abuse Department and telling you to confirm your email by clicking a link, then just delete it. Please DO NOT click the link. Thanks. ************************************** The following information is also given on the same web page: ************************************** Infected E-mails and Spam: Many worms, trojans, or viruses forge (copy) the "From" e-mail address, making them appear to come from someone you know (such as RootsWeb.com). Or, they may have a file name that would make it look like a legitimate e-mail address. Spam, or an infected e-mail might indicate a message came from RootsWeb.com, or from a mailing list at RootsWeb.com, when it didn't. An infected computer is sending these forged messages to you privately. RootsWeb.com cannot prevent these forgeries, nor the bounces for failed deliveries. To learn more, and for links to online sites that can verify your computer is clean of these viruses, click here (<http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/virus.html>). ************************************** Pretty much any email that instructs you to click a link to go to a website to confirm ANYTHING, whether it be your email address, User Name/ID, Password, etc., should be ignored. Such tactics are called "Phishing", i.e., someone is "fishing" for your personal information. DON'T DO IT!!!!! No legitimate website will ever send you an email asking you to click a link and then enter personal information. Regards, Mailing List Administrator

    1. Special "Katrina" msg board - from List Admin
    2. Juli Morgan
    3. Hello List Members: Rootsweb has set up a special "Katrina" message board at http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=board&r=rw&p=hurricanekatrina2005&m=1. This message board has been created to enable you to post inquiries about your loved ones, friends, neighbors, and "genie friends" who may have been in harm's way. Hopefully, when they are able to get online, they will post there to let us know they are OK and to share their stories of survival. Queries and news about archives, libraries, repositories, cemeteries, and other items of genealogical interest are also appropriate for this board. Offers to help the victims of the hurricane should be directed the appropriate agencies, such as the Red Cross, Salvation Army, religious groups, etc. instead of the message board. Feel free to visit anytime. Juli Morgan Message Board Admin

    1. From List Admin - Gatewayed messages
    2. Juli Morgan
    3. Hi all, The CLAIRDAY mailing list is "gatewayed" to the CLAIRDAY message boards at Ancestry/Rootsweb. This means that when a message is posted to the message board, we get a copy of it at our mailing list. The gateway is a great tool as many genealogy newbies aren't familiar with or are leery of a mailing list. By using the gateway feature, their queries and info reach a larger number of people they might otherwise have missed. However, the gateway only works one way. We can see the message board posts, but they cannot read the mailing list posts (unless they search the archives.) To make sure a reply gets to the person who first queried, Rootsweb gives these directions: "The correct method of replying to a gatewayed message is to click on the link included in the body of the message. This takes you directly to the post in its original location on the board. There you can click on "Post Reply" and type in your response. That way the board poster will be notified of the response and will be able to view it on the board. Additionally, the list subscriber's reply will be gatewayed back to the mailing list so a separate response need not be posted there. Of course, there may be some instances when it is not convenient or possible for mailing list users to post their responses on the message boards as described above. For example, if you have an e-mail only service and/or limited access to the Internet, and as a result read and compose e-mail for mailing lists while offline then clicking on the URL link in the message is inconvenient or impossible. To reply to gatewayed message under such circumstances, remember to include a private response to the poster when you reply to the list. To accomplish this, make sure that the posters' e-mail address, which is included in the gatewayed list post, appears in the "Send To" box of your e-mail message." (Previously published in RootsWeb Review: 10 August 2005, Vol. 8, No. 32.) If you DO decide to post to the list only and contact the message board poster privately, this would be a good time to urge them to join our mailing list. After all, we get the best of both worlds - message board posts and mailing list e-mails! Happy Hunting!! Juli Risener Morgan CLAIRDAY Mailing List Administrator CLAIRDAY-admin@rootsweb.com

    1. Re: [CLAIRDAY] CLARDY DNA Project
    2. One thing that has always fascinated me is that almost always the oldest child resembles the father, the 2nd child the mother. Sure, there are exceptions but when you look at lots of peoples' families the standard holds true most all of the time. Changes in paternity, stillbirths, miscarriages can have an effect, of course.

What I was asking was how is the research proceeding for testing x chromosomes? I am well aware that for quite awhile there has been the Y testing ability and how it is done. But, the X research was my question. Sorry, I don't know the answer- it appears to me from reading the website that the only testing is through strictly male or female lines- in other words, your mother's mother's mother etc or your father's father's father if you're male and only your mother's mother's mother if you're female. I just tossed out the idea to see who might be interested in submitting DNA to a study, simply because my research has stalled, not because I'm a geneticist :) To test Drury Clarida's lines, you'd have to locate a direct male heir, a man carrying the Clarida name, that can be documented back to one of Drury's many sons. The oldest member of the generation is preferable (Drury might have great-grandsons of my Dad's age still around, since he had children until late in life). Joanne Drury D. Clardy b: 6 Mar 1794 married Mary S. Jones in Halifax Co Va on 30 Dec 1818. Surety to the marriage bond was Nathan Jones. Drury moved to Smith Co TN in time to appear on the 1820 Census, where he appeared in 1830 and 1850. In 1840, Drury does not appear in the census, but during that time, Drury bought land in Smith Co TN, so we know he was around that area. He left Smith Co TN and moved to Williamson Co IL in 1857. He died in Williamson Co IL 8 Jan 1864. His name changes over time from Clardy to Claraday to Clarida. His tombstone reads Drury D. Clarday. He had the following children: James b. 1821 Thomas H. b.1826 John W. b. 1827 Archibald b. 1831 Mary b. 1834 Elijah b. 1838 William b. 1840 Ezekial b. 1842

    2. Apparently this company does do the blood x testing as far as I can tell from their site. But, if I understand correctly there cannot be any crossover of sexes--which makes it very limiting, in other words, 5 generations of only females, for example.

Deborah _Click here: Family Tree DNA - we do genetic tests for your genealogy questions!_ (http://www.ftdna.com/faq.html#q1.2) Hi Deborah, I'm going to submit my Dad's DNA (mouthswab, not intrusive at all) to Family Tree DNA _http://www.familytreedna.com_ (http://www.familytreedna.com/) and just start there. The person submitted needs to be male and with the surname being researched (in other words a direct descendant) You and I would not be eligible, but since my Dad and brother are Clarida/Clardy's, and I know their genealogy back to William T Clarida born 1802, I'd like for my Dad to be tested. As other Clardy's submit their DNA, the company analyzes it and will let you how they compare. They also keep a DNA sample for 25 years, so as others finally submit their DNA, it all adds to the database. Plus, my 82 year old Dad won't be around forever, and he is the oldest living male of his generation, only 3 generations removed from William T. Clarida, born 14 April 1802, because he is from lines that were born later in their parents lives (Wm b. 1802, Thomas b. 1842, Milo b. 1882, Orville (my dad) b. 1923- I was born in 1955) It's not cheap, but I think the potential for accurate research is incredible. At $159 & $219 depending on the test, I'll probably get my brother and sister to pitch in, since they're interested in what I've found about our Clarida's, and I've still got a son in college. Look at the website and let me know what you think. I'll probably post results as I get them to the Clardy list and Genforum. On another note- how is your research on Drury Clardy/CLARIDA coming along? Joanne
