3rdthawkins: what's up alt

alt: hello 3rdthawkins .. not much with me, how bout you?

Selma: Afternoon 3rd and alt

alt: Hello Selma.. how goes it with you today?

3rdthawkins: one of those days alt, everyday is something and everyday throws something at you. But I'm ok. hello Selma

Selma: Alt..I just read your DNA response to Linda...I am impressed with your understanding of the whole subject. Went right over my head.. LOL

alt: hang in there young fella,, it will get better.. I promise thank you Selma...

3rdthawkins: :) thx alt

alt: and BTW Selma, it may be that you are 'easily impressed' LOL

Selma: LOL...actually no I am not

alt: are you FaceBooking it now Selma?

Selma: Actually I suppose to sign in..I think I am dropping out

alt: like the Mafia, once in you can't get out LOL

Selma: Actually you and AY have a way of explaining the technicalities of the DNA process so that it makes sense to the lay person.. Although I do think some folks have unreasonable expectations

alt: I find it (FB) interesting, been able to find photos and make connections to many of the 'younger generations' in my family lines. on DNA yeah, what it can do for you, genealogically, is greatly misunderstood

3rdthawkins: for some reason, I just haven't been able to connect with anyone on facebook, then again, I don't know anyone, especially on my dad's side

alt: and I'm seeing more and more 'older folks' involved with FB.. seems to be a way to communicate with grandkids and even great-grandkids. and some of the 'organizational' pages can be interesting

Selma: I think seniors are becoming great users of FB

alt: yep, our genealogy group AAGGMV just started a Facebook page this last weekend.

Selma: Is that something you initiated

alt: we already have 2 websites, I was against a FB page, but if it will make us a better organization and get folks involved I'll have to 'go with the flow' lol

Selma: I was gonna is that different from your website?

alt: on our member website we can upload more information in the types of files... pdf, wav, word docs, photos, etc. and place the information in categories within website sections the MyfFamily website is more of an 'archival' type of site if you will FB is like 'what's happening now'.

Selma: Ummm

alt: and the website is 'searchable' within each section by category using keywords.

Selma: Seems like just one more thing to keep up with to me.....

alt: example, we have 10 years worth of quarterly newsletters on the MyFamily site, along with meeting minutes, bylaws, etc. hello daviss

daviss: hello, sorry I am late

Selma: Well, well, look whose late...hi daviss LOL

daviss: I was trying to figure out how to post a newspaper article but having trouble

alt: we do 3rdthawkins .. and especially make y'all appreciate 'older' things. is it an article that has a "share' and/or 'print me' thingee daviss?

daviss: I had to put it in Word but cant copy and post from there

alt: hmmmm, print it, then scan it and then upload the image daviss that's one way of doing it

daviss: The scanner is off at daughters house and I can't find the CD to put it online again.

freeaainnc: I've been pulling books for the table this past week and today looking for articles in our journals on the topic and finishing up the sign thanks vicky been using books here during my lunches to update notes for individuals and also added a few

daviss: I wish I were there to see your display

alt: gotcha in my favorites now freeaainnc, gonna keep up with ya too LOL

freeaainnc: I'm thinking about starting to take pictures of them just for my own memory how they were displayed so the next year I'll have the idea to do it again, but with different books lol alt, ok :)

daviss: What tribes are you focusing on free that are specific to NC

alt: greta idea on the photos of previous display free

daviss: yep, sure is alt

freeaainnc: Well, Cherokee of course, but since everyone associates the Cherokee with NC, trying to look for info on lesser known tribes like the Tuscarora, Tutelo, Lumbee, Saponi and Sappony, etc.

alt: it will also 'document' your talents in making up displays... a good feature for future use on your resume

freeaainnc: That's true alt and thanks :)

daviss: I have not heard of the first two but have the Lumbee and Saponi

alt: daviss, you do have Richard Haithcock's books on your self's, right?

freeaainnc: see, that is why I want to work on the lesser known. Lumbee and Saponi are tribes there are still here, but not the others

alt: Oops, the was for freeaainnc

daviss: lol thought so alt

alt: He has several works on the Occanechie, Tutelo, Saponi & Catawba's freeaainnc

freeaainnc: I can only use books that are in the library
