AmosNY: Its a great group.
Daviss: well its always good to join a group that peaks your interest and one you enjoy working with
AmosNY: Indeed it is.
Daviss: and that leads me into the 2nd portion of the workshop I attended today getting the Genealogy groups out of the bunk they are in and trying new things to go along with whats happening genealogy.
jhonora: What a great topic Daviss, we could all use that one for our soc.
Daviss: two many gen groups are failing because they are doing the same ole things they did 20 yrs ago and limit themselves to old ways you know that old adage about 'Thats the way we've always done it" lol
AmosNY: I'm sure that because of Ancestry there are many new ways of doing things that we did not have available before.
Daviss: new idea's attract younger people with all the new skills
jhonora: In my soc., we have about 15 researchers and 180 research cheerleaders
Daviss: yes but Witcher also said that there are thousands and thousand of links and sites that ancestry might not touch.. They kind of pick the low hanging fruit
AmosNY: I'm sure that's probably true.
Daviss: You just gotta know how to dig for them and not wait just for the green leaves to fall something to think about hopefully my group will gain more people, if not we have to work with what we have the ones that stay will have something to contribute so that we willbe able to help each other vkn how many in your group where you live?
