Seventies Soulchild: The people over on the Mexico genealogy page were intrigued with my Henyard family. lol

alt: I can imagine... is it an Afro-Mexican page?

Seventies Soulchild: No just Mexican genealogy in general

alt: you and Eva Longeria (sp), huh?

kim: yes it is

Statustray: AYWalton: Yup, I am now back researching again, I took a leave of absence for a little bit, but now I'm back into it.

AYWalton: I know how that is, Statustray.

kim: me too..I'm back!

Statustray: I still have family members who do not want to give me any information, or so it seems, they tell me, "I am going to send it to you" but it's all a mirage... lol...

Seventies Soulchild: oh I can't stand that. lol

Daviss: kim, do you know when Minnie was born

Seventies Soulchild: My aunts are very, very talkative about the family history and very helpful as is my grandfather.

AYWalton: no, an older version. FTM 16 which I have had a while. I hear that the 2012 version is a good one.

Statustray: It is pretty nice, yes.

AYWalton: And laptops are now coming with it pre-loaded.

alt: FTM 16 is the last 'real' FTM genealogy package out there AYWalton ... IMHO

Statustray: oh really? I didn't know that.

Selma: Good morning dru

ProfDru: Howdy Gang

Statustray: Hey there ProfDru.

kim: Hi ProfDru

Seventies Soulchild: I didn't know that either. wow

alt: Hello ProfDru

Seventies Soulchild: I've got to run. I'll see you all tomororw. Have a great afternoon.

AYWalton: Ah.... ProfDru is in da house!!

alt: later's Seventies Soulchild

Statustray: I know they have an app for iPhones, and I sent them a email inquiring about Android, and they told me right now there are no plans to make a app for Android :(

ProfDru: Angela in da house!!!

Daviss: hello ProfDru

AYWalton: how are you this afternoon, ProfDru?

ProfDru: I'm ok; trying to resist taking a nap. lol I just played with the voice recognition software on my computer--where you can speak to the computer and it types what you say.

AYWalton: Statustray what are you working on with your own projects.

ProfDru: Dictated a 1971 letter written to my grandmother by her sister.

alt: WOW ProfDru, we're finally there when computers will do what we say, huh?

AYWalton: sounds like a neat program. did you purchase it or download it recently ProfDru?

ProfDru: This technology has been at least since the late 1990s.

alt: really!!!!!

ProfDru: I used the free one with windows, but I do have one which I purchased some time ago.

Selma: Is it built into everyone's computer?

Statustray: AYWalton: Nothing in particular to be honest. I did recently learn that my great-great-great grandmother had siblings, and tracked one of her brothers from MS to TX.

alt: but not available for everyday 'chumps' like me, huh?

AYWalton: Yes I am aware that the technology exists I used to see ads for it on AOL years ago, but never looked at it.

ProfDru: It should be there, Selma, but if not it can be downloaded.

AYWalton: oh yes, you have to go after those collateral ancestors as well, Statustray.

ProfDru: It is speech recognition software.

Statustray: that's so very true AYWalton.

AYWalton: so there is a free one in every computer ProfDru?

kim: oh yes I've heard of it

ProfDru: yep

Statustray: ProfDru: I used to use this package called Dragon Dictate many years ago and it was so nice and slick. It had 'dictation' mode, and also 'command' mode. Now I have the technology by Dragon Dictate on my android phone too ;-)

Daviss: Kim here is the link to use. click on afrigeneas and in the search line put in Samuels. It will bring up all of them

kim: thanks so much

ProfDru: yes, Dragon is a great software package.

Statustray: it may be called Dragon Naturally Speaking (or something similar) now. It has changed its name a couple of times.

Daviss: what is the title listed on the puter Dru? I cant seem to find it

ProfDru: I'

AYWalton: did someone just leave the room? I heard the chime.

Daviss: looks like kim did the daviss lol

Statustray: Kim left.

ProfDru: I'm using Windows 7 and is it is called Speech Recognition Software. Try looking in Accessories folders.

Daviss: wb kim

ProfDru: Vicky, what operating system are you using?

kim: I clicked on the link and lost the chat

AYWalton:'s not on my computer. I have XP.

ProfDru: Angela, download a free copy of voice recognition software from Internet.

AYWalton: ahhh there are free packages. Interesting.

ProfDru: I have the one that came with my computer, alt.

Daviss: same as you but durn if I see it

AYWalton: Might be a great way to "transribe" many of my text records from the Archives. Like FB records. then it can be saved as a Word file, ProfDru?

ProfDru: Vicky, you can do a search for voice recognition software in Windows 7

kim: glad to know I have it will try it later

Daviss: I cant even find accessories lol

ProfDru: yes, saved as a word file, angela

alt: I just bough a 'netbook bout 2 months ago and it just has the 'Starter" Windows 7.

ProfDru: alt, try using the search feature in Windows 7 to see if you have software
