vkn: Yes it is an unduplicated count alt for the year
alt: so we could be getting as many 'hits' from previous users, just not as many first timers?
Selma: So vkn..that is at least 1 view by persons or person
vkn: Correct alt
Seventies Soulchild: Hey y'all
alt: so those are the one's we hope to 'capture' the new viewer/genealogist?
vkn: Correct Selma
daviss: Hello there HistoryBuff and Seventies
HistoryBuff: Hey All
Selma: Could the uptick be because of WDYTYA and those shows

Selma: and the down tick because folks realize it takes more than 15 minutes to get back to the mother land
Seventies Soulchild: hello alt, daviss, HistoryBuff, Selma and vkn So I found Vance Marchbanks Jr. and Vance Marchbanks Sr.
HistoryBuff: Hey Seventies
vkn: Well only Daviss will remember this but in those high first time users was when we were being spammed to the max
daviss: so you dud huh!
