Seventies Soulchild: lol

daviss: brb gotta turn off the ceiling fan.. its cold

alt: looking thru some old photos .. put one up on Facbook of the kids and me taken 47 years ago on Easter Sunday.. What a difference a day & 75 lbs make. LOL lOL

daviss: whew ok back oh I gotta check that out alt you were a handsome cad alt!

alt: thank you ma'am.... he said while blushing LOL

daviss: I love looking at pictures and a nice video you put together SS

Seventies Soulchild: Thank you daviss

daviss: thanks for the sneak peak

Seventies Soulchild: no problem

daviss: When will it roll out

Seventies Soulchild: Not sure, need approval from the family. Trying to professionalize the reunion based on some of the responses from my survey. Going to present my findings and suggestions in the summer.

daviss: How many on the approval board

Seventies Soulchild: Well, its just the family that lives in MS who do the reunion stuff. Numbers change each year. Also working on how to make it more affordable to get to MS or Baton Rouge These are the things they should've been doing to get more people to come. Also looking at hotels in the area.

daviss: and when is the reunion?

Seventies Soulchild: July 2013 Also looked up newspapers to advertise in.

daviss: oh ok

Seventies Soulchild: There is still time.. all the things in the video we do every time we come to MS My cousin Mickey does a mean BBQ

daviss: How many days do you all celebrate

Seventies Soulchild: usually a weekend. Friday night through Sunday afternoon. But since next year the 4th is on a weekend day, people may be able to come early.

daviss: ok we do too after Church

Seventies Soulchild: Also, we have a creek, Second Creek, that runs thorugh the property and my cousin fixed up a 4 wheeler track down by the sandbar.. lots of great outdoor stuff to do there. And there is zero cost to do it.

daviss: sounds good

Seventies Soulchild: Having reunions there keeps the costs very low. I also looked at newspapers who may be willing to run articles on the reunion... I chose the Chicago Defender, The Bluff City Post and the Natchez Democrat

daviss: are those the places with the most of your Washington Rounds

Seventies Soulchild: Yes. And Rounds mostly Rounds.

alt: will the articles run before the reunion, after the reunion, or both?

Seventies Soulchild: I would like both times, alt. But again these are only my ideas. Hoping that the family will say ok. We have a whole lot of relatives out there, mainly on the Rounds side... its time we get together.

alt: I ask because when we had our 90th Adams reunion the newpspaer would only report in the newspaper AFTER the event took place... otherise it was just a notice of the event or doing a paid advertisement.

daviss: what program is easier to use Family Tree or Roots Magic (on phone)

Seventies Soulchild: Roots magic lol

alt: RM for me .. or an earlier version of FTM like their V16.

daviss: thx

alt: oh, Oops you said Family Tree.. never used it before.

daviss: I thought you had used it alt is FTM the same thing

alt: FTM, but not just 'Family Tree"

daviss: oh ok

alt: dunno, but I think they are different programs daviss

daviss: ok I just told them Roots Magic lol

alt: wonder wher the folks are today... out getting an early start on the weekend?

Seventies Soulchild: Its chilly out here alt.
