Daviss: Good afternoon alt!

HistoryBuff: Hey Daviss how are you?

Daviss: hello there HistoryBuff,how's it going? I am good

HistoryBuff: It's going. Trying to keep up.

Daviss: I hear ya HistoryBuff..Sometimes that is hard to do but trying is the key lol

HistoryBuff: LOL I always learn a great deal from Bernice's program, but last eve's topic really helped me a great deal with putting together my family reunion genealogy workshop.

Daviss: thats good HistoryBuff..I was in for a while but had to leave

HistoryBuff: Well please be sure to play it back. Dru's interview was excellent.

Daviss: You have a good deal of information though don't you

HistoryBuff: I do and my focus is to get more relatives active in genealogy research including the youth.

Daviss: I was in for about 30 mins or so and enjoyed that portion

HistoryBuff: My objective is make the learning process more interactive.

Daviss: so your relatives are near you?

HistoryBuff: Well the reunion takes place in Matteson, IL a suburb of Chicago.

Daviss: that would really make it worthwhile

HistoryBuff: ...last in week in july. That's the plan.

Daviss: good for you!

HistoryBuff: I think assisting in developing basic research skills would be a wonderful gift for all of the student kinfolks.

Daviss: Will this be your line or your hubbys line that is having the reunion?

HistoryBuff: My line, however, I would love to provide the same thing for my husband's clan.

Daviss: that's nice!

HistoryBuff: That is.

Daviss: Now what about your training for the archives, have you gotten that down?

HistoryBuff: It's always a learning process. I still haven't completed the written training exercise but I'm 80% finished.

Daviss: oh they have a written exercise huh, interesting?

HistoryBuff: I plan on taking 2 laptops, 1 scanner, music, arts/crafts and display materials for side-line consultations. Indeed the written exercises cover military, native american, census, immigration and naturalization topics.

Daviss: with all that wealth of info, I commend you. I am sure the people who come for the tours will be fed good hi there vkn!!

Daviss: I was listening to HistoryBuff's plan to have a mini class on genealogy at her reunion.. That is a great idea

HistoryBuff: As I was telling Daviss, part 2 of my journal involves building confidence in learning the african american civil war history well enough to provide tours. in the museum.

vkn: ahhhhhh very good what is basis for the course

Daviss: You had a couple of display tables also didn't you HB

HistoryBuff: Yes Vkn, I was inspired by Dru last evening. I was already planning the workshop presentation, but the Dru's interview provided some brainstorming for making the workshop interative. Mostly likely one table full.

Daviss: I know she will be thrilled to hear that HistoryBuff

HistoryBuff: The basis is to engage more relatives to begin their individual genealogy research.

vkn: That is super great I know that Dru and Bernice will be pleased to hear

HistoryBuff: Well, I'm truly grateful for the program.

vkn: That is worth a million $$$$$s

Daviss: yep!
