Seventies: Doing good, and you?

vkn: lol Pull up a chair, prop your feet up and I will tell ya lol lol lol

Seventies: uh oh... lol lol lol

didessa: nothing new I can say. I did not renew Ancestry and now I miss it :( feet up! How ya been?

vkn: Did the ancestry price increase this year?

Seventies: I've been good. Ancestry has gotten totally expensive. Everyone is trying to sell genealogy and other personal information. But its to be expected in the Age of Information.

didessa: I am not sure. I always wait for them to send me a come on back coupon.

vkn: All is going reasonably well. as far as I can tell. Lots of grime and grease under the hood BUT that is to be expected

Seventies: lol didessa, anything new for you in the area of genealgoy? Its been a while since you've been on here.

vkn: How did your event go last week ? Seventies

Seventies: Oh it went great! Lots of students and staff and conference visitors. Marc Morial was the keynote luncheon speaker on Thursday.

vkn: lol I just hit Didessa with that same wet noodle Seventies

Seventies: lol

vkn: Wow sounds great. What is Marc Morial up to these days. Where did the keynote focus ?

didessa: yeah nothing new. looking for a conference close enough and in my budget range to go to that would be of interest to me. Local archives and genealogy group have not done it for me

Seventies: Diversity... but it seems as if black people are mostly left out of the equation.

vkn: Didessa what is your research status these days

Seventies: They are having a Genealogy Conference in NYC on 27 Oct that I plan on attending.

didessa: vkn what do you mean

Seventies: Price is reasonable $15 general admission with free 30 minute lectures all day.

vkn: Well guess I am looking for an update didessa Sounding good re conference in NYC

Seventies: yes, and I get to go shopping.. lol

vkn: More conferences need to be local or close to local

didessa: i just looked it up. it seems nice and price reasonable...i will look into it some more seventies

Seventies: For me that is local. And really they could have a genealogy conference like they do for FGS. they have a Mormon temple/library right at Lincoln Center.

vkn: Didessa I thought you might want to share all of those walls you broke down since being here last lol
