didessa: good morning vkn...just stopping to say hello!
vkn: Good Suday Morning Didessa missing you for a spell or two. Hope all is well with you
didessa: I will try to make chats this week maybe I can catch up! lol
vkn: lol well the logs are available generally though they do need some catching up What is new in your world genealogically and otherwise
Seventies: hello didessa and vkn
vkn: Good Morning Seventies and how you be?
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
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
didessa: vkn i am pretty much a browser at this point. i glance at blogs and things but nothing too serious. i have not been doing to much tree activity lately hahahahaha vkn! you mean the new ones I found!
Seventies: brb gotta fuss at my son . . .
vkn: lol that is too funny, didessa Oops seventies and WB

vkn: and are you in Florida Didessa? I am in Atlanta
Seventies: vkn, spoken like a grandmother! lol
vkn: lol lol lol
Seventies: Speaking of a lull in genealogy, last week when I had a spare second.. lol I went through my old family reunion booklets.. dug up some additional nuggets.
vkn: Now did I understand that the price of Ancestry is increasing? Wonderful what review of data can reveal
didessa: I am in philly
