Seventies: hi karoshi8

karoshi8: Hi Seventies! How's it going?

Seventies: Pretty good

karoshi8: Anything new?

Seventies: No not right now karoshi8... just waiting on some docs... DCs specifically.

karoshi8: Oh, did you have to order them?

Seventies: Yes ordered and waiting on a response from the Dept of Archives in MS I called ahead to get some pricing and I'm glad I did. Hopefully it will expedite the process.

karoshi8: Ordering them from vital records gets expensive!

Seventies: Well its $27 for one hour of research, a $3 mail fee and .25 per copy..

karoshi8: Wow.

Seventies: When I first ordered a DC from MS it was $15 and in less than 3 mos the fee went WAAAYYYY up

karoshi8: That's a lot to me! :)

Seventies: karoshi8, me too BUT I tried to cram like 10 records in the order. I want to make them work for that one hour.. hard.. lol

karoshi8: I was trying to get some from Ohio but they are 21.00 plus a 10 dollar processing fee each.

Seventies: For uncertified copies?? wow!

karoshi8: Lol! Well, that's not bad, I thought it was 27 each one I'm starting to burn out a bit. I need to take a step back.

Seventies: Yes I have been stepped back for a while now karoshi8... not that I don't have anything to research, but I work full time and have two teens.. My son plays football and we are in championship season... so lots to do.

karoshi8: That is a lot. How do you mange it all? I work from home and I don't have any kids. I think I'm doing this about 10 hours a day in between work.

Seventies: Well sometimes on sleepless nights I get online and just start going at it. I take away a few moments at work... etc. Getting it in where I can. Good morning, Daviss.
