Hal Jackson: Nothing much. I'm trying to reassemble my family tree on my computer. Not too long ago, my computer crashed.
alt: Hal Jackson, again, where are you located and what areas are you researching?
daviss: Ouch Hal
alt: that's a bummer, Hal
Hal Jackson: I'm located in Southern California. I'm researching JACKSON from Loudoun County, VA and MANNS from Putnam County, Fl
alt: okay, Loudoun Co., VA is very fertile research grounds, lots of good stuff there.
daviss: Oh neither one of my areas Is that Denice's area alt?
alt: yep, sure is daviss
Hal Jackson: Yeah, I know. I've been to the Balch library in Leesburg. In the past, Deniece and I have been in contact.
alt: I was going to mention Balch Library... Denise Oliver-Velez a long time AfriGeneas volunteer did some great work with that Library. okay, so you know her, great!!!!!
Hal Jackson: We know each other through Afrigeneas only.
daviss: Had you backed up the info on your puter Hal
alt: I only know her thru AfriGeneas as well.
Hal Jackson: yes things were backed up. It seems that the hard drive started to mis function and got hot; however, through Best Buy they were able to recover quite a bit of the documents. I'll have to function with an external hard drive.
daviss: Thats good news
Hal Jackson: What are you two working on?
alt: yep, at least all was not lost I'm still plugging away on any connections to my areas and people primarily here in west central Ohio. oh, oh got my son and grandson dropping in for a visit.
