Subject: Genealogy on IRC
If you have not yet taken advantage of using IRC (Internet Relay Chat) to
help with your research, you are missing out on a GREAT resource!
The Genealogy Channels on IRC are the Genealogy Societies of the
CyberWorld. We share resources, do lookups for each other, help each other
with our webpages, recommend helpful websites and have a wonderful time
doing it! Most active time period is from 8 PM to 12 Eastern Time, USA
We designed our website with the NEW IRCer in mind. You will find MUCH to
help you get started! The instructions for Joining IRC have been made even
more simple, if you have tried to join before without success, TRY AGAIN!
The #GenealogyForum webpage has these links to help you.
OUR AGENDA: it is our hope in #GenealogyForum to be a support group to you
in your quest for genealogical answers,to help where we can and refer you
to others if we can't. We believe that in helping others we
ultimately help ourselves too. We are strickly amateurs but very serious
about our genealogy; rowdy, sometimes, in our playtime; hopefully,
companionable in the silences that sometimes occur when everyone
is surfing the web, but always willing to stop the activities in progress
to help if we can. Most of us have a doorbell installed on the channel
door, just give us a few seconds to close what we are doing to respond.
IMPORTANT NEWS FLASH!
