2Re: [Fwd: RE: Boston-area TMG user's meeting]
- Apr 14, 2007Linda,
Thank you for your hard work!
I have also copied the BostonTUG@yahoogroups.com because all mail to it is archived and it can be
found through search of the yahoogroups. (This means you may get this twice.) Let's try to
always include BostonTUG in the future. Those not wishing to join the BostonTUG group
on yahoogroups should let us know so that we can address mail to them separately.
Let's meet for two months, preferably not on the second Saturday of the month.
I am willing to advance the funds for the deposit. We need to advertise as
widely as possible and indicate that we need donations to cover costs.
A beginner's session featuring one of the following might be a good starter:
- Data Entry
- Search for direct ancestors
- Simple report
- Preferences for the program
- Conversion of a data set to TMG.
and answers from the assembled group.
Alternatively, I have the TMG Advanced DVD that we could use for part of the program.
In the future, if John Cardinal could introduce us to Second Site that would be useful.
If these ideas don't meet the needs of the group, I'll try to find some additional ones
from the Arlington RUG.
What do others think/need/hope to get out of the group?

Hi Everyone -
I finally got a response from Marie at NEHGS - and the reason for her delay. I guess I am naive, but I didn't expect to have to 'rent' the facility. But it does make sense. I'm not sure how to co-ordinate this, but everyone should e-mail everyone and share ideas. I think my idea is that we should meet a couple of times to make sure there is interest & people can attend meetings, and then sign up with the society. Everyone's idea should be shared - whatever you're thinking.
PS - Excuse this if I am not doing this correctly - I have never started a group like his (or actually even attended one!)
PPS - There is a 5-page document attached to this which identifies the facilities at the society. If you can't download this, let me know....

I am sorry for the delay in answering you. We were in the process of formulating our policies on the use of our facility. I have attached a copy of our draft policy. But we have considerable leeway to make special offers to non-profit groups such as yours. We can offer you a 50% discount and no minimum charge. I would estimate that you may have initially about a dozen people at any one meeting, so our initial offer will be $42/month. We had discussed having the programs Saturday afternoons, once a month. Please let me know what you think, and if you want to go forward with the meetings. We look forward to helping your organization develop and grow. Marie E.

You seemed to be interested in the idea, and said you would need to check with your management. I wonder if you were able to do that, and what your response would be. We are looking forward to starting this group, and feel the Society would be a perfect meeting place. Of course, if that isn't possible, then we will pursue other avenues. Hoping to hear from you - and thank you for your consideration Linda Reinfeld 3 Whittier St Cambridge, MA 617-864-7450
