      Date: Thu, 6 Jul 2000 18:15:05 -0500

      I'm sending you the instructions for chat and forum and the full schedule:
      Here you go!

      To chat:
      1.  Go to http://huntsville.about.com/mpchat.htm
      2.  Click onto "log onto chat"
      3.  Enter a nickname (do NOT put a password)
      4.  Scroll down to "ok, connect!"--click it.
      5.  Wait for screen to clear and you're in the chat room.

      Top Hints to Successful Chatting:
      1.  Mark your calendar and day-timers with the time of the chats you don't
      want to miss. PRINT OUT Schedule and keep near computer.
      2.  Bookmark the URL of the chats: http://huntsville.about.com/mpchat.htm
      3.  Once you're in the chat, to get rid of ads:  click the "float" button in
      the upper right hand side.  Then enlarge that window for full view.
      4.  To enlarge your font size, type:      *chat fontsize 16
      5.  Come on time--early even for the bigger chats.  Stay for the whole
      chat so you don't miss YOUR cousins.
      6.  Come prepared:  bring your genealogy files/printouts of tree/resource
      7.  Come not only to find your cousins, but  to help others!
      8.  If you get "bumped off" during chat--try to log back on.  You may have
      to enter a different nickname.  Please be patience, we're using computers!
      9. Greet people when you enter the room; say "good-bye" when
      you have to leave.  Allow time for people to respond BEFORE you go--they may
      have a special message or info for you.
      10.  If you have webtv, you will not be able to log onto the chat.  I would
      suggest that you try to go to a friend's, neighbor's, or the library and use
      the computer there to log on......or if possible, used computers are cheap
      now!  Webtv users CAN post in the forum:
      11.  If you come to the chat room and it's empty, you can read email and
      STILL not miss people.  Turn the SOUND on so that a "beep" sounds when
      someone else comes into the room.  The commands for sounds are:
      ......   *beep enter on........AND:  ......   *beep leave on
      You will hear a bubble sound when someone comes in (delayed just a few
      minutes) and a horn when someone leaves.
      12.  To post your messages:  enter text in the white space at the bottom of
      the screen where it says, "TYPE HERE".....then hit the ENTER key on your
      computer keyboard to send the message.
      13.  If you're doing research in Alabama or the South, check out my website
      at:  http://huntsville.about.com/msubgenealogymenu.htm.
      14.  If you're interested in the Huntsville, AL area, please sign up for my
      Huntsville Highlights newsletter at:
      15.  Post your queries on our new forum--it never hurts to cover all the
      bases:  http://about.delphi.com/ab-huntsville  After you register (if you
      to post, you must register--you can enter the forum as a GUEST, if you
      aren't going to post), you click on the SURNAME section and then click on
      "reply" to post your own surname query.
      16.  The chats are NOT recorded at this time.  I don't record them for your
      privacy and protection....and so that you'll be comfortable that what you
      say in the chat room (and sometimes we get goofy) is confidential. If you
      want to save some info that you get in the chat....just highlight the text,
      then copy (control c) and paste (control v) into a word doc or email to
      yourself.  You have to do this before the screen scrolls completely out of
      the top!
      17.  If you have questions or suggestions, send me an email.  Your comments
      are welcome.
      18.  Have fun and visit the chat room often!
