Our chats have become VERY successful and it was suggested that we expand
them. I have now scheduled the following weekly chat times:
Mondays 9-11 pm (Central)
Thursdays 8-10 pm (Central)
Saturdays 3-5 pm (Central)
FYI--Eastern Time is an hour later and Pacific is 2 hours earlier. I put an
afternoon time on Saturday to try to give the working people and people in
other countries a chance to join us.

walk you through it.
If you have books or CD's and can do lookups--please email me privately at
least 24 hours before the scheduled chat and let me know what you have and

will be available on which nights.
You have to attend the chat to get a lookup. PLEASE don't email me with

I hope to see you all at the chat! BTW, the chat room is open 24 hours a
day, so feel free to stop in and see if any other genealogists are in the
room or practice with a few people before the BIG events!
Let me know if you have any questions.
