Roots Chat Meet Dublin 2007 Friday - Sunday
« on: Saturday 15 April 06 17:43 BST (UK) »
Steady progress is being made with the organization of this event. It has been decided that June, July or August are the most suitable months as schools will be on holiday which will enable children to accompany their parents to this event. You are all welcome to blame me if this event proves not to be a really great one. :D

Hi Chris,

It is not your job to make this a wonderful event.  It will be up to each and every one of us who attends to make it a great event.  I think we will get out of the event as much as we put in.  There is no reason at all for this event not ending up as THE EVENt of 2007 for all Irish Genealogists.

Mary.

Hiya Mary,

Thanks for the support there. There is still a lot of work to be done. The word needs to be spread further amongst the Rootschat members. I agree it is up to each and every one of us who attend ... we are still somewhat short of each and every ones of us..I have just noticed a message come in saying 30,000 Rootschatters...anyone seen them anywhere ??? Are they hiding in Tyrone among the bushes ??? the Sloblands of Wexford ??? The Orchard County of County Armagh ??? the Lowlands of the Ards Peninsula ??? The Ring of Kerry ??? somewhere up Macgillicuddy's Reeks ??? they must be somewhere and there must be some more Irish people amongst that 30,000 too. Any suggestions as to how we go about finding them ???

I do not understand the voting system. Could someone explain it please or should I keep my mouth firmly closed ??? I voted once and the poll registered 4, someone else voted and it only registered 1 .I promise I was not cheating :D

All the Best, Chris

Hi Chris,

I would imaging quite a lot of the 30.000 are NOT in Ireland.  I'm sure if you do get this up and running there might be some people willing to come from abroad.  However we do neeed to find out who, in Ireland, would be interested.

Mary.

Hi Chris,

That's a good start.  My surname is actually MERNE.  Lett was my Granny's name!

Hi Chris,

My Canadian friend who lives here in Ireland is not interested in Genealogy.  My American friend who still lives in the USA is quite interested in Genealogy but I think she's coming over for a visit this year.  However I've met a lady on this site who I think could be persuaded to come.

Mary.

Hiya Mary,

Your American Friend might be interested in the Belfast Meet on 29th July. Linenhall Library in the morning,
City Hall in the afternoon from approximately 2.00 - 3.00 then a quick visit to the Ulster Museum.

All the Best, Chris
