<possum> Well we have a few minutes before everybody shows up
<possum> Good time for a break
<possum> Did everybody get their mid term done?
<Crill> betcha.
<Irish> I finished mine a little while ago.
<Crill> um. . .heheh. . . not quite yet.
<possum> I still have to write my query
<possum> And I need to look over the names again
<possum> That's always the hardest part
<possum> However, form the look of some of my censuses this might be a skill I could use.
<possum> Think studying invisible handwriting would be better though :)
<Crill> Am still unclear about process for CEU credit. Do we send it in, or not?
<chirho> Well, I'm back. And also back home and recuperating. Did get pages updated yesterday, but haven't finished reading emails...
*** mc (mcroft@ttyC00.ott.igs.net) has joined #fian

<chirho> Welcome mc
<mc> thx! : )
<Crill> OK, possum.
<chirho> robyn1 !!!! :) :) :)
* chirho turns cartwheels of joy

<possum> Don't know whether she will ask group leader about homework, but I have saved all email and chirho will still have the BB up.
<mc> you guys are all registered in the course?
<chirho> This is a Virtual University course we're talking about here, mc
<Crill> So we send it to the group? The info so far seems contradictory.
<possum> chirho I am glad you were feeling better
<mc> ah... sorry...
<chirho> Crill, put it on our BB and send it to possum
<possum> What do you mean by back hoe?
<chirho> mc, stay around and welcome :)

<chirho> so don't know what's been going on ;(
<Crill> @-',-- flower for you, chirho
<possum> I told DH I was worried about you because you sounded so sick last Sunda!!

<Mugs> Hi flipper
<dirk2> Hi, finally got home in time to get here. 7:00 PM made the difference.:-)
<chirho> Irish, I have an extra rowboat here in Erie, PA, I'll try to email it over ;)
<possum> This is after all Northwest MO
<Irish> Thanks!
<possum> Good to see you Dirk
<Mugs> Hi dirk2
<dirk2> Weather has been very nice for Feb.but just started to rain.
<Crill> where are you, Dirk?
<possum> And great to know that the time change is woring out for everybody!
<flipper> Irish, I used to live in Lodi, CA and Stockton, CA
<dirk2> Victoria, BC, CAN
<Irish> They are pretty bad now too! Where do you live now?
<flipper> ND
<Mugs> I figured you must be on PST Dirk
<Crill> a fellow Canajun, eh!
<Mugs> eh
<possum> brb
<Irish> dirk2 - do you have any info on Vancouver birth certs?
-> [chirho] PING
<Irish> Where in ND?
<Mugs> Where are you from Crill?
<flipper> south of Fargo.....I grew up in Montana
<Irish> I lived in Three Forks MT and Minot ND for a while.
<Crill> Manitoba, Canada, Mugs.
* Mugs lives in Sunny Saskatchewan Canada
* mc is living in Ottawa ON CAN
<flipper> I remember you saying that about Minot, this past week in class
<Mugs> SW corner of the province
<Crill> Good deal . . . three CJ's here.
<Irish> Oh yah :]
<Irish> Must be getting old.
<flipper> mugs, how close to Calgary?
<Crill> four!
<Mugs> are you around Winnipeg Crill
<Mugs> I am about 500 kms from Calgary (300miles)
<Crill> 70 miles west, Mugs. the Metropolis of Miami, Manitoba.
<Mugs> Crill have you ever heard of a place called Purves or Burves?
<flipper> I saw you said southwest corner.....that's the only town I know of in the area :)
<Mugs> Flipper its only 5 hours by car ....lol
<Crill> Not in Mb, Mugs. There's a Purvis in Sask, isn't there.
<flipper> Crill, I think I live abooouuuttt 300 miles from you....I think
<dirk2> Irish - BC Vital Stats has put a lot of datao
<Crill> Was in Ottawa last weekend, mc! Awful, the tree damage.
*** Peg (DavePeg@bos-ma8-26.ix.netcom.com) has joined #Fian
<Irish> I know - but this is one for 1919 - and they want $50.00 (don't really want to pay that much)!
<mc> yes, it looks a little depressing...
<Crill> Hey, practically neighbours, flipper! We've probably driven by.
<chirho> :) Peg
<Mugs> I'm not sure Crill
<Crill> Especially from the air. Unreal, mc.
*** Peg is now known as MathAce
<MathAce> be back in a minute.
<flipper> I remember when I lived in CA just driving 10 miles was way tooooo far. People laugh at us when we go to buy groceries about 35 miles away....I love it!!!!
<mc> yes, i guess it would look totally different from the air... but it sure was pretty when it was happening!
<Crill> Why, mugs? You know someone there?
<dirk2> oops hit wrong key :-) --lot of data online URL is under "BC Archives"
<Crill> Yup, flip. Good prairie country.
<Crill> Weird, eh, mc?? The beauty of destruction . . .
<Irish> Tried the BC archives - the birth date is too recent to be on their
<Irish> site
<chirho> Jack London started one of his books with a few poetic prose lines about the northern winter's beauty and dangers..
<mc> yes, it is strange, so beautiful... but people suffering
<flipper> As I said b?4 I grew up in MT. when I'd mention the long drives, my BIL would say no way, how can you exist? Boy, am I glad there's a lot of unenlightened people out there
<Crill> and then there's "Sam McGee"!
<robyn1> gotta go guys, good to see everyone again
<Mugs> Crill I am trying to read some notes my grandfather wrote. They are all in Russian except for the place name and i think it says Purves or Burves Man
<chirho> Thanks for coming robyn, come back soon :)
<robyn1> ok
*** robyn1 has quit IRC (Leaving)
<possum> And the night on the Marge of Lake Lebarge when I cremated Sam McGee :)
<Crill> Hm. Let me check mymap, Mugs. Could be one I don't know.
<Mugs> and its the first time I've been warm...
<flipper> Speaking of Russian...... I have a question that I feel I should have asked a VERY LONG time ago.......
<possum> My grandparents were from TN
<possum> Not the Irishment the other side
<Crill> And there wasn't a breath in that land of death; as I hurried horror-driven . . .
<possum> Wonder how they liked their first NW MO winter?
<flipper> My grandmother was born in Odessa..... But everybody claims her as German/Russian..... Please explain....
*** Temp (WmTempCo@168-132-107.ipt.aol.com) has joined #Fian
<chirho> I used to find em pretty COLD possum !
<chirho> wb Temp
<dirk2> BC Archives Home Page -- http://www.bcarchives.gov.bc.ca/index.htm
<Temp> well i'm here and glad to be so
<possum> A lot of Germans had emigrated to Russia
<Mugs> Flipper there is a religios group known as Mennonites who went from Germany to Russian and them to N. america
<possum> So she might have been of German ancestry although she was from Russia
<Crill> Ok, what do I know. There is a Purvis, and not that far from here *blush*. It's a very small village, right near the US border, center of the province.
<flipper> okay, so is it like my Irish searching......search Russia and then Germany? My grandmother's family were devout Catholic
<Mugs> Is it on a current map Crill?
<possum> :)
<Crill> Is that where your people settled, mugs?
<possum> Well this has been a great winter chirho So far
<possum> Too much mud though
<Mugs> no but my grandfather spent some time there before he met my grandmother
<flipper> I have the same problem with my Grandfather (Austrian/Hungarian)
<chirho> Up here, too, no days where we were subzero, the bay isn't even frozen
<Crill> Yes, mugs. A good one.
<Crill> Just south of Crystal City, Pilot Mound.
<dirk2> I forget criteria births 100 yrs - deaths 20 yrs -marriages to come soon (I think)
<Mugs> Crystal City!! thats where he met my grandmother
<possum> Well flipper Hungary was once part of the Austro Hungarian empire
<Crill> aha, mugs! The plot thickens!
<possum> Before WWI
<Mugs> Crill
<Mugs> Crill
<Mugs> Crill
<flipper> I know this is Irish research.....but, where do you start to search with things like Aust/Hung
<Crill> The towns are about 10 miles apart.
<Crill> Hey, neat, Mugs!! Is this the plot thickening??
<possum> When did they come flipper?
<flipper> 1900
<Mugs> I am so happy to know that
<Mugs> Crill it is a rainbow hug from me to you
<possum> Well they would have been born in what was then the Austro-Hungarian Empire
<Crill> Great, mugs . . . am warm all over.
<possum> Actually they might be neither Austrian or Hungarian.
<flipper> she was born in Odessa, Russia....they met in America
<possum> The empire included lots of other nationalities
<flipper> possum, what do you mean.....
-> [chirho] PING
<possum> In fact that was one of the factors which began WWI.
<Mugs> I wondered first of all if it was a town and then I wondered if it still existed or had gone the way of so many prairie towns
<Mugs> faded off into the sunset after the elevators disappeared
<possum> The heir to the Austro-Hungarian emoire was assinated by a Serb.
<flipper> supposedly he was born in Austria (I've been told in a town called--Istvonfeldt----can't find the town anywhere
<Crill> It must be very small; the town identifier is in the <200 population category.
<possum> Although Serbia was a country a lot of Serbs were included in the empire
<chirho> flipper, have you looked for an Autro-Hungarian list on rootsweb? If there is one, you're likely to get some answers there..
<possum> Actually they are still having a lot of problems over there today
<flipper> I was on the Hungary list for a whie and that's where I found the town wasn't
<possum> My sister an army captain is on a break from Bosnia right now
<possum> But she will have to go back!!
<Mugs> Crill I have sooo little infor on my grandfather. He died in 1935 and his info went with him
<chirho> flipper, I have some URL's for around the southeastern Europe area... will try to find them for you
<chirho> Maybe one will lead to more?
<Mugs> This is another little piece you have given my tonight
<flipper> thanks, I really appreciate any help :)
<possum> Did you look for a map the empire in 1900 flipper?
<Crill> Have you checked Mb vital stats, Mugs? At that date, they should have some info on him.
<dirk2> Irish - Thereis a new site up called BC Cemetary Finding Aid
<flipper> I don't see any of the newbies in here....did any reply?
<Irish> Where is it?
<possum> The empire included several counties or parts of countries
<chirho> Crill made it :)
<Crill> When did he come, Mugs? Was he part of the Mennonite emigration?
<flipper> no, I haven't possum
<Mugs> He died in Sask
<possum> So they probably weren't from what is now Hungary
<Crill> Newbie here, flip.
<Mugs> No as a matter of fact he was a Catholic
<dirk2> http://www.islandnet.com/bccfa/homepage.html
<Crill> Hm. Any kids born here?
<dirk2> got that
<flipper> oh my.....you weren't sounding like a newbie....... :)
<Mugs> Yes my Dad and his brothers and sisters
<Crill> I bluff well, flip! :]
<possum> flipper maybe we can find something on the web tomorrow
<Irish> Thanks dirk2 :)
<Crill> In Mb?
<possum> We can both look and email each other
* mc whispers: Can I ask a stupid question?
<flipper> thanks, possum.....I knew better Crill....I've seen you around the rooms :)
* chirho whispers, sure, mc
<Mugs> No in Sask. Grandparents came to Sask in 1923 or 24
<mc> lol -- what class are you guys taking?
<possum> I don't have anyone from there so I don't know anything about gen research just history.
<flipper> is there really such a thing as a stupid question-----hope not or I'd have the award!!!!!
* chirho says this group is taking Practical Internet Genealogy
<possum> Think depending on where they were from there might be some pretty good records though
<Crill> There are a lot of town histories done in the last few years, around centennials - might even be something from Purves.
<mc> ah.. so it encompasses all aspects of the net?
<chirho> yep, mc
<possum> Especially if they came as late as 1900
<mc> cool!
<Crill> please, Mc! join the rest of us sq askers!
<possum> flipper
<flipper> yes...um.....
<possum> That is not a STUPID question
<mc> what's a "sq asker" ?
<chirho> be a sqasker, not a squasher! :)
<possum> Those are good questions
<Mugs> That is a good point Crill. I could probably write to the mayor of Purvis and see if they made up a book
<flipper> I knew that.....I saw mc whispering and just had to comment....but you have to admit, I have asked some ddooosssers
<chirho> ;)
<possum> Tat could be pretty interesting research flipper
<mc> lol sq = stupid questions -- LOL
<flipper> what? Stupid Questions? :)
<mc> : )
<chirho> right mc :)
<possum> No Austro Hungarians
<possum> and German Russians
<possum> :)
<Temp> leaving see ya later
*** Temp has quit IRC (Leaving)
<chirho> he leaves tooooo fawst!
<chirho> fasst
<chirho> fast!
* mc giggles :}}
<flipper> I know....I'm feeling better tonight so I'm being "catty" just have dh bring me another saucer of milk....
<chirho> heheheh
<possum> I always think the research is as fun or even more fun than actually finding them
<Mugs> Flipper I have some urls on Germans from Russia would you like them?
<possum> You learn all kinds of things along the way :)
<flipper> but you know possum.....if I did those topics, I'd get overwhelmed, and would have to cut out a few of my things and probably not get to meet with all YOU wonderful people ;)
<Crill> Might want to try Crystal City or Manitou, mugs. Don't think Purves would have any kind of Council.
<flipper> I'd love them Mugs
<possum> Then I think you should wait until later to start ion your other research flipper :)
<possum> After all we have a lifetime to search
<possum> If we find them right off, the fun will be over
<Crill> Hubby suggests Pilot Mound - some good historians there.
<chirho> but possum, it takes longer to get on back to Adam ;)
<mc> any of you guys part of my family... I've been searching everywhere for them!
<flipper> mugs, send them to far@abercrombie.polaristel.net

<Crill> mugs, try this by snail mail: Nick Didkowski, Snowflake, Man. R0G 2K0 He is the municipal councillor for the Purves area, and knows it well.
<flipper> I caught your cyber flu this past week....all intentions for doing research went down the drain, chirho
<Irish> Not yet ready to start coding - but soon.
<possum> I think it is coming along and we have some newcomers tonight Irish and Crill :)
<Mugs> thats just wonderful Crill. thanks
<chirho> oooh, I'm sorry flipper. I did cover my mouth when I coughed...

*** Murph (dws@ip3-eug1-28.teleport.com) has joined #Fian
<Crill> When Irish eyees are smiilllling . . . sure, tis like a morn in May . . .
<Irish> :)
<flipper> Since last Sunday's meeting, I've seen a LOT of messages out there re: Co. Antrim, listing web sites, etc.....I've saved a few of them if anyone needs some sites for Co, Antrim......who is doing this county for their topic
<MathAce> That's me, flp, but haven't really coordinated anything yet.
<possum> I know we have somebody on Atrim
<chirho> don't remember, but send the URL's, I'll add em to the nubbin page
<possum> Cause I member seeing it
<MathAce> There is quite a bit on the net, trying to organize how to handle.
<MathAce> I've got Antrim
<chirho> MathAce! Right. Did you find the nubbin?
<flipper> let me know if you want these addy's.....I've saved them when I've thought of it.....
<possum> Hey Canadians
<MathAce> send them along, flip, that would be great...already have about 40
<Crill> yah, possum?
<Mugs> yes
*** Murph has quit IRC (Leaving)
<possum> Did you know that Vickie L is thinking of starting up the Isish to Canada list again?
<MathAce> Yes, I sent a note that I would be interested.
<possum> Sorry Irish teehee
<MathAce> Ron, that should interest you.
<Irish> I contacted her about that. Have not received any info back yet.
<Mugs> No tell us more possum
* flipper whispers----boy, am I glad I'm keeping mine just to the "basics" of County Down history
<Crill> sounds good, possum. where?
<RonC> I replied withing minutes that I was go for that list..
<possum> I will email info out tomorrow so all you Canadians can write to Vickie!
<Mugs> is that quick ronc? hehehe
<possum> So she will know that ppl are interested
<Irish> Just checked - received this re the Irish/Canadian list: The Irish-Canada list will not be a mailing list. It will be a list. Here
<Irish> is part of the "What is the Irish-Canada List":
<Irish> "You and others can search the IRISH-CANADIAN LIST by surname, date, location
<Irish> in Ireland or Canada, and perhaps get a clue to further research.  In
<Irish> contributing to the list, you should be prepared to share your genealogical
<Irish> information with others.  Your address is given in the list so others can
<Irish> contact you directly."
<Irish> The Irish-Canada (probably will include Scottish as well) is for sharing
<Irish> information.
<Irish> Sorry - so long!
<Crill> tx, possum.
<flipper> addy, possum?
<dirk2> I'm chasing McKitricks in Co. Down, c- 1650 - 1850 (plantation from Scotland)
<possum> I will have to email the addy cause I don't have it to hand
<mc> are you guys making web pages of all the urls, etc that you are collecting
<Irish> Will be!
* flipper whispers to MA---I'll email some over to you sometime this week....not for a few days though
<possum> I guess Irish has left
<mc> : )
<chirho> mc, go to http://www.geocities.com/~fiannag/ and see what we do! :)
<Mugs> I look forward to that possum
<mc> k, i'll do that!
<Irish> I'm still here!
<flipper> :)
<possum> Well we are using we are collecting URLs
<possum> But we are also doing research
<possum> on our own
<possum> We did a link site first term
<possum> The guide is a little more complex
<chirho> link site http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Meadows/4404/
<possum> As I said we are writing "papers" to on subjects that interest us!!
<possum> As well as linking to compatible web sites
<possum> Go to the site chirho gave you
<possum> She has a great explanation of what we are doing
<flipper> example.....rather than putting a map of a site in and having "copyright" problems....find a map on the web that covers your topic and put a link in.
<possum> chirho is Marthe's original explanation of the Guide still up?
<chirho> Not that I know of. But Marthe is planning some revisions in the basic idea.
<dirk2> Would it be cricket to pass that site on to my Gen. Soc. Irish SIG.
<chirho> We'll be alright, just a matter of some recoding..
<chirho> OH YES :) Dirk
<dirk2> great
<chirho> The guide is an effort to draw together all sources and all other guides, and be usefule to both newbies and seasoned genealogists.
<chirho> fiannag site belongs to anyone in the group :) We can all promote it.
<chirho> because we're all making it.
<possum> k
<RonC> Thanks for letting me listen in, tight for time tonight...will stop back again if I may...
<chirho> ;) Ron
<chirho> glad to have you
<flipper> I'm always talking about it in the Ireland chat on Mondays....
<possum> We would be glad to have you Ron :)
<MathAce> G'night Ron.
<chirho> :) flipper
<dirk2> I think it is a wonderful tool for those interested in Irish research.
<Mugs> night RonC
* RonC fades slowly into the sunset....with an appreciative wave of the hat..
*** RonC (c@Toronto06-55.Better.Net) has left #Fian
<possum> flipper hla advertised Irish chat on gen Tips so maybe she will get more ppl
<possum> Gen-Tips is a big group
<flipper> she puts out addys about once a month
<Crill> gotta go. Night, all.
<chirho> maybe someone would get her to put fiannag site on her list?
<MathAce> my biggest problem is that I'm at work when the Irish chat is on.
<possum> I like it I will try to remember tomorrow
<Mugs> Good night Crill and thanks again eh
<chirho> Goodnight Crill, glad you came. :)
*** Crill (arlz@ has left #Fian
<possum> If ther are no more questions I think we should adjourn so our
<flipper> I think we definitely need to get these chat sessions (ie. Ireland chat) and there times and locals in our Guide or the treehouse
<dirk2> 'nite crill
<Irish> MathAce - I am too - sometimes I am able to sneak into the chat!
<possum> Recuperating members can get some rest
<chirho> flipper, it's on the find.html page
<MathAce> I can't always get to the computer at 4pm....busy time.
<flipper> what about ALL the other wonderful genealogy chat sites
<possum> However, if our recovering members want to chat..:)

<possum> They were going to have it early in the term?
<dirk2> I'd like to see a list of all appropriate Chat site on Fianna-L or at least the ones that are considered the best
<Irish> Need to break up the usual Sunday night boy arguments! See you all soon! Hope you feel real better soon chirho :)
<flipper> Mugs, I sent out notes, not much response

*** Mugs sets mode: +o Crill
<Crill> what is this setting mode thing?
<Crill> sounds scarey.
<Mugs> It means everyone in here has ops
<Crill> Like aiming a cruise missle or something.
<Crill> ops?
<Crill> optics, optometrists, ??
*** Joins: robyn1 (rdixon@modem032.ts.spin.net.au)
<Mugs> nothing bad...it just means you have some control over who is in the room
<flipper> so that if somebody with ops gets kicked out somebody already here can reops them
<flipper> operations
<Mugs> if someone gets rowdy or rude the op can kick them out
<Crill> aha. control freaks . . .

* flipper whispers.....but not in #history, as I found I ran into time problems...

<echos> I hope I will be able to post some stuff on the "Scotch/Irish of Ulster (undertakers
<flipper> sounds good...did I tell you, that for a VERY belated Xmas present...4 days b/4 Valentine's...I got a German-Russian Cookbook, with a bunch of Historical Society info in it?

<possum> Yes you did!!
<possum> Sounds neat!!

<echos> And very comprehensive
<flipper> also Mugs sent me a bunch of addys....one for a university that's only 30 miles from me... :)
<possum> The ones on the countries are positively stuffed with useful info and only a dollar.
