We meet on the IIGS server. This current group is not meeting.Help getting started with IRC is served up by a good site
Other fians may also meet there, but we have been asked to notify MaMaT, (who hangs out in IIGS #Genealogy and makes the hottest hillbilly coffee!) Correct email for that is firstname.lastname@example.org, rigs, please let her know when your group plans to be there!
If you need to convert GMT times to your local time, check this chart!
And find out about the Millenium Bug!!
You can get mIRC at http://www.mirc.co.uk/get.html
If you are using Windows 3.1, you should get the 16 bit, otherwise the 32 bit version should work for you.
ANOTHER GROUP HAS A NUMBER OF CHAT SESSIONS (and Fianna folk are often there):
There are "topic" chats in the #RBTGenealogy channel every evening of the week, at either 9 or 10pm ET. We also have #Hawksnest, an "open" chatroom for more unstructured chatting. Most of the chatters use mIRC, written by Kaled Mardem-Bey. For those chatters without mIRC, we have a Java link into #Hawksnest. We have a web site for the weekly schedule, as well as several web sites maintained by the chat hosts. These sites (listed below) provide depth to our chats.
chatroom Java link
(with a hotlink to be added to our mailing list)
Shamrocks and Pipers (Scots/Irish chat)
Surfing the Net for Your Ancestors
Occasionally we have guest hosts who present topical chats. We have had chats on The Origin or Surnames, and the Origin of Naming Practices, among others. Every once in a while we have a spontaneous "mini presentation" as a treat. We are always looking for new topics and potential chat hosts, so if anyone reading this is interested in hosting a weekly chat on a topic they are reasonably well-versed in, please e-mail us through the e-mail link on our Java link page.
ICQ is a free on line chat software on the internet. It is similar to aol's instant messenger, but differs in that it offers the user a multitude of things like an icq home page for its users and icq message boards in different catagories, including a genealogy message board (under the family catagory).
