I just wanted to let you all know that The History Channel will be airing
a special on genealogy, Monday, Sept. 17th. It will be shown again, Tues.
Sept. 18th @ 12:00 am, and Fri. Sept. 22nd @ 12:00pm. Please check your
local listings for exact times in your area. The synopsis follows.
HISTORY CHANNEL-- Monday , September 17 9:00 PM-11:00 PM
Special/Other, 120 Mins.
Benjamin Bratt narrates a 2-hour special that combines the history and
mystery of names with a genealogical search. Traveling from ancient China to
medieval Europe, from Africa to the Wild West, we search through slavery,
the Indian Wars, and the great wave of U.S. immigration. As actor William
Baldwin and "Braveheart" screenwriter Randall Wallace trace their family
trees, we learn the genealogist's tools and look to the future. Can we move
beyond written records to prehistoric times? TV G
Original Airdate: September 17, 2001.

I hope that all of you, today, have halfway recovered from yesterday,
though I know our lives will never be the same. I appreciate all of you who
have responded, and I am anxious to hear from more of you. But, I'm afraid,
it's time to get back to the matters at hand.
After 5:00 p.m. (CDT) today, all responses about yesterday, should be
directed to me, personally, or if you would like to continue to correspond
amongst each other, I have started a new list, at Yahoo-Groups, strictly
dealing with this issue. That way, this list can continue on with it's
research. I look forward to hearing from each and every one. You will find
my address at the end of any and all postings. It is philsbarbie(a)cei.net
This is FAR from over, and my prayers continue for everyone involved in
this disaster. I continue to hope that our members and their families, are
