I agree! Let's have a Chat Club! Genealogy is about far more than just names and
dates, and sharing memories and family stories is a great way to get a picture of the
people who are our ancestors.
It does need to be separate from this mailing list. I've been on a very relaxed list,
where posts relating in any way to life in the area are allowed (and sometimes they
wander waay off topic) - it was just fascinating! However, the "serious"
genealogists did not like it. My problem was that it has an enormous number of posts
(over 1000 a month) so I unsubscribed and just read the archives when I have lots of time
to spare. Of course, now I feel like I am missing out because I can't join in.
And it would be fantastic if we could display photos .....

Great idea, Liz. Will talk to the forum guru's and see how e can set up
a chat room for us forum members to chat and keep u posted. Else we
could set up a private chat room using any of the many service providers
and use it too. Lets put on our thinking caps and see how we can make it
work. Of course those having Hotmail or Yahoo or AOL access do hv the
privilege of chatting online using the various Instant messaging
Services provided by these services. I do agree that we need an unique
place to chat of our own.

Well, how would we do this? Just toss out an idea
and see who responds? Or would that tie up
the "digitised waves"? We did discuss what being _Burgher_
meant awhile back.
Fazil, maybe you could guide us on this? Don't want to violate rules.
What I find in talking about Lanka is that we usually find
out: "Oh, you're related to him/her?". Chatting seems to help
the searching. Greetings to all from a very cold Netherlands.
