31 January 2007 Reminder

By makas_nc - Posted on 21 September 2006

Right now the group is hovering around 160 members. . .but I predict
(please group members make me a false prophet). . .I predict that on the
32nd of January 2007 there will be 35% fewer members in the group. .
.WHY??? Because 35% of the new members will fail to do one of three things:

1) Understand that when they agreed to send in a representative tree
showing their connection to our area of research that I completely meant
they needed to do this within a reasonable time (i.e. 31 January 2007)
or be removed from the group.

2) They failed to communicate with me (makas(remove)@nc.rr.com or
moderator(remove)@nuestrosranchos.com) making a reasonable request for
additional time.

3) Send in their Genealogy Report.

Now I just want to take a second to say that the Nuestros Ranchos group
DOES NOT want your life's genealogical work sent in. Nor do we require
you to send in your gedcom (though several have and this is becoming a
popular way of meeting the requirement). All that is required is a
"REPRESENTATIVE" tree preferably in "genealogy report" form in either
.doc or .rtf format showing your connection to Jalisco, Zacatecas,
and/or Aguascalientes. This representative tree can be written into a
Word document or just into an email. It doesn't have to be fancy and can
be as simple as just listing your grandparents and great grandparents
along with their places and times of birth. . .heck while you're at it
toss in a few of their children and siblings just to flesh it out a bit.
That will take you all of 20-30 minutes to compose if you are a
"serious" researcher, but if you are not, well you might have trouble
and might need to strive toward becoming one by getting more involved.

If you are a new researcher and are in the process of finding
information all you need to do is send me an email and ask for an
extension. Believe me my bark is very much worse than my bite.

Another Note: When you send in your Genealogy Report make absolutely
sure that you "DO NOT INCLUDE LIVING RELATIVES" in the report!!! Very
important for security and privacy sake!!!

If you want to complete the whole process yourself (RECOMMENDED) then go
to the "Files" and then to "Members Genealogies" and see the "WRITTEN IN
STONE" format for the way your folder should look: Your Name (places of
your Nuestros Ranchos research) - PLEASE FOLLOW THIS FORMAT or I'll go
in later and change it. After you see the correct format then go to the
home page or any page of the site and click on "create content" and then
click on "File Folder."

If you have any questions about how to do this ASK!

sincerely and seriously getting down to business,

joseph - moderator

ps: If anyone out there would like to make a translated copy of this
please email me.

pps: i'll be sending out this reminder in October, November, December,
and finally one last time at the beginning of 2007. Probably around the
24th of November I'll start sharpening my Ax.

For those of you, who need help help with preparing or compiling t your information, for your genealogy, just ask!!! There are many here in the group, including myself that would be willing to help you out.

Hi Jonathan!

Not on the same subject of the cut-off date for Joseph to start chopping
:-) ......BUT.....Mickey and I are looking forward to seeing you again
while we are in Salt Lake City during the week of October 8-15th! In fact,
there are a couple of people at my local FHC that are planning to go
also......they are not member of Nuestros Ranchos but after hearing me talk
so much about this trip when I go to the local FHC.....they got all enthused
and decided to go too!

See you then!

Josie in San Antonio

Just as a clarification... members cannot delete their own accounts as
of now. They would have to ask a moderator to delete their account
for them.

But yes, anyone who has changed their mind about the commitment they
made, please let us know so that we can start cleaning up the
membership list.

We would love to have everyone stay, but rules are rules and everyone
needs to contribute just a bit. I see that Jonathan has offered to
help people with the compilation of their genealogies. Anyone who is
really serious about research but is stuck or doesn't know where to
start should take him up on his offer.

Or simply post some questions to the group, even if you think they are
basic questions. There are many talented, knowledgeable and generous
people in th group.

thanks, I thought I knew a bit about it, but now realize I don't.

I read that Jonathan was one of many in the group willing to help. But
knowing Jonathan's past action in the group yes he is willing to help.
As Jonathan has said and as Pat also said there is a lot of help within
the group. One only needs to be a bit of a squeaky wheel to get oiled.
Speak up everyone in need of help. Tell us what you are looking for and
where and the details of your search. I might not reply but there are
other talented members of the group that certainly will try.

yes I couldn't agree more. lots of giving people in the group.
Especially you Arturo. thanks again for the beautiful site, you can
never say thanks enough for that. It probably would have taken many many
hundreds or a few thousand dollars to build what he built on a strictly
volunteer basis.
