that is all there is to it.
When setting up the Facebook account, the Remembering the Shoals page was set up as a ‘personal’ page which is named Remembering Shoals. Later, there was an attempt to set up the page as an ‘Official” page which is named Remembering the Shoals. There was an attempt to delete the personal page but that also deleted the official page. This has been a real conundrum. Additionally, Facebook some how magically added a second ‘official’ page.
Since we are soon approaching the capacity for ‘friends’ on the personal page [Remembering Shoals], it is necessary to get our ‘friends’ to transfer over to the Official page. Attempts have been made to do this, but it was confusing for many. Then an attempt was made to ‘invite’ our friends over to our Official page. That was not successful either.
So many more features can be accessed through the Official page, plus there is no limit on the number of friends that can LIKE our page. We hope to add an Event section, for example. So, here comes the solution, hopefully.
Beginning immediately, you are asked to go to our Official Page of Remembering the Shoals. There would you please press the LIKE button at the top of your screen under the ‘search’ box. To aid in getting to the right page, you will find our profile picture (if the page does not have this graphic you are at the wrong page) to be the following:
The people who like our Official Page, even those who have already LIKEd us there, will have their name placed in the pot. And on November 25, 2011 a name will be drawn and a prize will be awarded for this promotion. The name drawn will have their family history researched* and presented to them in time for Christmas; and will be presented a voucher to have one old family photo either restored or improved. All that just for liking us.
And like Sally Field at the Oscars, we sure hope you do LIKE us.
*at least three generations of names and dates (as close to the 1930s as possible) will be needed to complete the family research
