Re: Conrad Lint

Hi Ginny,

It is a group of researchers bound together by their interest in the Lint name, being the descendents of Conrath/Conrad Thomas Lint and his brothers. I expet that if we found other Lint/Lind groups we would be interested, but not so, if they deride from Scandinavia. Our Linds come from Germany and very soon soon--likely within the first generation, became Lint; the German pronounciation of the final'd' being pronouced like our 't'.

Our leader is George, aka le Flounder Lint who is currently in Germany until about November (married to a German wife and lives there half the time. He can get e-mail, though, still with his old address; he has a laptop. George is the one who collects all the information that the various lines have on them and every so often, he produces an "electronic book" with updated information on what we have on all the lines.This November, I believe he intends to put one out on CD rather than the two-disks that he used before.

The subgroups are subdivided according to their various lines of accent and are supposed to be sharing information as they get it, but many times, there is not a whole lot of communication between the researchers, except through George. One is always free to
communicate and others will answer questions that one might have, but there is not a huge amount of talk flowing unless George is around to stimulate the flow, (Or so it appears to me.) Still, I think it is a good thing, and I believe there is a wealth of information that we collectively hold, especially with George.

You can reach George at < lint@nuc.net >
