The Contact Directory is divided into four (4) sections that can be accessed
from the navigation bar above. They are:
- Classmate Listings
- Classmates By Location (state-by-state and international)
- In Memoriam
- WANTED (a listing of still-to-be located classmates)
Alphabetical lists of all graduates (Class of 73) and participating fellow
classmates (Fellow Classmate) are used to move you directly to a contact
listing, an In Memoriam page listing, or the WANTED page. The Classmates
By Location page will also give you access to an individual's contact
Our In Memoriam page also serves to keep us in contact with the loved
ones of our departed classmates if they have expressed a desire to be
included in our class activities.
EMAIL TIP: With initial contact to classmates, it might
be helpful to identify Class-related email messages by putting 'NCHS'
at the beginning of the subject so the message does not get mistaken as
one from an unrecognized sender that may just get deleted as spam without
first being considered.
**An important 'heads up' to everyone is appropriate here. You may
be receiving emails and calls from individuals you have not heard from
in a very long time and are hesitant to respond without verification of
someone's identity as a classmate or participating fellow classmate. Please
do not hesitate to contact Lynn before opening email or responding to
calls to determine if the individual contacting you is in the database
and their information can be verified.
Using The Directory
The best place to start is with the alphabetical lists (Class of
73 and Fellow Classmate). To view an individual's contact listing
simply click on their name, and you will be taken to the appropriate
listings page. You can also access the contact listings from the
Classmates By Location page. Since this page only lists the names
of classmates and fellow classmates with known geographical locations,
it does not provide access to the In Memoriam or WANTED pages.
There are a few things to mention with regard to what you will
see in the contact listings.
- Only the primary contact information a classmate wants
to have accessible to others is shown, so you will either have
to contact them, or make a request through the website, to determine
if any additional information is available.
If no contact information
appears, that is at the classmate's request and, therefore, no contact information
will be provided from the class database.
The same is true of listings
with "Information Pending" notations. Until a classmate has provided
written verification of contact information and instructed what
contact information should appear in the website directory, no
contact information will be available upon request for that classmate.
The sole exception is that all classmates and fellow classmates
are listed on the Classmates By Location page if their location
- Individuals may prefer that some or all of their contact
information not appear on the website since it is a public forum,
but they do want their classmates to be able to obtain the information.
Wherever you see a PRIVATE indicator in a contact listing, it
means the information from that field is available upon request
only. Simply click on the classmate's name, and an email message
window will open for you to use to request the information. Requests
will be handled in accordance with the classmate's information
handling instructions on record in the class database.
- Because there are many automated information retrieval
programs that move around the Internet, email addresses in the
contact listings have been modified to replace the telltale "@"
symbol with the text string "(AT)" to reduce the likelihood of
data harvesting. Consequently, classmate email addresses are not
usable 'as is' and will have to be copied and pasted into an email
message. The (AT) portion of the address must then be manually
changed back to @ prior to sending a message.
