Hi Hovik - Thanks for all your cool contributions here... great stuff! --Raffi 19:28, 16 May 2006 (PDT)
Thank you for your kind words. It is more than my pleasure to contribute to the site in any way I can, and I shall continue to do so. I should say I appreciate the work you have done! Last year when my wife and I were on one of our trips to Armenia, we used your Armeniapedia and Cilicia sites to travel throughout Armenia, and provide fantastic information on each site we visited. We travelled to more than 80 sites in less than 10 days. The vast majority of the sites we visited were unknown by the 'average diasporan' but even unknown by local villagers and such. I really appreciated that I got to see the not-so-touristy sites. I also spoke with my wife at the time about offering you and your sites the use of my photographs that were taken last year (provided I am listed as a source) at many of those sites. Would you be interested in this?
I think I heard somewhere that you were living in the Diaspora and then moved to Armenia permanently. I don't know if that's really the case. Is it? I ask because that is my plan actually. I am a 4th generation American descendant of Genocide Survivors. I just finished my BA in Management in Michigan State University, and as soon as my wife finishes her PhD we hope to find adequate employment in Armenia and relocate there. If the above information about you is in fact correct, and you could give me any tips, I'd really appreciate it. By the way I do use your "living in Armenia" page often - thanks for that.
Looking forward to your response.
I was wondering if there is a way to get your e-mail. I think it'd be easier to communicate some suggestions I have that way.
P.S. Out of curiosity, where in Orange County did you live?
- Hi Hovik, I lived in the city of Orange (where I'm typing from now :-) If you need to email me, you can go to my talk page and on the left below the ads, click on "Email this user". Email me your email address and we can use that medium instead... --Raffi 06:52, 29 December 2006 (PST)
- Well google gets double the hits with Ian I'm not sure about the suffix is that the original name? --Nareklm 09:37, 21 July 2007 (PDT)
