HARD TO FIGURE OUT DEAF FAMILY TREE
    There are many deaf parents that have deaf children.
And these deaf children marry deaf spouses, and again,
have deaf children, and so on.
    And 15-20 years later, when a deaf member sits down
and tries to figure out his family tree, he may have
a hard time.
    DeafDigest editor has spoken with several deaf
individuals, those from big deaf family backgrounds.
They often do not remember who married which and who
married whom and so on.

SIGN LANGUAGE AT A SENIOR CITIZENS HOME
    This is a true story. A deaf person moved to a
senior citizens home. He was the only deaf person
in that home.
    The staff members all took sign language classes
to communicate with him.
    This same senior citizens home has a deaf housekeeper.
No one bothered to learn signs to communicate with the
deaf employee.
    Why?

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
Recently I had a medical appointment.
I emailed to our local transportation service to request transportation.
The email came back with “Out of the office.” And left me one choice
to make a phone call.
I used a new software which has both video and text.  I made a phone call
via a relay service.
How it works is that I simply use ASL and the video interpreter replies
via text.
This improves accessibility for me!
The day for my doctor appointment came and the driver showed up one hour
early.
My appointment was 11:15 AM.
They had 10 AM instead of April 10!  During the return trip no ride
showed.
The sweet interpreter made phone call and interpreted for me.
“Where is my ride?”
They said the driver arrived at 11:15 AM and I was not there.  My
appointment was 11:15!
With no breakfast or lunch I arrived home close to 2 PM!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
