Maybe I can offer some stuff
I was Samech Figtree, was in COG 71-78 at TSC, Zion, Houston, The 72 Mardi Gras, Bromley, Italy; Bassetto, Assisi, Pojiosecco, Iran and Greece. I have some Pics. How do I send them, to who, how?

It would be great to have more pictures to document the earlier history of the COG. Since you were in Italy in 74 and 75, it's possible you met my parents there (they were Onesimus/Andrew Green and Adoraim).

If you have them scanned already, you can send them to me ([email protected]) or to editors at xfamily.org. If you don't have them scanned, you could mail them to me and I'll scan them and return them to you. Email me for more details on where to send them.

Thanks.

Yes, I knew your father and mother. Seems like it was way before Italy though, They were there also. We weren't close. I remeber that he was genarally nice, tall and Jewish, I think. Seems like I do remeber a tiny bit of unpleasantness associated with him, but I could be wrong. The thing is that I always felt like I could never really fall in with the general attitude, and was tolerated but not really entrusted with anything. I felt judged alot. I worked at a lot of headquarters colonies becaus I knew about printing and photography and helped set all that up, then I was pretty munch banished. I left in 78, just when it was getting weird, although I guess really, all of it was weird, from the beginning.
I have a scanner, and can scan them myself. I don't know if I can label or Indentify everything, but I'll try. It might take me a while. What is best? [email protected]%/100dpi? or what?

JPEGs (or any other standard format) are fine. Higher resolution (perhaps 300dpi) would be good to have especially for group pictures where we may want to only use part of the image and need to do some cropping or editing.

It's definitely possible you met them before they were in Italy. They were also in England, Germany, Israel and Greece. I would be interested in hearing the story of the "tiny bit of unpleasantness" if you remember it.

Hi Peter,

I have been doing a little research, and checking out some of the other stuff to do with COG and ex-COG's, and there is quite a bit. It seems like about 5 yaers ago whan I got my first computer and looked for stuff on line that there was nothing. I also looked at your site(s). And I thought long and hard about how to answer your question about, feeling of a little unpleasantness to do with remembering your father. I am not going to get into that too much specifically, in an open forum, but I wll say this:
There were some people that I liked very much in The Family, that were Kindred Spirits, who I could be comfortable around, be real, or myself(somehing that was pretty much forbidden in pratical terms). I was never a leader, and one of the reasons for that, is something like what my 'Flesh" Brother, who was a lifer in the U.S. Air Force, told me when I asked him why he never tried to be an officer, but spend 20 years in the Service as a Specialist ( A Sargeant). He said that he just wasn't a big enough asshole to be an officer.
There were "Shiners and Shamers", in "Litnessing", and I was a Shamer; I just could not feel right about the whole process; I would have rather just witness, any day, and I was dealt with a few times for having something wrong with my Spirit, but I don't remember anyone ever nailing down exactly what that was. The thing is, I learned to cope, by quickly sensing who I could be free around, and who I couldn't. A lot of peolple might rebuke you for being "in the flesh" or 'out of the spirit", and I learrned who was likely to be like that and was careful around them, and didn't get close to them. They were condescending, or judgemental, or were of a certain type of person that played the angles for advantage over other people to gain power. I played the angles, in a way, to just keep my sanity, and sense of self, and be free, to be happy. After all , it some ways, my whole experience was very interesting and fun. All that to say, this; Your father was a person who I avoided, who I learned would squelch me, and therefore did not get to know very well.
On to somehting else; I just got a broadband connection, and after digging for awhile found the stuff I was mentioning, so I will start to scan the Photos and be sending them soon.
