public System.Threading.Thread Thread1 = new Thread(new ThreadStart(AlertIt_One));
public System.Threading.Thread Thread2 = new Thread(new ThreadStart(AlertIt_Two));

public void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
Thread1.Start();
Thread2.Start();

Yes - you can raise events between the threads.

Or you can simply have a timer in the main thread checking the state of the thread:
i.e.
if (
Thread1.ThreadState == ThreadState.Unstarted ||
Thread1.ThreadState == ThreadState.Stopped ||
Thread1.ThreadState == ThreadState.Aborted ||
Thread1.ThreadState == ThreadState.Suspended )
{
  This thread is dead.
}

Sorry, I am working in too many languages at the same time - they are all starting to merge into one ;). That was a VB.NET example

have a look at 'Using events for thread synchronization'
