If you have been reading the news in this newsletter and elsewhere, you probably already know of the threats to move, reduce, and/or close the Library of Michigan. Many genealogists have already protested and those protests are growing louder.
In meetings held during the Federation of Genealogical Societies/ Arkansas Genealogical Society Annual Conference in Little Rock this past week, the Records Preservation and Access Committee (a joint committee of the Federation of Genealogical Societies and the National Genealogical Society) has initiated a petition drive in support of the Library of Michigan.
Genealogists from within and without Michigan are encouraged to sign the online petition. You are encouraged to sign this online petition NOW.
