Demonstrate Your Support of the Georgia Archives

The Georgia Genealogical Society will sponsor a rally in support of the Georgia Archives on Monday, Jan. 14, the opening day of the 2013 session of the Georgia General Assembly.

The rally will be held at the Washington Street entrance to the state capitol from 1-3 p.m. Only hand-held signs are allowed. Please come out and support your Georgia Archives.

If you cannot attend — and even if you can — please be sure to keep in touch with your state representative throughout the session.

Public pressure made the different last fall when the Archives was in danger of closing to the public.  Because of  all the phone calls, messages and petitions, Gov. Nathan Deal restored money to keep the Archives open — but only until the end of the fiscal year, June 30, 2012.

Public pressure is vital to ensure the enough money is restored to the budget to keep the Archives open.

If you have questions about the rally or about talking to your legislators, please contact Vivian at msaffold@bellsouth.net or Elizabeth at elizabeth.s.olson@gmail.com.

Thanks for your support.
