The General Assembly is in recess today in order to finish work on the state budget. Tomorrow is the final day of the 2014 session.
As you probably know, this blog is sponsored by the Georgia Genealogical Society. It was started with the goal of providing information about the crisis at the Georgia Archives. That goal will continue, with information and issues being posted as needed.
Beginning today, we also will use this blog to post information about GGS activities and other news of interest to the genealogical and related communities.
