Fellow genealogists and anyone concerned with preserving our sacred cemeteries,
Time Warner and The History Channel are sponsoring a 'Save Our History' grant
award for which people can go online and cast their vote. Voting ends THIS
FRIDAY April 27th, so time is short.
We were fortunate that our restoration project was chosen as a finalist. The JCOGS is the only genealogy society or cemetery project to be chosen as one of the five finalists, so I truly hope that you will go to the Time Warner website and cast your vote for the James Cemetery project. If awarded this grant, we will use 100% of the grant to begin installing an antique-style aluminum alloy fence around the perimeter in order to help halt further desecration of this sacred and historic burial ground.
You can read more about our James Cemetery project at the Time Warner 'Save Our
History' voting website. Please unite with us as a group of genealogists
concerned about the ever-increasing destruction of our cemeteries by VOTING for
us at the website below. And note also that ANYONE with Internet access can VOTE
so please forward this email to your genealogy circle of friends and ask THEM to
