Fellow genealogists and anyone concerned with preserving our sacred cemeteries,
The History Channel and Time Warner are sponsoring a 'Save Our History' grant
award for which anyone 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
Link for voting:

Hello Fellow Researchers!
I am hoping to locate the marriage or maiden name of Edwin-Edward-Edmond
Guinn-Gwinn-Guynn (spelled many different ways)!!
I believe they married in Owen Co.
>From census records it looks like his wife's given name was Morning/Mourning
Ann . . . b. about 1814 in KY.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.

6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.
