future in the Florida State Archives in Tallahassee?? If so, you better
hurry & finish.

Subject: [FLGADSDE] Florida State Library & archives in danger
X-Mailing-List: <FLGADSDE-L(a)rootsweb.com> archive/latest/846
Gov. Jeb Bush wants to close the Florida State Library by July 1. This
outrageous move could make its archives and collections inaccessible. Please
go to the following site to get the whole story:
This is not a done deal but we don't have much time. There are e-mail
addresses for the governor and others at this site. We desperately need
everyone's help in stopping this. If he succeeds, it could set a dangerous
precedent for other states. Because he apparently has precedential
aspirations we, believe he will be sensitive to mail from other states.
Please help. Please write a letter (or letters) today. The research source
you save may be your own.
