      It has been announced on the APG listserve which is open only to members
      that the Georgia State Archives are being threatened with closure due to
      statewide budget cuts. Over the past several years the Archives have had
      their days of being open to the public reduced from five to two days and
      dramatic staff reductions. Evidently in the current 2012 Georgia General
      Assembly session legislators are being required to cut 2% from the state
      budget and one of the cuts will be to the Georgia Department of Archives and
      History-forcing them to close 100% to the public. Their decision could be
      as soon as late January or February.

      The closings affect genealogists, historians, lawyers and others. The
      Friends of the Georgia State Archives have a website with further
      information http://www.fogah.org/id25.html
