The Montgomery Genealogical Society, Inc. (MSG) with the Alabama
Historical Commission will hold a workshop 9 November 2002 at the Alabama
State Archives and History. It will be a Call to Action. We will explore
ways to protect and restore our rich cemetery heritage. Also, information
will be available on a Plan for Action.
Together, we can make a difference by strengthening Alabama Laws, Adopting
a Cemetery, advocating state cemetery days in the Spring and Fall and by
educating the public. All genealogical, historical and preservations
groups, government officials along with anyone interested in preserving our
past for the future are invited to attend. Take this opportunity to give
voice to your concerns for positive steps that must be taken now!
Please join hands with us to save Alabama's historic cemeteries!
Programs will be printed by next week. More information will be on MGS
website along with a Registration Form
