      > My friend Virginia Gargis lost everything in the flood and she was not
      > covered by flood insurance. It dawned on me that those of us who know how
      > to do research can offer our assistance in gathering vital documents for
      > flood victims. We can help them with birth and death certificates,
      marriage
      > certificates, deeds, copies of wills, etc. For those who have records out
      > of state, we have the addresses that they can write to for these copies.
      As
      > genealogists we can use our abilities in this way. We can help them write
      > the letters to various governmental offices.

      > You can also help specific victims of the flood by making donations
      > straight to them. Frankly, I have heard some unpleasant stories about the
      > Red Cross and I think the only agency I would send money to is the
      > Salvation Army.

      > Please use your skills now to help these victims.
