> 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,
> 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.
> 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.
