      Hello Everyone,

      This is Carrol Mick Volunteer County Host for Iroquois and Ford
      Counties in Illinois at Illinois Trails. I wanted to pass this on to
      you as this is very important issue regarding history and family
      history.
      Please read this information on the President's plan to eliminate the
      National Historical Publications & Records Commission.

      Thanks,
      Carrol Mick

      This archival heritage is at risk.
      The president's proposed budget for FY 2006 eliminates the
      National Historical Publications & Records Commission
      (NHPRC), the only grant-making body in the federal
      government with a focus on archives.
      The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA),
      NHPRC's parent agency, will also be challenged to meet
      demands in other important areas.

      What kinds of projects are at risk?
      What can you do to help save NHPRC?


      Submit public testimony from your institution or association to the
      House Subcommittee that will hold
      hearings on April 26. See Action Alert and Guidelines for Preparing
      Public Testimony.

      FAX letters to members of the House and Senate Appropriations
      Committees and express your
      concern about this threat to our nation's archival heritage. See
      Action Alert and Guidelines for Writing to
      Congress on this issue.

      Get details on how to write and whom to contact.
