It would seem that there is something to get up in arms about again in the genealogy community.......... an alert from the California State Genealogical Society (CSGA), part watchdog for all of the family researchers, has directed us to the Legal Genealogist Blog who is a true legal watchdog for all of us in the genealogy community.
For those who attended the Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society Holiday Party this week, we were given this very website to read with urgency.
Please read Judy Russell's blog The Legal Genealogist (read December 13 post- scroll down when you get to the main page)
"The current budget agreement includes a closure of the SSDI for three years after a person's death. While not as bad as it could be, this poses problems for forensic genealogists, heir searchers, etc. Judy has a good blog entry on this and directs you to other sites with information so you can contact your representative." says Peggy Rossi, CSGA Legislative Watch Chair
