Subject: [GA-Roots] PURCELL Family of Franklin, Stephens and Habersham counties GA
Date: Fri, 20 Apr 2001 12:16:28 -0400
I am sending this message as a public service for those interested. Let it be a "HEAD's UP" for those interested.
There is an association called "PURCELL Family of America" they publish a quarterly magazine or Journal. This year during the July and October issues our Franklin Co PURCELLs will be featured. I know this because I am the guilty party who submitted the information to them to publish. They now have a copy of Claude PURCELL's manuscript all the information in my GEDCOM file on PURCELLs and information submitted by others. I have just reviewed the portion concerning our Senator Sanford Parker PURCELL born Carnesville 1902 served in the Legislature 1959-60 etc. so I know those folks will be in the issues mentioned above. I have been a member for about 4 years now and enjoy the Journal and keeping up with family queries etc.
Anyone researching PURCELL family in North GA should obtain these issues. You can join the PFA association for $20.00 per year and that pays for the journal. We have already had two issues this year but if you join now you will be assured of the July and October 2001 issues which are the best ones for us to acquire. I don't know the story about previous issues but I can say for sure that in the last 4 years there has been ZERO about our Georgia PURCELLs. So this will be the first articles about us and ours. The majority of info has previously been on the Ohio PURCELLs and VA PURCELLs. Now we are getting the attention we deserve in July and October. So act soon so you will get the July issue which will tell how we arrived in Ga in the 1700's and became what we are today.
The Editor of the Journal is Robert H. Purcell, he is also the Treasurer [or was at last time I sent my check to them] so send your check to him at the address below if you are interested.
Robert H. Purcell

Hope this gives you the info you need but if not feel free to ask me questions.
