Subject: [GAFLOYD] Important Genealogy Help Needed

Some of you may have already seen this, but I feel it is important enough
to make sure our mailing list memebers are aware of it.
If you live in the Atlanta area, or even if you do not, you probably have
heard of, and benefitted from, Ken Thomas' genealogy column in the Atlanta
Journal & Constitution. It has run for 26 years, and has been *the* means
by which genealogists in the Atlanta area get their genealogy news. At
events where participants are asked where they heard about the event, 90
percent consistently cite Ken Thomas' column.
The AJC is threatening to cancel the column, citing budget cuts, although
the stipend is quite small. The AJC editor has said that, if response is
great enough, they will not cut the column.
This column is very important to genealogists. *Please* write or call
editor Mike Lupo.

When you write, or call the AJC, please include the information that you
are subscribers. When I sent my message, I told them that the column was
one of the reasons I bought the Atlanta paper. Without that, there was no
need for me to purchase it.
If they think and understand economics, then they may understand losing
subscribers and those that purchase the paper.
