Now is the time for Michiganians to come to the
aid of our state's history and learning.
The Michigan Genealogical Council is planning a
public assembly in Lansing to show our legislators and fellow
citizens that we care about our state's past.
On Wednesday the 5th of August, let's assemble
at the State Capitol, on the lawn. The Council has
reserved the North and South lawns, and the steps.
a.m. The State Senate goes into session at 10 a.m., the only
time in the next few weeks we can be certain our legislators
will be assembled at Lansing.
At 10:30 a.m., we will process/march over to the
Michigan Historical Center and form our Hands Around the
Library -- in hopes of good media coverage! Since the
perimeter of the building is around 1800 feet, it is obvious we
can use as many genealogists or friends of libraries/history of
all types as possible.
Please let the Western Michigan Genealogical
Society know you are coming for sure, since you can see that we
need coverage - flags, ribbons & our WMGS Banner can be held
between people as well as hands and arms.
from the Grand Rapids metro area...
Thanks for your support of Michigan's past … and
Don Bryant, President
Western Michigan Genealogical Society
