Call To Action -

The Federation of Genealogical Societies posted the following information on its blog regarding the need for all genealogists to take action now to fight Congressional attempts to close access to the Social Security Death Index (SSDI):
The Records Preservation and Access Committee has created a Call to Action Kit to support the Stop ID Theft NOW initiative.
Access the kit at
If you have questions concerning the Social Security Death Index and its possible loss as a resource for the genealogical community, please check all the resources available in the kit including:
  • Educational videos and FAQ sheets.
  • Form letters that you can use to contact Congress and let them know you do not support removal of the Social Security Death Index.
  • And ways to spread the word to other members of the genealogical community.


  1. I'm delighted to see your blog! A genealogy-loving new cousin and I recently reconnected two branchs of our family after many, many years of separation. It was so sad to see the generations lose touch, and such a delight to begin the reconstruction process.
    I'm looking forward to learning a lot more about the county's history and perhaps to connect with existing family in the area. Thank you from Dayton, Ohio!

  2. Welcome to the GeneaBloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
