Sharon Tabor, sent me this and I wish to share to help us all.
The Census Bureau is taking public comment on whether to remove Marriage Status,
information from the census information. Only 10 % of the nation was provided a long form,
and if future information does not show family status, it will make research very difficult.

Support Change for SSDI Laws by Susi P
Denise McLoughlin brought this to my attention also.
Barbara Mathews wrote a great article on the Board for
Certification of Genealogists, Spring Board News and Notes.
it discusses how we lost access to current death indexes Dec 2013 by the stroke of a pen.
It also urges us as genealogists to start the ball rolling state by state, to change this.
You can read more about this on RPAC’s own blog, “Genealogists Declaration of Rights—We Need Your Support!”
In need of at least 6,000 more signatures.
Outreach Program Bonita-Sunnyside Library
Dec 6, 1- 4 pm
Wild Apricot Presentation by Gary Brock and Sam Seat, others.
Our new website holder and data presenter for our group.
Also we will be discussing our Goals for next year, and share
holiday cheer with attendees. Please bring one goal to work,
for next year and tell us what one thing you accomplished this year.
January 10, 1- 4 pm Bonita- Sunnyside Library
All events except special events will be held from 1 to 4 pm for this year.
It gives those who go to the SDGS Meeting a chance to attend this one or
present for this one and the library space to do more in their morning schedule.
Our meetings will normally be on the first Saturday of the month.
I wish to say how "Thankful" our society is for the gracious extension of times to our
group from the Bonita - Sunnyside Library Staff. We are happy to see them pop their
selves in and hear what we are talking about also and posting the schedule in their bulletin.
The topic for January will be a State, probably Mississippi. The schedule will rotate between
state topics and User Group Topics for Reunion, FTM, RootsMagic, Beginners and other
things needed by the attendees. It will also depend on the availability of the presenter.
Sharing the Holidays with Friends, December 17, 6 to 8 pm
