There will be a rally at the state capitol in Atlanta in support of the Georgia Archives on 14 January 2013, which coincides with the first day of the this year’s session of the Georgia General Assembly. The rally will be held on the Washington Street entrance to the capitol from 1 – 3 p.m. Only hand held signs are allowed. Georgia Genealogical Society is the rally’s sponsor.
Whether you can attend or not, please take the time to contact your local representative to the state legislature in support of the Archives. As Vivian Price wrote recently at Georgia Archives Matters, public pressure can make a big difference and can help keep this important repository of the state’s history and historical documents open.
