- Thursday May 26th 2016 -
Here is your opportunity to make even more things happen for LLCGS. We have projects planned for the coming months to support our mission to:
Preserve, Educate and Promote Genealogy
Last year LLCGS received over $1500 from our members and supporters. With those contributions we have been able to purchase a dedicated computer and large flat-bed scanner. Volunteers have been digitizing records from our library.  They are scanning and indexing original early 1900 Lancaster County Probate Records which will be made available via the LLCGS website to members and the public!
Our 2016 project involves scanning thousands of marriage records so these digital records can be preserved and obtained by researchers. Recall how much we appreciate obtaining records others have preserved!  We will again be working with Union College students trained to do careful scanning and recording. The cost could approach $5,000.00 so give generously. You may think of amounts of $40.00 and multiples of that amount to celebrate the 40th anniversary of LLCGS!
If you choose to do a paper contribution, you may write your check anytime and bring it to an LLCGS event or meeting. Or contact Judi Cook at 402-416-9139 and make plans to get your donation picked up. It does not have to be post dated for May 26. Make the check payable to Lincoln Community Foundation and write LLCGS in the memo line. You may also give more than once!
So mark your calendar!
Join others and help LLCGS preserve even more records this coming year!!
