We're excited to continue to get the word out about this valuable program - which has already donated $6,000 dollars in 2011.

The Grant funds family history and historical preservation projects, awarding up to $1,000 dollars monthly to an individual or organization. This is a great opportunity for genealogical societies who may be beginning a project that needs extra funds to get off the ground. This grant can help you to: digitize historical material, preserve or restore artifacts, fund a community event, or raise awareness about a historically significant issue, etc.

Societies may also want to inform their members about the Grant to help them further their personal projects.

If you're a genealogical society member, make sure your colleagues know about this great opportunity. You can also read the stories of recent grant recipients on the blog.

Thanks Thomas MacEntee for being an excellent host. You can continue to listen to the show regularly at
