Citizens can make an impact on our laws and regulations at several points in the legislative process: By working to submit bills that meet our needs and interests.

Today Dick Roberts, president of NERGC, announced a call for nominations for the Donna Holt Siemiatkoski Award.

Everyone, please take a few moments to think about those in our community who dedicate themselves to volunteering their time to the field of genealogy and submit your...
