Dear AfriGeneas Member,

It's that time of year again when we ask each of you to support AfrIGeneas.

AfriGeneas has been in existence for more than 10 years. It is the premiere online destination for anyone conducting African American or African Ancestored genealogical research. The website consists of twenty-seven forums, eight regular chats, the AfriGeneas Mail List and over 100 additional discussion, geographic and surname mailing lists, a surnames database containing over 50,000 records, a death records database containing over 16,000 obituaries and funeral programs, a slave records collection of over 3000 records, census schedules, a documents and articles library, rss news feeds and much more. The AfriGeneas Family Reunion Primer is the top-ranked African American family reunion planning site.

Part of what makes AfriGeneas so successful is that it is more than a compilation of records, it is a community of researchers. Whether they're genealogy newbies or old hands, what binds them all together, is a willingness to share and to help others achieve their goals of reuniting with the ancestors. Our motto is: "Each one, teach one."

AfriGeneas is run by a small staff and a dedicated group of volunteers and we are entirely supported by our wonderful corporate and institutional sponsors--Vervehosting and Mississippi State University--and by advertising and contributions.

This year advertising income has fallen sharply reflecting the ailing economy. Contributions have fallen off as well. While you've been enjoying all that AfriGeneas has to offer, you've probably forgotten that it costs money to keep this great resource up and running. We know there are more pressing matters so we're sending this gentle reminder that we need you! Please contribute what you can afford as soon as you read this while it's still fresh in your mind. We've made it extremely easy for you to help.

There are two easy ways to contribute:

1. You can contribute by mail by choosing one of the sponsorship levels below and sending your check or money order made payable to "AfriGeneas" to: AfriGeneas, c/o Valencia King Nelson, 1496 Soaring Pointe NE, Marietta, GA 30062.
