Family Members Step Up For 2010 Research Trip

With one week left, the research team has received so many generous donations from family members that have supported this year's trip.  There were a number of ways funds were generated:

  • Family members purchased souvenir books of family history or reunion DVDs during the 2009 family reunion in Chicago, IL;
  • Family members who donated generously at the family banquet at the 2009 reunion;
  • Family members who sent money, by mail or online following the reunion
Because of the generosity shown, the research team's rental car and a portion of the gas required for travel have been paid for.  Additionally, supplies (such as paper, gloves, dust masks, pens, etc.) and t-shirts were also graciously donated by family members.
