RPAC at FGS–Session for State Liaisons & Concerned Genealogists

The Federation of Genealogical Societies annual conference meeting in Springfield includes a Records Preservation and Access meeting beginning at 3:30pm CDT on Wednesday the 7th of September to which all interested in these issues are invited.


The topic is “How does the genealogical community organize to address threats to the records we need? Critical roles and resources for state liaisons.  Recent successes and setbacks.”


During this session we will review an updated model presentation developed by RPAC suitable for use by state liaisons in presentations before local groups, as well as a “toolkit” for confronting legislative threats to our access.  A newly developed toolkit addressing the process by which implementing regulations are developed will be shared. We will also survey recent successes and setbacks.


This meeting is open to all those interested in records preservation and access.  State liaisons are particularly urged to attend.  We also plan for remote participation.


We are still actively seeking State Liaisons for a number of states and would welcome any recommendations you may have. We will then contact them and see if they are willing to serve.
