PHGS Project for 2017

March, 2017 - 2017 will be a year of rejuvenation for PHGS. I have embarked on a year-long project to beef up our group of volunteers and officers to make sure that PHGS continues into the future. Today I sent an email to our membership outlining the project. The response has been tremendous!
A question asked by several people is, "Must I live in the geographic area to help?" The answer is NO. The existing officers and volunteers are scattered all over the US. Through the wonder of the web, we all work together to take care of our website and any member is most welcome to help us.
It will take a week or so sort through all the responses, and then we can begin our adventure!
Also, as always, if you are a paid-up member but did not receive the email, please send us an email so we can update your address in our records.

Change in 'Handy Links'

January, 2017 - An alert member reported a broken link in  'Handy Links'. The link to Cleaning Headstones broke because the parent group, Connecticutt Gravestone Network, changed their website around. I have reestablished the link as CT Gravestone Network and linked to their home page. There is a lot of interesting information on their site. Check out their Instructive Articles.

Followup on Veteran's Lists

January, 2017 - We are getting emails! As I had hoped, we are receiving emails from readers with service men and women to add to our lists. This is great because our new lists are just beginnings. If you do not see a name that should be on one of the pages, please email us. Include county, name, as much service info as you know, death date and burial place. Even if all you know is that the person served, we have a place for the entry.
