PRA NEEDS AN EDITOR FOR THE PEDIGREES

THE PRA NEEDS YOU!

This is the second call for help for an Editor for the Pedigrees. Colleen Blizard is resigning as the Editor of the Pennington Pedigrees after the publication of the Fall 2009 Pedigrees.

The PRA needs a willing volunteer to step forward and become the new Editor of the Pennington Pedigrees.

This is one of the most, if not the most, important jobs in the PRA. The Pedigrees has been published since our beginnings. It is the VOICE of the PRA and the thousands of researchers and PRA Members who wish to share their family history, stories and pictures.

Without an Editor, the Pedigrees will NOT be published. This would be a tremendous setback for the PRA and our Members. Without the Pedigrees, the PRA will lose our most important method to share information with other Pennington family researchers and "cousins" throughout the world.

The Board of Directors are presently discussing how the PRA can continue to operate given the lower membership numbers and therefore less money to continue operations as normal. One of the items we're examining is the publication of the Pedigrees. Should we continue to publish it? Should we reduce the number of publications per year from 2 to 1?

Without an Editor, we can't publish the Pedigrees! We need YOUR help!

Currently there is one Assistant Editor to help with some of the tasks in publishing the Pedigrees but the more Assistant Editors, the better. If a few of you are willing to become Assistant Editors, the job of Editor will be that much better.

If you think you might be interested in this wonderful opportunity, please contact Gene Pennington.
