PRA Needs an Editor for the Pedigrees

THE PRA NEEDS YOU!

This is the 3rd call for help for an Editor for the Pedigrees. Colleen Blizard has resigned as the Editor of the Pennington Pedigrees now that the publication of the Fall 2009 Pedigrees is complete (it's at the printers now - deliver date is planned around mid December).

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, we can't sustain the publication as we know it today. We are planning to publish the Spring 2010 issue with the help of a few dedicated volunteers but without an Editor, the future of the Pedigrees is very, very cloudy.

Not having the Pedigrees published twice a year will 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.

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

A few dedicated volunteers, headed by Melinda G. Pennington and Shaunta Knibb, are going to work on publishing the Spring 2010 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 Melinda G. Pennington, President and Membership Chair.
