Genealogists Support Declaration of Rights

RPAC is pleased to announce that the 10,000 signature threshold was exceeded on Thursday, 4 February 2016 at RootsTech being held this week in Salt Lake City, Utah. A big thank you to everyone who signed the Genealogists’ Declaration of Rights either on-line or in-person at a local genealogy meeting or national conference over the last twenty months.

The 10,000th signature was obtained at the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies’ booth at RootsTech. Jan Meisels Allen serves on RPAC for IAJGS and she has been working the booth and securing signatures for the Declaration this week. Thank you, Jan.
