After long thought, and for a variety of reasons, I've found myself reluctantly having to resign as a Co-County Coordinator for Chickasaw County - http://iagenweb.org/chickasaw/. This has been a fantastic ride for me. We took over a web site which had been abandoned and destroyed in February 2003 and with the help of dozens of people (my last count was over 70) we have a web site full of great genealogical and historical data and it is still growing as well as dozens of links to goldmines of other data. None of it could have been done without all the support, and contributions of data and time, by our volunteers and contributors; and to them I want to give a hardy thank you and well done. The web site is being assumed by the most capable hands and fine mind of Bernie Glienke. Bernie has been a Co-Coordinator at Chickasaw as well as Coordinator of Howard County. He still has family all over the area, has many contacts, and is enthused about helping those who are researching. Thanks again everyone and I promise you I'll still be on the message boards swapping data, helping where I can, and loving genealogy!
