From: Reader's Digest Oxford Complete Wordfinder
Combination Dictionary and Thesaurus. 1996

FREELOADER /n. sl. a person who eats, drinks, or lives at
others' expense; a sponger. * see PARASITE.

****FROM THE ROBERTSON COUNTY WEB SITE****

A high priority is to place all available U.S. Census
records online.? To this end, the Robertson County
Historical Commission's Census Project seeks financial
contributions from public-spirited county residents
and friends.? All money collected will go directly
toward placing additional materials online.

One volunteer purchased the 1850, 1860, 1870, & 1880
census records; the Robertson County Historical
Commission purchased the 1890 Veterans & 1900 census
records.? Three more census years ,-1910, 1920, & 1930
need to be purchased and placed online.? Having these
census years online will greatly assist local residents,
genealogists, educators, historians, researchers, reporters,
students, and others with an interest in Robertson County's
rich cultural heritage. ***AND YOU***

Census Project Funding Goal...................$840
Total Census Project Contributions.............$5 TOTAL 6+ MOS.
Immediate Fund Raising Need:.................$835

*************************************************
***FROM ME.***

TODAY I FOUND OUT THAT THERE HAS NOT BEEN A
CONTRIBUTION IN MORE THAN 6 MONTHS, AND THAT
WAS A TEST OF THE ON LINE CONTRIBUTIONS
SOFTWARE TO MAKE SURE IT WAS WORKING.

Tonight I mailed a Check for $ 35.OO
so IMMEDIATE NEED IS NOW $ 800.00.

AS OF 11:30 PM, APRIL 15, 2002
ROBERTSON CO. SITE COUNTER SHOWS..............35,018 Visits
Persons Contributing last 6 + months...............00,003

FREELOADERS ( YOU DO THE MATH).................... ??,???
