FGS RPAC announces SSDI Call to Action Kit

The Federation of Genealogical Societies Records Preservation and Access Committee has announced a new SSDI Call to Action Kit.  From the RPAC site: "Your help is needed to help Save the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) as an accessible resource for the genealogical community and others."  The "kit" consists a list of action items that individuals can take to help save this vital family history resource.  The steps are not hard to take, but will make a difference.  Take action!  And spread the word! http://www.fgs.org/rpac/2012/02/13/new-ssdi-call-to-action-kit/
