The Georgia Archives are slated to be closed to the public as of November 1, 2012. Georgia will then be the only state in the United States of America to not have the State archives open to the public.
The citizens of Georgia will no longer have access to these primary, historical resources unless action is taken now.

We had heard that the Atlanta Journal Constitution was running an article in today's paper - but it didn't run. Maybe, it will be in the Sunday paper?
The Secretary of State has issued a prepared statement that “... The employees that will be let go through this process are assets to the state of Georgia and will be missed.” Yuk! The story we hear is that the Governor cut the Secretary of State's budget by 3% and the Sec. of State put the ENTIRE cut on the Georgia Archives.
ONE MORE TIME that Georgia ranks last in the Nation.
