AGS Starts Blog for Sharing Inquires & Personal Experiences about the April 27th tornadoes

The Alabama Genealogical Society (AGS) has started a blog for sharing inquiries and personal experiences about the April 27th tornadoes.

In a letter to the members:

As most of you know Alabama was raked by numerous deadly tornados yesterday leaving an historic amount of damage, displacement and loss of communications and power to many in our state. Some of your friends and families may have been affected. Several of us at AGS have had inquiries about our members, or information that some wish us to get out to others.

In an effort to do that we have set up a blog for sharing inquiries and personal experiences with each other. The blog is temporary and will remain up only as long as there is a use for it. And, since we are new at blogging, it may undergo changes as we assess it’s operation.
