The Family Tree - August/September 2004
Postage Heroes


Well, the time has come to say “good bye” to our printed edition...
It’s The ELECTRIC Family Tree from now on!  We’re remaining in existance, just on the Internet!
Our last print edition was the June/July issue.  What did us in was high gas prices.  It only took 400 people NOT sending us $20 each...and that made us $8000 short.  Without the money, we simply had no choice except to cease the print edition.
We are still working on paying for that June/July issue!  We still need your help.  We’ll list all of our Electric Family Tree Heroes here each time...and hope we have some to list!  I know what happened.  Gas prices went up.  That took the contributions that those 400 people would have sent in to The Family Tree...it’s as simple as that.
Please know how much I appreciate your help over the last 14 1/2 years.  We would not have lasted 3 issues without you.
