This is a VERY IMPORTANT update to the previous message.
Committees for publication were formed during the last meeting of interested attendees. I will be serving on the Family Article Committee. You may mail your article directly to me, Charlotte Mason, 140 Millport Drive, Rossville, GA 30741.
PLEASE NOTE: There is a change in the TIME LINE for this publication. ALL articles and copies of pictures should be sent to me before January 31, 2004. Publication of the book will be in the fall of 2004.
Remember, if your ancestor(s) came to Chattooga Co. in 1860 or before, your Pioneer article may be 1000 words(double-spaced) with a copy of 2 pictures. (No pictures will be returned.) When you have a pioneer ancestor, you may use these 1000 word in one story or two....and the pictures can be used in either. Other family history stories about those families entering the county after 1860 may be 500 words (double-spaced) in length with a copy of 1 picture. There is no charge for submitting these articles and pictures. Extra words cost 10 cents each, additional pictures, $12.50.
Along with the family articles,people with interesting stories about places, events, businesses, schools, churches, special personalities, etc. are invited to submit those as well.
Pages 'In Memorium' may be purchased as well as business advertisements. I invite your questions regarding these.
The prepublication price of the book is $49.50 plus $3.50 GA tax and $7.00 s/h charges. Total Price: $60.00. Contact me if you have questions or would like to purchase this book prior to publication. Supplies may be limited afterward.
If you are interested or have unanswered questions, please do not hesitate to call or email me. I can also give you details about how you can submit more than one article, free of charge.
Thanks for passing on this information to your fellow researchers.Charlotte Vaughn Mason
