Statue of Liberty Museum Founders – Early crowd-funding for the best possible reason 🗽

A new museum for Lady Liberty

Our national memory is endangered – “America is losing its memory. The National Archives and Records Administration is in a budget crisis. More than a resource for historians or museum of founding documents, NARA stands at the heart of American democracy.”

    Megan – Thank you for including the weblink to the newspaper article noting the passing of Donn Devine in your Genealogy Roundup. He truly was a tireless Renaissance Man during his long life. In the past, I reached out to him for advice researching early Dutch ancestors whom resided in the Sleepy Hollow\Tarrytown, NY area and in New York City. Donn shared his knowledge and past experience while researching his DeRevere ancestors and gave me great feedback regarding my research. He was very generous with his time, advice, and encouragement. He will be greatly missed.
