ANNOUNCESMENTS

Due to the tremendous amount of spam, I have temporarily
removed the GUEST BOOK. Update! - The GUEST BOOK is back
up with restrictions. (see TABLE OF CONTENTS > Scroll to
bottom > MISCELLANEOUS > GUEST BOOK)
http://www.tampicohistoricalsociety.citymax.com/Old_Guest_Book.html

It is now necessary to "log in" to the MESSAGE BOARD to
make a post. I am sorry for any inconvenience, but the spam
is getting totally out of control. If you have any
problems, you can Email me with your post and I will post
it for you. However, I encourage you to use the "log in"
process if at all possible.

New website launched! IL Trails has launched the new
GENEALOGY TRAILS which will now be a NATIONAL resource
