We urgently need your Donations to stay online through 2015!
May - August are our most difficult Months.
With the arrival of Summer donations typically dwindle to very few. Unfortunately costs stay the same. Please take a moment to help so we can still be here in the fall and winter when you need us!!
We survive on your donations. Unfortunately only a small portion of our users donate. We’re a small self supporting community resource site with the expenses of a top website: servers, programs, equipment, research etc. We really feel Long Island Genealogy is something special. It is your family history library, updated and maintained by a small group of volunteers who have a passion for sharing Long Island's family history information. If our information has been helpful and you would like it to stay online to help others, please help by making a donation. Donations can be made either by mail or online by using this Link - Or through the Donate button on the left.
Thank you again for your continued support, and we look forward to continuing our research together in 2015!Your friends from Long Island Genealogy
