Memorial planned for former archivist
Editor:
Susan Bzdell, Morgan County Archivist, passed away on Dec. 17, 2005. Susan was the first Archivist of Morgan County, and did a splendid job of organizing and preserving Morgan County records. She worked long and hard to make these records available to the public and especially to us genealogists. Deeds, marriage records, probate court, circuit court, and many other types of records are housed at the Archives, dating back to the formation of the state of Alabama, and this county (1819). For those of you that have been fortunate enough to visit the Archives, you are aware that Morgan County's Archives ranks among the best in the state.
In order to show our appreciation and gratitude, the Morgan County Genealogical Society is proposing that our society help complete the Veteran's Wall that Susan began and which was dedicated on Nov. 10, 2005.
The Veteran's Wall (plaques that are already mounted on the outside south wall) needs to have a weather-proof frame surrounding the boards on which the plaques are mounted. We also should have plaques made for the World War II veterans through today and have them mounted as well.
This project will be quite expensive; therefore, we are asking that anyone who can donate whatever amount you can spare to honor and memorialize Susan. Also, if you wish to memorialize a past or present person who has served in the U.S. Armed Forces (any branch, any time), a donation of $10 per plaque is requested. Contact the Archives at 351-4726 for more information.
Make checks payable to MCGS and on the "for" line, put Susan Bzdell Memorial. Mail to MCGS, 624 Bank St, NE, Decatur, AL, 35601.
We appreciate any money you can donate, and any help that you can give in other ways.
Edna Earle James
President, Morgan County Genealogical Society
