History/family book deadline extended

-A A +A

The Fayette County Genealogical and Historical Society has received good news from the publisher of “Fayette County, Illinois History and Families Book” – the deadline for submissions and orders has been extended to Sept. 30.
The deadline was extended after society members learned that some brochures were not delivered properly, and some county residents did not receive them until well into July.
The first submissions are being edited and the words counted, and other submissions are coming in. The society reports for those preparing submissions that the computer used for the submissions does not count words the same way as the book publisher; one-, two- and three-letter words are not counted, and dates – such as December 25, 2000 – are counted as one word.
