As the state coordinator of the IAGenWeb project, after taking a membership vote and receiving support from the majority, I hereby notify the project that the IAGenWeb project will co-sponsor the following amendment and to cause it to be placed on the upcoming national ballot.

Under the Amendment procedures listed in the Bylaws, MNGenWeb Project is proposing a Bylaw Amendment to revise Bylaw XII. State Projects Paragraph B as follows:

"B. The state website shall include direct links to the county pages,
The USGenWeb Project national website, The USGenWeb Project Archives
(Digital Library) at both their own state and the national levels, The
USGenWeb Project's Guidelines/Standards for county websites (which
includes a link to the Official Project Name/Logo page), [and] The
USGenWeb Project Copyright Information page(,) and the WorldGenWeb
Project.

By removing the required link to the WorldGenWeb Project.

Inserting the word ‘and’ in front of The USGenWeb Project Copyright
Information page and adjusting the punctuation accordingly."

Respectfully submitted,
Conni McDaniel Hall
IAGenWeb State Coordinator
