Tip of the Iceberg Poster – Buy Three Get One Free!

It was in March of this year that I first reported on the "Tip of the Iceberg" idea that developed during a casual conversation between CGS member volunteers Lisa Gorrell and Tim Cox. Lisa asked her daughter Elizabeth to create a graphic image and the project snowballed after Dick Eastman mentioned it in his online newsletter.

Tim followed up and had a poster created which was unveiled at the Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree in June.

Now Tim has sent word that the "Tip of the Iceberg" posters are available by mail order.

The charge for a single 11 x 17 poster is $13.00, including tax and postage. The poster is mailed in a protective cardboard tube.

Up to four posters can be mailed in one tube so the society is offering these price breaks:

Two posters – $23.00, including tax and postage.

Three posters – $33.00, including tax and postage plus one free poster!

Send request, including payment to:
The California Genealogical Society and Library
2201 Broadway, Suite LL2
Oakland, CA 94612-3031

Thanks for helping us spread this vital message.

Greetings,
I sent a check to CGS for 3 posters on September 1, 2009. The check has not been cashed and I've not received the posters. Did you receive my order??
Thank you for your help.

Hi Pat,
Thanks for letting us know. We had a great response and we got a little behind in processing the orders. Tim Cox is posting them today. Thanks for your patience!

I am very happy to announce that we SOLD OUT our first batch of posters and have received out second batch! These posters have been very popular and are really hitting home the point about doing the physical research for things that are not online and for the things that have not been transcribed yet.
Beginning genealogists need to know that there are things still waiting to be digitized.
