Thanks Sponsors. You Made it Happen!

Genealogy Saves History: Ex-Slave Marriage Register 1865-1870

Thanks to our 76 Backers and the multitude of supports, cheerleaders, sharers (is that a word?) and those who helped in your own way.

Jake Cooper pledged the first $1.00 on 13 Feb. And there were steady contributions from the genealogy community, Kickstarter angels, a3Genealogy clients, twitter and facebook followers.

With less than a week to go, Kim Cotton offered and matched pledges, Thomas Macentee "fired up" the genealogy community, and Leslie Madden Masson swooped in with a project saving donation. 

The last 48 hours of this project was filled with energy. Many of you doubled your pledges, refusing to see the project fail. It was in reach and only 7 hours to go. That's when MacEntee not only doubled his pledge,  but added the last $5.00 dollars to close the $105.00 gap. 

It could not have all happened without each of you. Thanks for sharing with your family, followers, fans, and friends. And a special thanks to Brendan Leonard for the use of his Slave Marriage video. 

Project updates will be be posted periodically. Stay tuned!
