My name is <your name>. I am a researcher and volunteer
to the USGenWeb Archives, an internet based repository of genealogical
information. This non-profit organization maintains this
internet site through volunteers. All information in the
Archives is received through donation and is available for free access
to researchers. I hope you will visit the site at http://www.usgwarchives.net/
The Obituary Project is one of many projects within the USGenWeb
Archives, and I'm writing you to ask permission to store copies of
obituaries from your publication within this project. We would
be happy to include a link to your website from this project, which
may help bring more visitors to your site <omit if no
website>. We'd also be happy to wait a period of time before
posting the obituaries, if requested. Each file includes a
notice regarding use of information contained with it for copyright
Please contact me at <your contact information> with any questions in association with this project.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to your response.
