Subject: Geraniums Around The World Searchable CD Project
Dear European and Australian Pelargonium Societies:
The San Diego Geranium Society (SDGS) in conjunction with the International
Geranium Society (IGS) has undertaken a project to professionally digitalize
51 years (1953-2003) of the IGS quarterly journal, Geraniums Around The
World, in an industry standard text searchable format and create a set of
five CDs that will make the information easily accessible and widely
available, with the view as actual pages, thus preserving history. A
searchable index for all issues will be on each CD enabling a thorough,
convenient retrieval of information.
Geraniums Around The World was first published in 1953 and the 1953-2003
issues cumulatively contain comprehensive and invaluable information on the
Geraniaceae family, from specific cultivars and species of the five genera,
Pelargonium, Geranium, Erodium, Monsonia and Sarcocaulon, to pest and
disease issues, specific hybridizers and growers and their records, cultural
information from seed to mature plants of numerous types in differing
environmental situations, with photos, scientific data and book reviews.
This information is of great interest to plant enthusiasts of all levels
from hobbyists to professionals, as well as hybridizers and historians.
When completed, the set will be available for purchase at $30 US per CD, or
$125 US for the 5 CD set, plus shipping. Payment can be made via credit card
through a secure PayPal transaction. Go to the San Diego Geranium Society
website for details and to access PayPal for this project. We anticipate the
completion of the project in early 2005.
A LIMITED TIME OFFER for pre-purchase of the set is being extended to your
society and its affiliated societies for $100 US, plus airmail shipping.
For the UK, Denmark, Sweden, and The Netherlands this is an additional $12
US. For Italy, this is an additional $15.50 US. For Australia, this is an
additional $13 US.
The San Diego Geranium Society is accepting contributions for this project
and/or pre-purchase through PayPal on its website:
Please reference this offer and provide your complete address for shipping.
This would make a great addition to your library, and would be of interest
to many members individually.
We are asking that you publish an announcement regarding the project in your
newsletter or journal, and hoping that your society and affiliated societies
will contribute to the project by MAKING A DONATION, taking advantage of
this LIMITED TIME OFFER, or BOTH.
If you have any questions, please contact: Sandy Connerley, IGS
or Cynthia Lohry, IGS and SDGS,
