Brian -

Welcome to the Pelargonium Breeder discussion and thank you for your input!

I couldn't agree with you more on the need for a Pelargonium Breeder website.
 It's time to take advantage of, and join, "The Information Age". Not only is
there a need for a worldwide group to share current, up-to-date, information,
but there is a need to unlock the past. Up 'til now, reinventing the wheel is
all we've done. Geranium societies serve hobbyists in the US, UK, Australia,
RSA, etc. All of these groups publish journals, newsletters, yearbooks, etc.,
with an incredible wealth of information in their  back issues - none of
which is shared with other groups. What good are back issues if the
information is only stored for posterity. This information must be available
and affordable - that is why we are pushing to get all back issues of
Geraniums Around The World put on CDs. Equally valuable historical
information is stored in university libraries, and in people's attics.
Information stored, and not used, is information wasted! Sadder still, is the
loss of a person's life's work, upon their death. All of this information
needs to be shared with the world. Now is the time for the International
Geranium Society to step forward and become  INTERNATIONAL.

Ideas for a proposed Pelargonium Breeder Website have been forwarded to
Cynthia Lohry, IGS President, and will be presented to the IGS Board when it
meets in October.

Stay tuned.
