SOPA and PIPA Blackout -- TODAY -- Learn more ...

What ... no Wikipedia today, no blogs ... what’s going on!  Did you see the graphic on Google today?

Check out the information provided by Wikipedia regarding SOPA and PIPA and why there is an across-the-internet “blackout” in effect for today in protest of these two pieces of legislation!

Don’t think this affects genealogists?  Check out the “blackened” Internet Archive – a repository for so much information directly relevant to our genealogical research!
