Due to the Coronavirus-19, we thought it best to cancel our 2020 Cline Reunion. However, all is not lost as we will continue to publish our 2020 edition of the Family of Clines. We will notify you when published - by December 2020 and let you know the cost (basically printing cost + mailing). We'll make copies in two formats: (1) paper bound copy, and (2) a digital copy on a flash drive. We'll mail your copies as soon as we get your check.
This book will include information about:
- All documents in the 2018 edition (sharpened where possible)
- The Cline connection to the newly discovered Ítzi Iceman discovered in 1991 in the Italian Alps
- A chapter on Cline Females (a presentation at the 2018 Cline Reunion)
- Information on the original Ohio Valley Clines
- Addition data learned since the 2018 edition
- and more...

To the Cline Family members:
To better communicate Cline family information, we have known for years that we needed to upgrade our Cline website. We've come to the conclusion that the time has come to "bite the bullet," spend the necessary money, and get it done, hence the purpose of this email. Our current webmaster has the skills to redesign our website. On top of this, we now have enough Internet server space to greatly enhance our site - to include thousands of photographs, plus documents as well as books that people can download and print. Interested?
The cost of redesigning our website will be $4,000. This includes a complete upgrade to the format (see insert), the various links we want to include, plus a format that will work on (1) large computer monitors, (2) tablets, and (3) mobile phones (three different designs must be created to accommodate the different screen sizes and orientations). Photos can automatically change, links can be made for "family groups" living anywhere in the world. We can also include information about all of our "modern" Cline Reunions - from 1921 to the upcoming 2020 reunion. We also want this website to include all Cline families (and Cline reunions) - not just those in North Carolina.
Rarely, if ever, will we have such a golden opportunity to preserve our Cline Heritage. PARI (Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute) has generously and deeply reduced the cost of this upgrade. We can ensure easy access to priceless records, anecdotes, and photos of our Cline Family.
We are asking for you & your Cline family to help with this expense. If 100 of us would
donate $40, we'd have what we need to proceed, or the reverse, if 40 of us would donate
$100 each, we could proceed. Please consider donating to help with this project? If so,
send a check (any amount will help) made out to Sebastian Cline Reunion and mail it to
our treasurer. To make this donation easier, we've attached a form you can print out &
return with your contribution.
