I have the list of GOC members’ names. The names from the ACLA petitions will be added from the existing lists.
Still searching for a list of the Lambs of Christ. Once compiled those names will be added to the big list.
Once the entire list is compiled these will be the first set of records requested from Atlanta.
These are of interest as well
