463. Historic Preservation Grants For Genealogy?

I've often wondered how genealogists might get some preservation money for cemeteries and family-related structure improvements or rebuilds. If you are in a fix like that, perhaps you could finesse a little money out of the state. Let me know how that works--or not works!
