Correction: People-Stephen King-Genealogical Research story

By The Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — In headlines for a story Feb. 26 about a grant from the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the grant came from Stephen King himself. A subsequent headline on the same story also improperly referred to novelist Tabitha King simply as Stephen King's wife.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Stephen and Tabitha King give $1.25M to genealogical society

Novelists Stephen and Tabitha King have donated $1.25 million to the nation's oldest and largest genealogical society

BOSTON (AP) — Stephen King and his wife, fellow novelist Tabitha King, have donated $1.25 million to the New England Historic Genealogical Society.

The Kings made the gift through their foundation.

The Boston-based organization is the nation's oldest and largest genealogical society. It says it will use the gift announced Tuesday to develop educational programming and fund a curriculum in family history for public school students.

It will also help the organization expand its headquarters.

Brenton Simons is president and CEO of the society. He says the money will have "far-reaching benefits."

The society says the Kings have deep personal interest in family and local history and their importance in education.
