Publication Discontinued for Ancestry Magazine

Subscribers to Ancestry Magazine take note. 

The final issue of Ancestry Magazine will be the March/April 2010 issue. After 25 years of publication, the magazine will be discontinued.  With so much great family history content now accessible online, publication in print is seen to have a more limited distribution.

There will be prorated refunds for those whose subscriptions do not end with the March/April 2010 issue.  Refund details will be found in a letter accompanying the last issue.  Copies of past issues will still be available for purchase from their online store.

Ancestry Magazine had broad appeal.  Professionals as well as hobbyists have enjoyed this magazine for years.  This publication will be greatly missed.

Challenge #9 – 52 Weeks to Better Genealogy

I’m happy to announce that I have been selected to be the Phoenix Genealogy Examiner for Examiner.com I thought you might like to read the story about Challenge #9 that I will be releasing to Examiner.com

Speaking of Genealogy Blogs . . .

Exploring the world of Genealogy Blogs can be an eye-opening, educational experience. GeneaBloggers is THE place to go to get a secure foothold while exploring this new world. Listed as one of Family Tree Magazines 40 Best Genealogy blogs, you’ll find a treasure-trove of remarkable information there. There’s a blog roll listing over 900 genealogy and family history related blogs, blog resources, daily blog prompts, and posts from other genealogy bloggers.

Amy Coffin, GeneaBlogger, Blogger of Honor at the Family History Expo held in Mesa, AZ earlier this year, and blogger at We Tree has put together a fantastic series of weekly blog prompts titled the 52 Weeks to Better Genealogy. These prompts are posted every Saturday on the GeneaBlogger site. Here what GeneaBlogger has to say about them.

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy is a series of weekly blogging prompts that are a bit more challenging and are geared towards those new to the field of genealogy and family history as well as those who want to brush up on some skills which might be a bit rusty.

There seems to be something for everyone to glean from these power-packed tidbits. Join in this week’s challenge. It’s the perfect introduction to genealogy and family history blogs, and GeneaBloggers is the perfect place to find which types of blogs interest you.

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy – Challenge 9

Pick five genealogy blogs and read them every day. Meet new people, and networking within the online genealogy community is a great way to expand your own research and experience. Reading the blogs of others will help you get to know others. Try to find some blogs that are out of your area of expertise. Lists of genealogy blogs can be found at Geneabloggers.com and Genealogue’s Genealogy Blog Finder. If you already subscribe to many genealogy blogs, find five new ones that are “outside the box,” perhaps in history or archives. If you have a genealogy blog, write about the blogs you discover and introduce others to them.

This challenge runs from Saturday, 27 February 2010 through Friday, 5 March 2010.

Hats off to Amy Coffin for this outstanding series of prompts.

Happy blog-finding.
