James M. Beidler writes in the Lebanon Daily News (PA), about a new genealogy magazine, Internet Genealogy, from Halvor Moorshead – publisher of the Family Chronicle magazine. The magazine bills itself as Tracing Your Ancestors Using Online Resources. The first issue – the April/May 2006 issue, will hit the newstands in North America at the end of February. There will be a preview in the January/February 2006 issue of Family Chronicle. The cover price will be $5.95.
Mr. Beidler wrote a quick review/preview ( excerpts from the article):
A preview copy of his new magazine, Internet Genealogy, arrived recently. The preview was a â€œteaserâ€ of 24 pages (the full issues will be at least 56 pages) but still had some useful articles â€” or, actually, parts of articles, since some of the articles are not complete in the preview…..
There was also an overly complimentary article on Linkpendium.com, a Web site that regular â€œRoots & Branchesâ€ readers will remember received a less-than-enthusiastic review from me…
It will be interesting to see if the new magazine affects the content of Family Chronicle, since many of the latter periodicalâ€™s articles have an Internet angle to them.
