Everton subscription & e-newsletter

From: Barbara Garrett

earMYRTLE,
I wrote you about three weeks ago concerning some CDs that were available through Heritage Quest before its untimely passing. I received your response
http://www.dearmyrtle.com/06/0623.htm within a couple of days, so I am going
to try another question.


Actually, I sat down and sent in my subscription to get the Everton's package, partly to compensate for the loss of Heritage Quest and partly because I had subscribed to Everton's Family History Magazine in 2003, and then believe I only received 2 issues before it faded away. I have heard nothing about the subscription although I thought I might get something at my email address, and then thought about my over-zealous program that tosses any address it doesn't recognize into my junk file. I don't check it very often, so I was wondering if I might have received a message regarding the online subscription and missed it.

Also, what in the world has happened to EVERTONS NEWSLINE with the genealogy information they provided and the wonderful articles by Frank Beacon and the answers to the queries that were so interesting. It has disappeared from my emails. Was I dropped or was it dropped? Barbara Garrett.

DearBARBARA,
EVERTON'S NEWSLINE (a weekly genealogy email) was produced in most recent years by the then editor of Everton's GENEALOGICAL HELPER, Holly Hansen of MyAncestorsFound.com.

The column by "Frank Beacon" was written by various ghost writers, and was a name developed for this purpose back in the days when Lee Everton owned Everton Publishing. It is my understanding that Everton's does not plan to do research for people nor answer research queries.

Fortunately, Holly Hansen and her crew continue to do research and answer queries through their web site, blog and monthly newsletter. They also provide guided research retreats at the Family History Library in Salt Lake. You may also be interested in their immensely popular regional family history fairs. See: http://www.myancestorsfound.com.

As for what to expect with the Everton's GENEALOGICAL HELPER, contact them directly through Everton.com. Their land line is 800-443-6325, and they are located at 570 Research Pkwy # 106, Logan, Utah. I notice Everton's website has been down today and yesterday.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
