How additions to GenealogyBank are reported


Click to find out more about GenealogyBank.com



DearREADERS,
On the 23rd of February, Ol' Myrt here had an interesting email conversation with Thomas Jay Kemp, our friend at GenealogyBank.com. He had forwarded the summary of "NEW CONTENT ADDED - FEB 2007" listed below.

Ol' Myrt thanked Tom politely, and said I'd be happy to report the new content if he would let me know at the actual END of the month. (Made sense at the time.)

Then Tom explained the cycle of reporting, and how things work at GenealogyBank. He said no new content is added on the last day of a month, and that his report was compiled on or near the last Friday of each month. Any new content added between the time he created this February report and the end of the month, would appear on his report for March 2007.

OK, makes sense to me. It takes time to compile reports. AND if you really want to know what's new, just visit: GenealogyBank.com and look for the NEW CONTENT ADDED DAILY list, with a link to "much more". WONDERFUL!!!
