Internet Genealogy Magazine

This is just in from Victoria at Family Chronicle /History Magazine. I spoke about this new INTERNET GENEALOGY MAGAZINE on a recent DearMYRTLE's FAMILY HISTORY HOUR. I think if this magazine is anything like the publisher's other two magazines, it is sure to be a hit. Halvor has a knack for combing the available resources, encouraging gifted writers and presenting information in an fresh, easy-to-read (and learn) format. BRAVO! -- Myrt :)

The publishers of Family Chronicle are pleased to announce the launch of a new magazine, Internet Genealogy. As the title implies, the magazine will deal primarily with conducting genealogy research using the resources of the Internet.

Halvor Moorshead, publisher of Family Chronicle, says, "Although genealogy is more popular than ever before, newcomers to the field are overwhelmingly conducting their research using the Internet. Most of them limit their searches to Google because they don't know what else to do. Sometimes they find a family tree that includes their known ancestors and takes them back generations. There is nothing wrong with this but it is only scratching the surface. Many traditional genealogists have been disdainful about the 'net. They tell you the information cannot be verified, that it is full of errors and that, in any case, only a fraction of the records are available. I admit that I held this view for some years but the rate at which new databases are coming online is staggering and many of these new records are linked to the original images, making them effectively original sources."

A 24-page preview copy of Internet Genealogy is featured in Family Chronicle's Jan/Feb 2006 issue with several sample articles. This preview copy can also be downloaded from Internet Genealogy's website,

Internet Genealogy's first full length issue will be available on newsstands and to subscribers in late February, with a cover date of May 2006.

Internet Genealogy will be published six times a year with a subscription price of $28 (US) however, for a limited time, Internet Genealogy is available at an introductory subscription rate of $20 US.
