Goodbye to a friend: Ancestry Magazine

Ancestry Magazine has been a standard bearer in the genealogy magazine genre for 25 years. Innovations include being one of the first to use full color layouts, looking more like Smithsonian Magazine than a glorified newsletter.

News is sadly noted that the March issue of Ancestry Magazine will be the last.

In this author's humble opinion, a better move would have been to .pdf format. A variety of viewpoints is necessary in popular and scholarly genealogy periodicals. Though Ancestry Magazine tended to spotlight most frequently resources, the Ancestry voice will be sorely missed in print periodical media.

Subscribers will be reimbursed for balances due after the distribution of the March 2010 issue.

Happy family tree climbing!
