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
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.
