As it's a topic I write and speak on I turned immediately to an article by George Morgan, "Digitized Newspapers Online". I'd no need to worry he was stealing any of my thunder as the article covers strictly US papers whereas I speak on Canadian and British periodicals.
Lisa Louise Cooke has an easy to read article on using the iPad for genealogy with suggestions for useful apps and a quick list of iPad tricks.
Two articles by Lisa Alzo cover different ways of preserving and sharing audio, both new to me, savingmemoriesforever.com and voicequilt.com.
Aside from Dave Obee's regular back page column the specific Canadian content is by Christine Woodcock who writes on the Selkirk Settlers - a very much overlooked 200th anniversary this year.
Here's the table of contents.
