With postage costs rising, concern for the environment and pervasive use of the web for genealogy, the trend is to switch distribution of genealogical and family history society quarterly or triannual (three-times-a-year) publications to electronic means. The table below shows the situation for some major anglophone societies across Canada. The information is gleaned from the society websites which in some cases is ambiguous. Corrections welcome. Digital includes both email distribution of a pdf and availability through a website. Some "digital" societies make allowance for legacy members who do not have web access.
