Ancestry magazine closing

Also from Dick Eastman is the news that Ancestry.com's Ancestry magazine is closing. The magazine was far too US oriented for my liking, but the US is a big market so I'm surprised it wasn't considered worth continuing. As a public company Ancestry.com is obviously looking closely at all its business lines.

This should help Toronto-based Moorshead magazines which targets the US market.

Well, I liked Ancestry Magazine and the digital version was a 'bonus' for Ancestry.com subscribers. I'm surprised they wouldn't keep that going.

However, I too root for Moorshead and its various magazines, like Family Chronicle and Internet Genealogy. Much better balance of geographic coverage and I've always appreciated the emphasis on 'case studies'.
