Internet Genealogy: Aug/Sept 2010 Issue

I was surprised to open up the latest issue of Internet Genealogy and see my photograph. It's a group shot, taken with Ed Zapletal, the magazine's editor, and Dave Obee, prominent BC genealogists taken at the Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree in June on Hawaiian shirt day.

At the top of the same page is mention of vintagekin.com, a website providing free family history graphics for personal use. The site has genealogical charts for you to fill out in a variety of styles and designs, clip art, and even some WordPress genealogical themes.

On the previous page, the inside front cover, is an announcement of a new publication "Tracing Your Irish Roots" from Moorshead magazines. It's a compilation of some of the best articles on Irish genealogy previously published by the company in Family Chronicle, Internet Genealogy, and Discovering Family History. All the articles have been reviewed to ensure they're current and the websites referenced actually work. It should be on the newsstands by the beginning of September, just in time for the BIFHSGO annual conference and its Irish theme this year.

There's something for everyone found in turning over the second and subsequent pages, including a short article right at the back on errors in ships passenger lists by Dave Obee. Read the complete list of contents at: www.internet-genealogy.com/issue_contents.htm
