  • Quick and Easy Gems

    Thursday, Nov 03, 2011

    The weather is turning cooler, fall sports are ending and you are probably raking the last of the leaves out of your yard. You might be able to squeak in a last visit to a cemetery if you hurry. But largely it is time to settle in for what can be a genealogist’s best season – the Armchair Research season!

    Blow the dust off your files and see where you left off last spring when the garden called you outside. One of the activities you may include in your winter research pursuits is catching up on your genealogical reading. If you have not done so previously, now would be a great time to read the back issues of The Genealogy Center’s e-zine, Genealogy Gems. From The Genealogy Center’s homepage, hold your cursor over the words “Genealogy Community” in the dark blue bar at the top of the screen, and click on “Ezine.” The page that opens has all back issues of Genealogy Gems from its advent in 2004 through April of this year.

    Take the opportunity to sign up to receive Genealogy Gems via email, if you are not already a subscriber. It is sent out each month and is packed with news of The Genealogy Center, preservation tips and articles on featured print and microtext items in the collection. It’s straightforward, no-frills and a wealth of resources right at your fingertips each month.
