Have you heard about the new digi-mag called The In-Depth Genealogist? If not, you should definitely check it out. There is a blog, newsletter, chat forum with every topic a genealogist could think of discussing, and coming soon – Resource Pages!
This new magazine was started last month by two colleagues, Stephanie Pitcher Fishman, Terri O’Connell, and myself. Our plan for The In-Depth Genealogist includes creating a huge resource section for parents, teachers, homeschool parents, kids, genealogy societies, and libraries. With this goal in mind, by the end of summer, this blog, Genealogy for Kids will disappear and the resources will be moved to The In-Depth Genealogist.
You will still be able to visit my business site, Generations and the Generations Blog for updates on new teacher and youth genealogy books. There will be a teacher book out by the fall and some short individual lessons available as PDFs and Ebooks. Information will be posted as the release dates approach.
Please check out The In-Depth Genealogist today! Let us know what you think.
Have you signed up for the Generations newsletter? If not, you should! There are giveaways, news about the new Branching Out kids’ books, news from other genealogists and information for kids and teachers, just to name a few of the included items.
Sign up today! Monday, March 19, I’m giving away a copy of Finding Your Chicago Ancestors by Grace DuMelle.
And, you will be among the first to receive the press release with links to purchase my new kids’ books!
I just returned from the FGS2011 Conference in Springfield, IL. What is FGS? The Federation of Genealogical Societies. I was an Official Blogger at the conference.
You can read my blog posts from FGS and beyond on my Generations website. There I talk about the books I purchased, one of which was a Kids Genealogy book. As soon as I read through it I’ll post a review here. It looks fantastic so I need to find time this week to dive in!
You can also follow me on Twitter as @jencoffeelover. I posted many updates and you can find those by searching Twitter for the #FGS2011 tag.
Stay tuned for more Genealogy for Kids!
