Our first newsletter issue was sent out on July 8, 2004 with the goal of "helping individuals of all ages and genealogical experiences sort through, and then organize, the mountain of information available to those who try to find their family history."
The initial newsletter format was plain text, which shifted to rich text in 2005, and then to .PDF in 2006. As 2007 rapidly approaches, the GenWeekly team has reviewed the project mission listed above along with current Internet trends to determine what next steps should be taken.
While there will be some content changes to the newsletter, the team felt that genweekly.com should be updated to better highlight the unique contributions of our writing staff, along with the events and news stories that they discover as part of staying abreast of our industry.
Beginning this week, you'll begin to see these new posts to genweekly.com as we migrate the site into a blog format. You'll still need a subscription to access the original content (and receive the newsletter edition), so if you haven't already, please consider subscribing to GenWeekly
