GenWeekly welcomes two new writers . . .

We would like to welcome two new writers to our GenWeekly staff: Cindy Drage and Rita Marshall. We look forward to their contributions. Appearing this week, in our last issue for the month of June, Cindy Drage, in her first GenWeekly article, "Don't Overlook Historical Societies,"examines the valuable support historical society volunteers can provide, especially in locating those unique sources that may not be available online, or anywhere else for that matter. 

Rita Marshall's first article exploring DNA research will appear next week, in our first article for the month of July. Again, to our new writers, Welcome Aboard.

Benefits of Lineage/Heritage Societies

In her article, "Benefits of Lineage Societies," Melissa Slate observes, "Some people have the mistaken notion that these are little more than clubs for people who wish to claim bragging rights to famous ancestors; however, lineage societies provide many beneficial services." Lineage or heritage societies as they are sometimes called, represents one of those underutilized but potentially valuable resources. And if you don't know where to look for a lineage society or aren't sure what's available, the article directs to a useful listing of societies. You might be surprised at what you find.
