I have written several articles in recent months about Everton's and the magazine known as Everton's Genealogical Helper. The company was sold a couple of years ago, the magazine was changed in format by the new owners, financial difficulties ensued, the company folded, the assets were sold to new owners, the company's extensive library was donated to the city of Logan, Utah, and the new owners announced they would resurrect the magazine in its original format. Whew!
The plan is working. Readers of this newsletter are now reporting that their old subscriptions are being honored and the newly re-invented Everton's Genealogical Helper Magazine is now appearing in mailboxes around the country.
Here is an e-mail received a few days ago from the new Everton's:
Subject: EVERTON NEWSLINE IS BACK ON TRACK
and better than ever!
At Everton Publishers, we are excited to be in touch with you!
EVERTON NEWSLINE is your information source for the latest quick tips, genealogical events, up-to-date resources for researching family histories, and Frank Beacon's inspiring words.
Bobbie Coray and Walter Fuller, our new leaders, are pleased to announce that the November/December issue of Everton's Genealogical Helper is in the mail.
