If you have heard of RSS and blogs but do not know how to start using this technology, a new opportunity is available for you. All Windows users reading this article right now are invited to download and install a free RSS newsreader that is customized for the readers of Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter.
I have been using FeedReader for several months. This Windows RSS newsreader works well, and it is simple to use and available free of charge. It reads articles on this newsletter as well as articles from the New York Times, BBC, Reuters, stock market reports, your local weather forecast, and any of the hundreds of thousands of personal blogs that are now available online.
Now, with permission of the creators of FeedReader, a special version is available for readers of this newsletter. This program will work well in Windows 95 or any newer version of Windows.
FeedReader - EOGN Edition will automatically capture all new articles of this newsletter and of "EOGN's Other News" automatically. You no longer need to wait for the weekly e-mail version, nor do you need to keep checking the web site. Simply leave FeedReader running anytime your computer is powered up and connected to the Internet. FeedReader will run in the background and will download all new articles within minutes after they become available. You can read the articles, either immediately or later at your leisure.
The two RSS feeds for this newsletter are already installed in the special FeedReader - EOGN Edition. Simply download the file, double-click on it to install it, and then sit back as the program starts up and retrieves all the current articles in this newsletter. What could be simpler?
Other RSS newsfeeds can be added at any time, should you wish to do so.
