Everton’s Genealogical Helper Magazine went through bankruptcy some time ago. New owners came in and decided to salvage this genealogical treasure, including a rather large genealogy library acquired by Everton's over the years. You can read my earlier articles about all this here.
Holly Hansen of My Ancestors Found was hired to resurrect the magazine and library. She quickly organized a team to do so. Today, Holly is announcing the completion of the project:
It has been two years since Bobbie Coray called and asked me to help save the Everton Library and bring back Everton’s Genealogical Helper magazine. I, Jennifer H. Johnson and our team at My Ancestors Found dug in full force to help with this worthy cause. It has been hard work with seemingly never-ending hours but we are happy to have helped in making Bobbie’s dream come true. Currently, the awesome ‘Everton Collection’ is shelved and housed in the Logan City complex. Logan City is currently working out the details to hire a librarian to care for this unique collection. In the foreseeable future it will be available to the public once again. Everton’s Genealogical Helper has been revived.
I would like to thank each and every person who has supported us in this endeavor. The May/June 2006 Helper will be my last issue as Editor-in-chief. I will once again give my full attention to sponsoring research retreats at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, regional genealogy conferences & jamborees, and research assistance for those seeking professional help with their family history.
We have some really exciting things happening at My Ancestors Found and look forward to working with you again very soon. You can always see what the My Ancestors Found team is up to by visiting our website at www.myancestorsfound.com.
Thanks for your support,
