The many friends of Leland Meitzler will be delighted to learn that he has landed on his feet, back in the genealogy publishing business. Leland has been named Managing Editor of Everton's Genealogical Helper.
Leland has been a highly visible figure in the genealogy business for years, most recently as owner of Heritage Creations, publisher of HeritageQuest Magazine. The company suffered business problems and folded a few weeks ago. Details are available at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2006/02/heritage_creati.html.
Now Walter Fuller, President and Publisher of Everton Publishing, has announced that Leland is joining the company as the Managing Editor at one of Leland's former competitors.
The announcement is available at http://announcements.eogn.com/2006/04/evertons_geneal.html.
It's great to see Leland back in the genealogy business. I think this is a good deal for both Leland and for Everton Publishing. That's a win-win.
