The following is an announcement from Liz Kelley Kerstens:
Ancestry has discontinued its magazine Genealogical Computing, effective with the July/August/September 2006 issue that is currently in the mail. As editor of GC for the past nearly seven years, I still believe there's a need for a magazine devoted to genealogy and technology. To that end, I am starting my own magazine later this year. It will be called Digital Genealogist and will be delivered to subscribers as a PDF. It will be similar in format and content to Genealogical Computing. In fact, a lot of the authors and columnists will continue to write for me in the new publication, including Drew Smith, popular Cybrarian columnist. The first issue of Digital Genealogist will be sent out via PDF attachment to subscribers in November 2006.
The annual subscription rate is $20. You can subscribe at http://www.digitalgenealogist.com. Payments are being taken through PayPal by clicking on the PayPal button on the Digital Genealogist website. Subscriptions will begin with the first issue. Those who don't want to use PayPal can send checks or money orders for $20 to Digital Genealogist, LLC, P.O. Box 6386, Plymouth, MI 48170-8486.
One of the advantages to subscribers of a PDF is that the URLs in both articles and ads will be live links, allowing you to immediately explore ideas suggested by authors and websites of advertisers.
