It is with sadness that I read George Morgan’s recent announcement that he is ending his weekly genealogy column after nearly fourteen years of excellent articles. George wrote, “It is with very heartfelt regrets that I have to announce that the 'Along Those Lines ...' column will end with this installment. If I could afford to continue writing the column pro bono, I would. However, the reality is that I need to write articles for magazines, journals, and online venues for some kind of remuneration, and I need to be able to write books for the very small profits that genealogy books make.”
George has done a great job over the years and I must say that I have enjoyed his columns.
As somewhat of a competitor, I also can appreciate the economic realities that he briefly describes in his last article. Indeed, as he wrote, “I know that many of you will and can identify with that -- increased gasoline prices, home insurance increases, property tax and utility increases, medical insurance and health costs.”
George, I certainly can appreciate those realities.
I’d like to wish George Morgan the very best in his future projects, wherever they take him. His weekly articles will be missed by many.
