It looks like this newsletter has a new competitor! I'm glad to see another genealogy newsletter available. I think there's room for several more.
My good friend, Leland Meitzler, is well known in the genealogy community as a frequent author, lecturer, and owner of Family Roots Publishing. In past years, Leland founded Heritage Quest in 1985. He was Managing Editor of Heritage Quest Magazine from 1985 through 2005, and later held the same position with Everton Publishers, editing The Genealogical Helper from 2006 until February of 2009. He is the now co-owner of Family Roots Publishing Company, LLC, and writes daily at GenealogyBlog.com. He has now launched the Genealogy Newsline.
Writing in his first edition, Leland states, "This is the first edition of the FREE Genealogy Newsline. It is an outgrowth of the Family Roots Publishing newsletter, and the Everton Newsline, which I once edited for Everton Publishers. The Genealogy Newsline has been in the planning for about six months, and with the start of the new year, I felt now was the time to launch."
The Genealogy Newsline is being launched as a text-only email message. As Leland notes, "Leaving the Genealogy Newsline as text allows me to produce a much longer newsletter, which will download a lot faster than one with a lot of graphics."
To subscribe, go the Family Roots Publishing Company website at http://www.familyrootspublishing.com/ and enter your email address in the box titled "Signup - Free Genealogy Newsletter" on the upper left hand corner of the site, just under the Family Roots Publishing logo.
Welcome aboard, Leland!
