The following announcement was written by Elizabeth Kelley Kerstens:
Plymouth, Michigan, 30 December 2011--After 14 years of producing the genealogical utility software Clooz, Elizabeth Kelley Kerstens, CG, of Ancestor Detective, LLC, has transferred ownership of the software to Joe Bissett of Somerset, Texas. Bissett has plans to re-release Clooz at some point in the future, with updates to templates, reports and other customer requests. He is also looking at recent technological Internet options. Kerstens will provide input to the update as needed. During the transition, the Clooz software program will no longer be sold, but the Clooz 2 Manual and Clooz 2 Tutorial will still be available from the Ancestor Detective Store at http://www.ancestordetective.com/zstore/ for 50 percent off, as long as supplies last, using the coupon code fe3b0f63dc. Joe will make an announcement about the software as soon as he has evaluated the impact of various requested updates. As of 1 January 2012, Bissett will provide customer support for Clooz users. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org during the transition.
Joe is an accomplished member of the genealogy community who currently administers three different Rootsweb Surname lists: Piggott, Cumminsky, and Kerslake. In 2009 he was the first Bissett male to submit a Y-DNA test to Family Tree DNA, and now runs the highly successful Bissett DNA project for FTDNA.
Kerstens, the executive director of the Plymouth (Michigan) Historical Museum, remains the managing editor of the National Genealogical Society Magazine and a speaker at the upcoming NGS Family History Conference in Cincinnati, 9-12 May 2012.
