Looking for a great gift for a genealogy buddy? Here's an idea that will enrich their lives all year and build their expertise with online resources, tips and tools for enhancing their research, and lots of encouragement for breaking through those brick walls. How about a subscription to Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter – Plus Edition?
I've convinced Dick to set aside his usual modesty by letting me write this article. I have edited almost every article since Dick Eastman created EOGN, so I think I'm in a good position to speak up here. It's been a wonderful learning experience. Both Standard Edition and Plus Edition subscribers know the quality and quantity of articles Dick puts out every week. While both versions have lots to offer, the Plus Edition contains the most in-depth articles, and it even arrives in your e-mail inbox each week for your convenience.
EOGN is full of information that makes your quest easier and more efficient, be it a new website or gadget, a free or cheap program that does much the same as a costly one, a “best practices” tip for expanding and preserving your family history files, or so many other topics that I could spend hours listing them all.
Enough said! If there's a genealogist friend you want to help – or someone who has helped you – a subscription to the Plus Edition of Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter might be a perfect gift. At only $19.95 for a year, it's a true bargain – cheaper than a small cup of coffee per week, and much more lasting! And if you've been whetting your appetite with the Standard Edition, why not upgrade? Better yet, share this article with someone who may be stuck for a gift for you!
While I have the “floor,” I'd like to thank everyone for your readership, and especially Dick's Plus Edition subscribers for your support that makes this possible. As editor of EOGN, it is so rewarding to contribute to a newsletter that brings so much to so many!
