Our CD with PDF versions of all seven 2009 Family Tree Magazine issues is hot off the presses (so hot, actually, that it’s not yet in stock, but it’s available now for pre-order).
But I think the best thing about our annual CDs is the end of typing in URLs. You can just click to visit the recommended websites.
I’ll stroll down memory lane (since we’re already working on our May 2010 issue) and list my favorite articles from each 2009 issue:
- Power Hour: this January 2009 guide breaks down 14 genealogy tasks so you can accomplish them on your lunch hour
- Cheap Thrills: a special section in the March 2009 issue with money-saving research strategies
- Hair Apparent: I love the photos and information in this May 2009 article on hairstyles through history, and how they can help you date photos
- Special Help: our July 2009 guide to finding and using federal non-population censuses
- National Archives Web Guide: NARA’s website is one of my favorite sources for learning about US records
- Under Surveillance: this November 2009 article helps you avoid red tape when requesting US government records—I followed the instructions to obtain my ancestor’s alien registration record
- Guide to Genetic Genealogy: genetic genealogy articles in the December issue debunk DNA myths, highlight online DNA databases and help you discover family health history
Heritage guides in 2009 cover Danish, Mexican, German, Canadian, Jewish, American Indian and African-American ancestors.
The CD works on both PC and Macintosh systems with the free Adobe Reader (version 6.0 or higher). Learn more and pre-order at Family Tree Shop.
