Love this magazine! It has helped me so much through the years. It was quite a surprise to see a picture of my old church—St. Procop of Cleveland—in the “Endangered Sources” article in the August 2010 issue. The photo on page 24 is quite old; the church closed in 2009. Thank you for the picture of the church the way I remember it.
Regarding Sunny McClellan Morton’s “Fantastic Journey” in the August 2010 Family Tree Magazine, I agree with the fourth section, “Write away.” Some of my best information has come from writing a letter and a check if need be, then waiting. When the information does come, it’s like Christmas morning!
I enjoy every page of this fine publication. “Family Archivist” is a valuable source of information, but I feel the need to point out several shortcomings in the piece on encapsulation (August 2010). With more than 25 years of public history and archival experience, I’ve learned the hard way that encapsulation is not always appropriate for documents.
Many thanks for the article “Saving Yourself” in the August 2010 issue. I’m making family history books for my sons, packed with everything I can find on my ancestors. But I hadn’t paid much attention to myself. Now I’m trying to collect my old school photos and even writing down what I used to like or dislike, what I did for fun, and things I wish I knew about my own ancestors.
Roll the Credits
What a thrill and honor to see my genealogy videos at Beginning Genealogist mentioned in Family Tree Magazine’s August 2010 issue. Thank you!
I am a new genealogist and recently happened upon your magazine and website. With just a few clicks on some of your links, I was able to get past a couple of roadblocks and trace one line of my family back to 1613 Scotland. Thank you! I will definitely be subscribing to your magazine.
