Guide Review - Internet Genealogy Magazine
Internet Genealogy commissions articles from a wide variety of authors. Many of the best genealogical writers are represented, but it was also nice to see a lot of new faces as well. The layout is pleasing with plenty of graphics and headings to break up the text into manageable chunks.
It is a bit difficult to judge the quality of a magazine by a single issue, so I hope to update this review in the future after a few more issues have been published. At first glance, however, Internet Genealogy provides a fun, thorough and informative look at the world of online genealogy research. I write about Internet genealogy research for a living - and even I learned a new thing or two!
