In the May-June issue of the Everton's Genealogical Helper magazine, it was announced that Leland Meitzler was the new Managing Editor of the magazine. Leland was the owner of Heritage Quest magazine before it went out of business in early 2006. Leland replaces Holly Hansen at Everton's, who had brought that magazine back from dormancy. Leland's post on his blog announcing his new job is here.
The big news for Heritage Quest magazine subscribers who may have lost part of their subscription is:
In honor of Leland joining us, and following his wishes, we will honor subscriptions and committed ads for the issues of Heritage Quest that were not published. If you know anyone who might wish to take advantage of this offer, please have them call us at 800 443-6325 or 435 752-6022. Going forward, the Genealogical Helper will contain the best of both magazines and include an exciting, major new feature section on Genealogy, Technology, and the Web.
That is a real class act on the part of Everton's, and I know many subscribers will appreciate it.
Everton's Genealogical Helper magazine in its present form differs in content from its earlier years. A significant portion of the magazine is devoted to Questions and Answers on research problems submitted by readers, and some queries are answered by a genealogy professional. There are several articles and other features, plus lots of ads. I enjoy reading it, especially the research questions and answers.
