The American Genealogist - October 2007 Issue Table of Contents

The October 2007 issue (Volume 82, number 4, published in August 2008, received in September 2008) of The American Genealogist (TAG) was full of interesting articles. Unfortunately, none of them were about my ancestors!

The Table of Contents includes:

As always, this scholarly journal has many interesting articles. Even if they don't directly cover my family, I often find research methodology information in them, and I usually marvel at the good fortune and/or dogged dedication of these researchers and authors.

The subscription price increase will be:

* One year (four issues): $40 US
* Two years (eight issues): $70 US
* Three years (twelve issues): $100 US.

Most back issues are now priced at $10 US each.
