There is a lot of information in these 56 pages. I learned a lot from George Morgan's article on the Hidden Web, and really enjoyed Lisa Alzo's Case Study article. The web site is You can subscribe or renew for $22.50 per year. Access to each issue comes in your email - you have to click a link, put in the username and password, and see a PDF format file. You can download the PDF file for future reference on your computer. You can print pages if you wish.

A more complete Table of contents can be found at (but today it shows the October/November issue - go figure!). The Current Issue list of web links is at (but it is for the August/September issue - someone is falling down here!).

I like this magazine - it's timely, has useful articles, and is very readable.

I love Internet Genealogy Magazine, too, and read it every month. In fact the articles in Internet Genealogy led me to many of the sources I included in my new book "Primary Sources Online". I've been teaching genealogy classes at the public library for years, and I'm always surprised at how many folks just don't know about all the FREE sources on web sites put up by governments, universities, societies, and museums. So I put all my favorites into a 125 page book. You can see a preview at
