There is something for everybody in this issue of the NGS NewsMagazine. I really appreciated the column on joining a genealogical society - lots of good ideas here! The Eakle, Elliott and King articles provide discussion of research techniques and resources. The Stuart-Warren and Shurtleff articles are historical, and interesting.
