Queries at Everton's Genealogical Helper

I read Leland Meitzler's post on the Everton Publishers Genealogy Blog about Do Queries Still Work? CNN Reports That They Do and at the end of the post he notes that in Everton's Genealogical Helper magazine --

"Queries are still FREE - and may be placed at the website. All queries placed at the website are published online, as well as in the magazine."

I haven't done that before, so I submitted my information about Thomas J. Newton (before 1800 - after 1834) who married Sophia (Buck) Brigham in about 1833 (or at least had two children by here...).

Unfortunately, since I am not yet a "member" of Everton's, I couldn't put information into the entry boxes for "What Records have you searched and what have you found?" and "Additional helpful information..." I did subscribe to the Everton's Genealogical Helper online edition at the SCGS Jamboree, but I haven't received a member number yet (I actually have a member number from ten years ago...but it doesn't give me access to the two input boxes).

This magazine is the only popular genealogy magazine that stills accepts queries, which are then every-name indexed by the magazine, and the indexes appear on as part of the agreement between Everton's and WVR.

Have you submitted queries to Everton's Genealogical Helper recently? Have you looked for other researchers who may have submitted a query about your elusive ancestors in the Everton collection on
