Ancestry Magazine Discontinues Publication

The excellent Ancestry Magazine will discontinue publication. The post Ancestry Magazine Discontinues Publication on the Ancestry Magazine website/blog describes the situation and reasons for this decision.

For subscribers, the post says:

"The March/April 2010 issue will be the final issue of Ancestry magazine. Subscribers to Ancestry magazine with current magazine subscriptions that will not be completed by the mailing of the March/April 2010 magazine will receive prorated refunds."

This brings the "body count" of genealogy magazines in this digital age to three:

* Digital Genealogist (an online only magazine) ceased publication in 2009.

* Everton's Genealogical Helper went out of business in early 2009

* Ancestry Magazine

In addition, the FGS FORUM Magazine went from a print format to a digital format in 2009.

I'm so happy that Family tree Magazine is still going strong. Hooray for them!
