Internet Genealogy - March 2010 Table of Contents

One of my magazine subscriptions is Internet Genealogy, published by Moorshead Magazine, Ltd, based in Toronto. This is a digital magazine distributed with an email link and password to an online web site. The February/March 2010 issue of Internet Genealogy magazine includes the following articles:

I always find useful information in this magazine about genealogy websites, software and databases. There are always new websites listed in this magazine that I have not looked at, and I learn a great deal about genealogy topics that I'm not intimately familiar with. In this issue, the sailing vessels, the French-Canadian websites, and the England/Wales criminal registers were of special interest. I also enjoyed Michael Hait's article on Twitter - learned some new things there! I note that there is an article about Canadian genealogy blogs too!

Disclosure: I am not a writer for, or on the staff of, Moorshead Magazine Ltd. publications, and was not paid to write this post. I'm just a satisfied subscriber.
