"Casefile Clues for Beginners" newsletter for beginning genealogists

I received this in an email from Michael John Neill, who speaks at many conferences and seminars, writes several genea-blogs and also writes the weekly Casefile Clues newsletter detailing his family research.  Michael is starting a second newsletter for beginning genealogy researchers:


We are announcing a new how-to genealogy newsletter for the beginning genealogist starting June of 2011. Reader and survey feedback indicated an interest in a newsletter aimed toward the genealogist who needed some guidance in starting their search for their ancestors and who needed more than just a summary of what records contained. Casefile Clues for Beginners will help orient genealogists to the basic records genealogists use and how to make the best use of their research time and money.

Tentatively titled "Casefile Clues for Beginners" this new newsletter will be bi-weekly and feature beginning level material written by a variety of genealogists, not just me. We'll have a question and answer section, interpret the handwriting section, one or two articles every issue, and more. This new periodical will be written in a down-to-earth, practical  format. Casefile Clues for Beginners will concentrate on those who are starting or have just started their search for their ancestors.

There is more information about "Casefile Clues for Beginners" on our blog:

Questions can be sent to me at

We are very excited to start this new endeavor geared towards those who have just started the search for their ancestors.



This sounds like an excellent tutorial newsletter for beginners.  I encourage new researchers to subscribe to it. 

Disclosure:  I subscribe to Michael's "Casefile Clues" Newsletter and read it every week.  I received no remuneraton for writing this blog post.
