Tuesday's Tip: Stay Abreast of the Latest Genealogy News

Have you ever wondered how other genealogists stay on top of all the latest genealogy news out there? Would you like to know when a subscription website has a discount offer or is allowing free access to some or all of their databases for a weekend?

I always recommend to the new students in my genealogy classes that they sign up to receive updates from the major genealogical companies. This can be done by signing up to receive their blog posts via email or in a feed reader such as Feedly or The Old Reader. I point out that many of these companies offer specials around holiday weekends, so that's a good time to try out their sites or products. In addition, these blogs and newsletters are a great way to keep abreast of all the latest genealogical "headlines" available. 

Here are links to these companies' newsletters/blogs:

Family Roots Publishing Newsline (sign up link in upper left margin) - http://www.familyrootspublishing.com/
