Ruth's Genealogy

“I don't know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.” -Abraham Lincoln

Genealogy publications are great for education and entertainment. Which one is your favorite? Who is the publisher? Why do you like this publication? How has it enhanced your own family history experience? Share any details you want potential readers to know about including features, articles, style, etc.

Most of the genealogical publications that I read are online, but one old favorite “paper & ink” journal is Family Tree Magazine. It is jam-packed with interesting and most useful information for beginning-to-intermediate level family historians. Getting-started and how-to articles fill its pages, all arranged in an eye-pleasing and very user-friendly format. When I first began my own research, I subscribed to this magazine and eagerly awaited its bi-monthly editions.

I think my only complaint concerning Family Tree Magazine would be that it is only published 7 times per year!


52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2012) that invite genealogists and others to discuss resources in the genealogy community including websites, applications, libraries, archives, genealogical societies and more. You do not have to be a blogger to participate. If you do not have a genealogy blog, write down your thoughts on your computer, or simply record them on paper and keep them with your files.
