EVERTON NEWSLINE (2 November 2008)

Everton NewsLine October 27, 2008 - Restarted Nov 2, 2008

THE NOV-DEC ONLINE EDITION OF THE GENEALOGICAL HELPER IS NOW POSTED AT EVERTON.COM - FEATURING GERMAN and DUTCH RESEARCH ONLINE

The Online Edition of the Helper is now posted! This issue is without a doubt one of the most useful magazines we have ever produced. If you have German or Netherlands research, the issue is especially important, in that the Net Family History section of the magazine features online research in those areas. We've got more links to more websites where actual documents can be obtained than any other publication! To subscribe and/or view the issue, go to http://www.everton.com. Costs are just $29 for a full year's subscription (with paper and ONLINE EDITION access), or $12 for a year of ONLINE EDITION access only. Subscribers now have access to three issues at the website: Jul/Aug; Sep/Oct; and Nov/Dec 2008!

DIRECTORY OF GENEALOGICAL AND HISTORICAL SOCIETIES AND LIBRARIES

Reminder - We are currently compiling the latest directory of Genealogical and Historical Societies and Libraries, to be published in the Jan-Feb and Mar-Apr issues of Evertons Genealogical Helper. We had earlier planned to run the directory in the Sep-Oct and Nov-Dec issues, but came to the realization that there were just too many changes to get it printed in those issues. Please send us any changes made in your society or genealogy physical library address, as well as mailing, phone, website, or email addresses. We attempt to locate change information ourselves, but your help insures that we don't miss your society address changes. The directory will be even more valuable now that we have an ONLINE EDITION, with website and email addresses directly hotlinked. Send additions and corrections to me at: Leland@everton.com

EVERTONS ROOTS CELLAR

CRADLED IN SWEDEN
This book by Carl Erik-Johansson has been considered the Bible of Swedish genealogical research for English-speaking genealogists for over 30 years. If you are doing Swedish research, you must have this book. It was reprinted in hard cover in 2002. Cost is just $32, plus $5 p&h. Order from Everton Publishers, PO Box 368, Logan, Utah 84323-0368 - or call Miste at 1-800-443-6325.

THE HANDYBOOK FOR GENEALOGISTS - ELEVENTH EDITION

The Eleventh edition of the Handybook is the place to look if you want to find out what is available at the courthouse where you need to do research. Just look up the county of interest, and find information on available vital records, land records, court records and so forth. If you would like a copy of the new Eleventh edition, just call the office at 1-800-443-6325 or order online at: http://www.everton.com/shopper/productview.php?SKU=8021&Category=Books and Miste will ship one right out.

ON THE HORIZON

We are very proud of our Calendar, printed in every edition of The Genealogical Helper. It is the best, thanks to your help. If your society has an event coming up - conference, seminar, workshop, cruise or research tour, send the vital information to me at Leland@everton.com. Place the words ON THE HORIZON in the subject line, please. Since magazines, including the Helper, work on deadlines that are months in advance, please note that I am now asking societies to get their ON THE HORIZON information to me by the following dates. If you do not have all the details in place, send the basic information anyway. We can update the item in the following issues. Note that the deadline for the Jan-Feb issue has passed. However, as I am still working on this issue, I can again extend that deadline until November 15 - and that really is it! So get your announcements in today!
