It’s 10:00 PM – Do You Know Where Your Genealogy Data Is?

I’ve updated the Articles section of High-Definition Genealogy and as you can see I’ve been churning out quite a few pieces of writing lately! I also have some writing deadlines coming up including articles for national genealogical society newsletters, a nationally-known genealogy magazine as well as a chapter in a new edition of a popular genealogy book!

My latest article entitled “It’s 10 PM – Do You Know Where Your Genealogy Data Is?” has been posted at Archives.com.  I really enjoy writing these “how to” articles with practical advice and links to sites and resources – most, if not all are free.

[Disclaimer: this was an assignment for Archives.com in which I was paid to produce a 1800 word article on the subject of digital preservation.  In February 2010, I wrote a similar article for Archives.com with similar payment terms.  In addition to payment, I also received a complimentary membership to Archives.com.]

Family Tree Magazine 2010 Media Kit

Family Tree Magazine

For an eye-opening look at the genealogy and family history industry, check out the 2010 Media Kit for Family Tree Magazine (warning – the download is a 4MB pdf!)

While the kit is meant to help sell advertising at Family Tree Magazine, I find it is good for analyzing recent information on the genealogy industry, the target market, etc.  In addition, you can see the proposed topics for upcoming 2010 editions.
