The Debut of Digital Genealogist

From EOGN comes news that the inaugural issue of Digital Genealogist is online and free for the taking. Some formidable folks in the genealogy world have contributed columns: David Rencher, for example, gives a glimpse of coming changes at FamilySearch, and Geoff Rasmussen explains how to remove incriminating genealogical data from your hard drive.

This is editor Liz Kelley Kerstens's effort to "go it alone" after seven years at the helm of the now-defunct Genealogical Computing. Given its subject matter, it's appropriate that this new magazine on the use of technology in family history research would be available only online. If you prefer to read magazines the old-fashioned way, feel free to print out each issue on glossy paper and mail it to yourself.

Unfortunately, this URL is returning 'Service Unavailable' right now. I hope they are able to bring it back online later.

Probably the links from Eastman and Ancestry.com gave them too much traffic. Several thousand downloads of a hefty PDF file could easily bring a server to its knees.
