Hi everyone, a little collection of bits and pieces again.
Please note to anyone in the IPSWICH Qld area, that I have been sending my
syndicated column to your QLD TIMES newspaper now for over a year. They have
not run it for a few weeks due to lack of space and if they can find room
they will run it. If you have enjoyed my columns and want to keep up with
the latest genealogy news, plus tips please email the editor and ask that it
be re-instated. newspapers are only interested in selling papers. They need
to know that columns etc are being read. If any of you live in other areas
where my column is being run please tell your editor if you are enjoying it.
It never ceases to amaze me the narrow mindedness of newspapers and
magazines re genealogy. They give us a glut of astrology, cooking, gardening
and feng shui and lets face it people whats the most important!!
I have an article in this months Burke's Backyard Magazine with a glossy
pull out pedigree chart. I having been trying to get a column in one of the
magazines. BB at least were interested in a story, perhaps if enough
interest was shown to them they may also decide to have a column. If you
genuinely enjoyed the article and agree with me on the need of a national
column asan outlet for hints, tipos, whats going on, etc then perhaps you
can nicely thank them and suggest it.
here is the email to the QLD TIMES qt@...
