      3) a feature story about one paper - "Voice of the Fugitive"
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      In celebration of black history month, Paper of Record announces the
      addition of Canada’s first African-Canadian newspaper.

      The Voice of the Fugitive is now available on the Paper of Record
      website of historic newspapers. The Voice of the Fugitive is commonly
      acknowledged as the first African-Canadian newspaper published in
      Canada. Within Paper of Record, The Voice of the Fugitive is fully
      searchable by either date or word, with full-page images displayed just
      as they were published.

      The Voice of the Fugitive was published in the community of Sandwich,
      which is now Windsor, Ontario near Detroit, Michigan. The Voice’s
      publisher, Henry Bibb was a runaway slave who moved to Canada after the
      Fugitive Slave Act was passed by Congress. The abolitionist newspaper
      promoted Canada as a destination for runaway slaves and as a vehicle to
      find other family members. The paper was published bi-weekly for 3
      years, 1851-1853 at a subscription rate of one dollar per year.

      The contents of the paper include poetry, news from around the world and
      stories of slaves and fugitive slaves from throughout North America. A
      fascinating view of the lives of the African-American population in
      North America during the abolishment of slavery, the paper includes many
      first-hand accounts of life as a slave. The addition of The Voice of
      the Fugitive to the Paper of Record collection represents a significant
      step in making important cultural content accessible to millions of
      Canadians, African-Americans and persons worldwide.

      “The Voice of the Fugitive is illustrative of the rich and diverse
      record of the past we are striving to include in our Paper of Record
      product. This pre-civil war, and pre-abolitionist paper is a
      fascinating view of slavery from the bounds of the newly forming Canada”
      stated Bob Huggins, President and CEO of Cold North Wind.

              MyFamily.com, Inc. Acquires Genealogy.com, Expands Product Line, and Enters
              Long-Term Promotional Agreement with A&E Television Networks

              PROVO, Utah, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- MyFamily.com, Inc., a leading online
              subscription business and the leading network for connecting families, and
              A&E Television Networks (AETN) announced today that MyFamily has acquired
              Genealogy.com, producer of the award-winning family tree software, Family
              Tree Makera, and provider of extensive online genealogy resources. In
              addition, MyFamily will receive promotion on AETN television properties.

              Genealogy.com joins the MyFamily network of websites -- Ancestry.com,
              MyFamily.com, and RootsWeb.com -- giving customers a full complement of
              Internet services focused on connecting families with their histories and
              one another. Combined, the network of websites receives over 10 million
              unique visitors each month and has more than one million paid subscriptions.

              "We're excited to bring these two strong companies together to better serve
              consumers and the genealogy community," said Tom Stockham, President & CEO
              of MyFamily.com. "It's a great strategic fit and underscores an
              opportunity to serve the growing market for family history products. By
              providing customers with a broad set of tools to discover the information
              that makes their family history come to life, we help customers answer the
              questions, 'Who am I?', 'Where do I come from?' and 'How am I connected?'"

              "AETN is excited to see these two important family history companies come
              together, increasing the positive experience of consumers embarking on
              family research," said Nick Davatzes, President & CEO, A&E Television
              Networks. "We believe this agreement makes good sense for the businesses
              and for the consumer. AETN looks forward to a long-term strategic
              partnership with MyFamily."

              services, including Family Tree Makera, and its dynamic roster of online
              subscription products. MyFamily will continue to improve upon the products
              and services Genealogy.com currently offers, enhancing the family history
              research experience. In addition, Genealogy.com will continue to host
              GenForum message boards, a widely used free genealogy community resource,
              with more than six million messages posted.

              MyFamily serves the fast-growing market of people with an interest in
              family history. As reported in a recent study, family history is one of
              the fastest-growing hobbies in the U.S., with over 60% of Americans
              interested in researching their family history. The addition of
              Genealogy.com's strong product line to MyFamily's network of websites,
              family tree software, databases on CD-ROM, message boards, books, and
              magazines, is a natural expansion, providing researchers valuable tools to
              quickly and easily explore their family history, saving them time and money.
