Online Genealogy Newsletters

You may be interested in another online genealogy newsletter run by Dick Eastman at.
The Eastman Online Genealogy Newsletter is a DAILY newsletter, which they claim is an electronic newsletter for genealogy consumers, “packed with straight talk - hold the sugar coating - whether the vendors like it or not!” They say it is the most popular online genealogy magazine in the world, as measured by Alexa, the web information company.

Random Acts Of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK) founder Bridgett Schneider, R.I.P.

Back in October 2008 I told you about a great website called Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK). Unfortunately the primary person behind this website, Bridgett Schneider, passed away recently.
Bridgett and her husband Doc began Random Acts of Kindness (RAOGK) in 1999. What began with a handful of volunteer researchers in 1999 grew to over 4,000 people around the world
After 11 years RAOGK is going off-line and will cease to exist for a while.
Bridgett's husband Doc has assured the RAOGK volunteers that Random Acts Of Genealogical Kindness will be back online in the future - a promise he made to Bridgett.
For now, some people are helping individuals through the RAOGK Facebook page at
Bridgett has brightened the lives of countless people and will be dearly missed.
