My Blogs and Newsletter

To reduce confusion, we are posting a summary of my blogs and newsletters.

The blogs are published on the following websites. Any of these blogs can be received daily in your email for free by subscribing using the links on the individual blogs.

My two fee-based newsletters (because we have to pay the bills):

  • Michael’s Genealogy Blog Update–published weekly and delivered as an email–see a copy on our hosting service. This is a fee-based newsletter ($5 a year), and includes a summary of new blog postings along with some premium content. Take a look.
  • Casefile Clues–a how-to newsletter delivered as a PDF file. This newsletter focuses on research, methodology, and analysis. We are accurate and pedagogically correct, but we concentrate on articles that are easy to understand and follow without watering down content–grow your research skills from the comfort of your own hoe. Visit the webpage for more details including subscriptions.

Weekly Blog Update

Posts from all four of my blogs are sent daily to those who are subscribed. The daily updates are free and can be received by entering your email using the subscribe/unsubscribe links on the top of every page.

If you’d like to receive a weekly summary update instead, you can subscribe to the weekly update for a nominal fee of $5. The weekly update is sent out once a week and includes some additional content that is not included in our blog posts. We’ve added this service for those who don’t want the daily emails but would still like to receive our content.

You can see one of our recent weekly updates where there is a subscribe link as well. The nominal charge helps to cover our email distribution costs and keep our posts ad-free.

In the past we have occasionally sent out sample copies of the blog update free. We had to discontinue that after 1 August 2016.
