In case you missed UpFront last month, the National Genealogical Society announced the launch of UpFront in blog format. “Blog” is short for “web log,” an Internet communications tool that has been growing rapidly in recent years. This format will extend all the conveniences of a blog to UpFront readers. You can find it online at http://upfront.ngsgenealogy.org/
Here are some of the major advantages of a blog:
If you want to learn more about the NGS Blog, you can read last month’s UpFront, which can be found at http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/index/NGS/2009-09. Each article is also on the blog at upfront.ngsgenealogy.org/.
October 2009 is the last issue of UpFront in this e-newsletter format. As part of our transition to blog format, please note that everyone will now view events and reunions exclusively in the "Conferences & Events" section of the NGS website at www.ngsgenealogy.org/cs/conferences_and_events. Please remember to send your event items to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your NGS membership number in your e-mail submission.
NGS appreciates your continued readership and looks forward to welcoming you to this new era of online communication. In addition, the UpFront blog will remain free to everyone. You can find it online at http://upfront.ngsgenealogy.org/.
You can also continue to send any comments or submit articles to UpFront Editor Pam Cerutti at UpFront@NGSgenealogy.org. ◦
