Issuu has some neat genealogical magazines including the "new" In-Depth Genealogist one


It still amazes me how much really neat “stuff” I just stumble across!  Imagine if I was looking with some real purpose.

Recently, I learned that the In-Depth Genealogist has published the first edition of a new magazine, Going In-Depth, on Issuu.

Kind of like potato chips, it’s hard to start after just having one.  So, I searched on the terms genealogy and ancestry on the website to see what else might be available via Issuu and found the following additional publications:
  • Irish Lives
  • Inside History (NZ and Australia)
  • Dutch (the magazine – regular column digging for roots)

And, obviously there are a "ton" of other publications in varying formats!

See a publication that interests you?  You can subscribe.

Did you see another neat genealogical or history oriented publication on Issuu?
Do you know of another similar site where the complete contents of publications are available for free access?

The Library of Congress -- a NEW & FREE Magazine!



There’s something NEW & FREE for us to read!

The Library of Congress (LOC) has just started to produce a bi-monthly magazine.  Do check out the September/October 2012 issue of The Library of Congress Magazine (PDF format).  As described by LOC ...

The War of 1812, often called the Second American Revolution, resulted in the burning of the U.S. Capitol and most of its contents. The Library of Congress arose from those ashes to become the largest library in the history of the world. Our premiere issue discusses our history as well as the services we offer to Congress and to researchers today.

I found the magazine very colorful, easy-to-read and full of fun little tidbits of news both about the LOC and its holdings.  As with any vast resource, for the LOC there is so much going on that it becomes challenging to keep current with what’s new and to also appreciate its history and resources already made available to us – the public.

The LOC is invaluable – both its architecture and contents are amazing!  It also has an incredibly diverse online presence, http://www.loc.gov/index.html, which I cannot even begin to adequately describe and do justice to.

As stated in this initial volume ...

When Congress purchased Thomas Jefferson’s wide-ranging personal book collection to restart the congressional library, Jefferson observed, “There is no subject to which a Member of Congress may not have occasion to refer.” More than two centuries later, the Library continues to draw from its vast collections to serve the research needs of Congress, while sharing its rich resources with the nation and the world.   

The LOC is truly a resource for all of us!  And, it’s nice that there is now a magazine to give a voice to this invaluable repository.  I am hoping that, like Prologue (produced by NARA), this will become a publication often referenced by us as we research our ancestors and seek context about their lives and the records created about them.

What did you think of the new The Library of Congress Magazine?
