Dear Genealogy Periodical Editors:
How do genealogical authors find your publication?
Genealogy periodicals—from popular magazines to state and national journals to the newsletters of local genealogical societies—are vital to the genealogy community.
Among other vital roles, periodicals
educate genealogists about records and research methodology;
enable genealogists with similar research interests to communicate with each other;
share local, national, and international news of concern to genealogists; and
allow researchers to publish the fruits of their research efforts.
Despite this central position in the genealogy community, there exists no central resource bringing together all of the genealogy periodicals published in the United States.
To do this we plan to publish the first U. S. Genealogy Writer’s Market in early 2014. This book will list basic details about genealogy periodicals, so that genealogical researchers and prospective writers can quickly and easily locate their ideal publishing markets.
In order to do this we need your help—just fill out the short online questionnaire at this address:
Please feel free to alert other editors to this project. If you have any questions or comments, please contact either of us at our respective emails.
