E-Magazine Volume 12 Issue 5: Computer Aid & Genealogy Thursday, May 2 2013 

Have you looked online for digital archives of genealogy publications? Many organizations place previously unpublished records in their publications and have started allowing online access to back issues and/or indexes!

E-Magazine Volume 12 Issue 5: Marketing Thursday, May 2 2013 

Not all free PR is good: What to do about a review that doesn’t truthfully represent the published content? Look long and hard at the item and seek other’s input – is there even a grain of truth to it? Address any facts before moving onto untruths. In print, contact the publisher – any ethical publication will strive for an unbiased product, though reviews are still many times considered opinion. Think positive: This contact may lead to more press that may not have happened without this extra follow up.

E-Magazine Volume 12 Issue 5: Design Thursday, May 2 2013 

Hard bound books using bonded leather cover material is a fairly economical upgrade in elegance. A great “coffee table book” cover, it even retains much of the unique smell of leather. This material averages an up-charge of $5.00 per book in small quantities – if the color selected is in stock.

E-Magazine Volume 12 Issue 5: Define A-Z Thursday, May 2 2013 

ARC: abbreviation – Advanced Reading Copy

Archival (Quality): The use of this term varies from the logical definition of the individual words to a wide variety of standards – always have a company explain their definition.  See Also Archival webpage.  Below is a definition from “Preserving Family Keepsakes Do’s and Don’ts”, Ilene Chandler Miller, 1996:

“A term that suggests a material or item is permanent, durable and chemically stable and therefore safe for the preservation of our keepsakes.”
