Electronic Magazine – November 2014 v13#11: Computers Monday, Nov 3 2014 

Needing to migrate templates from older systems? One work-around is to open each and save a “blank copy” as a file, then open that file in the updates system and save as template once more.

Top reasons to publish electronically by disk:

  1. Physical product to give to paying customers –  for something concrete “in hand”.

  2. Easily update customers by including update links, cloud access, and/or emailing customers with provided update contacts for ongoing, value added, bonuses.

If the original work, for reprint, needs updating and it is preferred that new material be included within the original work, the copyright release being sought should indicate updating is expected or acceptable. Once the groundwork has been laid, decisions as to whether to insert new pages, leaving original pages untouched (except perhaps for renumbering), or updating an electronic copy should be made. Even if open ended, unlimited  copyright release is given, it is never recommended original material be altered – much like cropping a photo for publication should not involve scissors on the original photo or negative. Technology has advanced sufficiently that original material never need be destroyed.

December 2006, V5 #12: Genealogy Friday, Mar 20 2009 

Don’t forget to ask for family data updates in your end of year holiday mailings. So many of us put off adding family information to our working files because it can be done later. Sometimes this turns into loosing information. Remember to include your new family data in these mailings as well. This can be done as a separate sheet that can be easily discarded for those non-genealogy oriented family members.

Options that will not add to the cost of a periodical may include: 
Work with label producer to see if their software supports renewal date updates – put renewal date on mailing label (above address information) on each issue.
