For twenty-five years, Your Genealogy Today has guided family historians through the holes in our brick walls. Unique sources and technical tips have helped thousands of the magazine’s readers for a quarter of a century. However, the latest issue, September/October 2021, is the last. Your Genealogy Today is reportedly another victim of COVID-19. The pandemic provoked disruptions in the global supply chain that delayed the delivery of essential supplies to the printer. This, in turn, postponed the release of this recent issue. Apparently, it was also the straw that broke the publisher’s back, prompting this difficult business decision.
That’s the bad news. The good news is that past issues remain available for download on the website. Going forward, new content in the Your Genealogy Today (YGT) style will be found in the sister magazine, Internet Genealogy, from the same publisher, Moorshead Magazines Ltd. Moorshead has announced that this is a merger of YGT with Internet Genealogy.
Want to know if there is content of particular interest to African-American family researchers? Below is a list of articles in recent issues that fit this bill. I’ll start this list with my own article!
Conceived in Reconciliation: Birth of a Passion. September/October 2021. Researching Antillean roots using French, British, and Caribbean records. By Yvette LaGonterie YGT_October2021.pdf (yourgenealogytoday.com)
African American Research: Colored News Part One. March/April 2021
Free Persons of Color: We Show You Where the Records Are. January/February 2021
What about Internet Genealogy? Since my subscription to YGT is being transferred to Internet Genealogy, I decided to check into it right away. An article about Green Books is in the August 2021 issue of Internet Genealogy.
