Today marks the beginning of a new chapter in the life of the FGS Voice, the monthly newsletter of the Federation of Genealogical Societies. The newsletter, which is sent by e-mail to those who subscribe to it, is now joined by this blog, which will enable FGS to get news out to the genealogical community immediately without the need to wait for the monthly deadline.
Don't worry! The monthly newsletter will continue to be sent out as it has always been, and it will contain newsworthy items from this blog, as well as additional items such as the calendar of FGS member society events. When you submit content to FGS Voice, it will usually appear first on the blog, and then in the newsletter.
As with most blogs, you can "subscribe" to the FGS Voice news blog so that you'll easily know when it has updated content, without the need to visit the blog itself to see. To do this, click on the "Subscribe to this blog" icon on the right (you can subscribe to the entries or separately subscribe to the comments). This will give you the option to identify what tool you are using to keep track of your blogs. (I like to use the free Google Reader tool myself.)
Just like with the monthly newsletter, feedback about the blog will be appreciated! I hope you enjoy this new way of keeping up with what's new with the Federation of Genealogical Societies, with its member societies, and with important events that affect all of us in the genealogical community.
