Looking for a Few Good Writers for FORUM

Are you interested in sharing your knowledge with the genealogy community? Why not write an article for FORUM? We are looking for research-related and society-related articles for upcoming issues.  We are open to other topics, but here is a list of working titles to get your thoughts flowing:

Research-Related Articles
  • Roaming Among the Stones: ## Tips for Effective Cemetery Research
  • Top ## Strategies for Researching Your Jewish Ancestors
  • City Directories: More Than Just a List of Names
  • How to Choose the Genealogy Database Program That’s Right for You
  • Cousin Connection: Reaching Out to Distant Relatives
  • DNA Research Strategies for Adoptees
  • How to Plan an Unforgettable Family Reunion
Society-Related Articles
  • Cloud Computing, Can Your Society Benefit?
  • ## Unique Project Ideas for Your Society
  • Is It Time to Bring Your Bylaws Into the 21st Century?
  • Enhance Your Membership Benefits with Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
  • ## Ways to Engage Your Long-Distance Members
Need more ideas?  Think about how you use certain programs/apps or products for genealogy, such as Evernote, spreadsheets, or scanners, and share your tips for success.  Or, what about sharing your specialized knowledge of underutilized resources such as state censuses, court records, legislative petitions, or territorial papers?  Are you well-acquainted with researching an ethnic group and can offer tips to others?  Are you a past or present society leader with words of wisdom to pass along to new society leaders?  The possibilities are endless!

If you are interested in writing an article (or two!) for FORUM, please contact me at  Deadlines for upcoming 2016 issues are:  January 15, March 15, and June 15. 

We are looking for an editor for the Reviews section, as well as additional book and product reviewers.  Those interested should contact me at to discuss further.
