If some of you don't know, I am also the newsletter editor of the News Leaf, a publication of the Phoenix Family History Library where I volunteer. If you like to read genealogy newsletters, maybe you might like ours!
Our library is still pretty new, so we don't have a website as yet. So, I am publishing the newsletters on the web via my blog. To read these newsletters, click here. And, if you want to join our mailing list, email us at:
