It’s not often the likes of little ol’ me gets to do something big but I’m involved in something BIG!The In-Depth Genealogist (IDG) is an online community of genealogists helping each other in their research. With a well developed website, all genealogists can read the free monthly online newsletter, forums or blog. Readers are encouraged to leave comments or ask questions about specific aspects of their genealogy research. IDG has a strong presence on Facebook and Twitter too, adding fun to our genealogy research.
IDG is genealogists helping genealogists and I happen to be a part of this generous community! I write a monthly column for The In-Depth Genealogist. It’s Tracing Blue and Gray. Each month I write about the best methods of Civil War Research and also look into the real aspects of what our ancestors endured during their Civil War service. My first article debuted May 2012 and I’ve been with the newsletter ever since.
That is until this month. No longer is The In-Depth Genealogist a monthly digital newsletter. It’s now a monthly digital MAGAZINE!! Launching their premier issue yesterday February 15th, IDG is an expanded, beautifully formatted, treasure trove of guest articles, columns and genealogy resources. All free!

You’ll be amazed at all the info packed inside and if you haven’t subscribed yet click here, so the next issue of IDG is delivered to your inbox.
