From the IDG Water Cooler – a letter from the editors

With the release of September’s issue of Going In-Depth, the editors announced some upcoming changes to the magazine. Here’s the information if you didn’t get a chance to read it.

IDG-BadgeDear Loyal Readers,

We wanted to give you an update on some upcoming changes to our website. As you are aware, we’ve been providing the magazine for free since February 2013. As our time constraints and publishing needs have increased, we can no longer ask our team of writers to continue to write for us pro bono. So in order to provide a better product and give IDG the attention it demands we’ve decided to develop a membership program for our website.

This was a difficult decision to come to as we have always promoted our magazine as being free to all. While we’d love to be able to do that; we also know the huge amount of work and time spent to make each issue happen. We simply cannot continue without some method of covering our costs and the demands to put out a great product.

Starting on October 1, 2014 we will begin offering membership to our website. At that time, our digital magazine will only be accessible to our members. Behind the “members only” side of the website we will have all issues of Going In-Depth. Four of our earliest issues which had guest writers will remain available for free to the public.

The blog posts will remain completely free and public. We are also in the process of having all of the past issues of the magazine available for sale as a color paperback. This will be through our Createspace account and membership will include discounted rates on our books and magazines.

One great thing about being able to pay our writing team for their efforts is that we will now be able to hire “in-demand” writers on specific topics that previously we could not afford. Our recent survey results show a need for more advanced topics and more on citations, research organization, and technology. We hope to pursue writers with the knowledge and expertise that will make our magazine more well-rounded for the readers. We appreciated your comments and hope that you will consider joining us as a member!

Here’s what we will be offering starting October 1st:
For $35/year or an initial offering of a $100 lifetime membership:
– Access to all magazines along with free downloads (18 issues to date means just under $2/issue!)
– 10% off all purchases of pdfs, books, and magazines.
– 10% off on all future offerings (i.e. webinars/courses/etc.)

Thanks again for all your support over the past few years. We hope this will make it easier to grow to help all of us become better educated genealogists.

In the meantime, enjoy this issue of Going In-Depth and please join us on Facebook to discuss it!

Why Research Your Civil War ancestor?

Because your Civil War ancestor’s story is a part of our country’s history. Yet more than that it’s a part of your story. To know your Civil War ancestor, his life and military service, is to know a part of you.

Ancestors In A Nation Divided will guide you through the steps of researching your Civil War ancestor. From the beginning if you only have a name – to an in-depth search of his military and post-war life this book will guide you through the process.

Packed with the resources you need to research you’ll be able to:

° Begin even if you don’t know where to start
° Understand Compiled Military Service Records and Pension Files
° Find your Civil War ancestor in little known and under-used censuses
° Take a look at Provost Marshall Records
° Learn about Confederate Military History and the Official Records
° Take a look at long forgotten resources like the Old Soldiers Home, GAR and UVC membership
° And so much more!

Whether your ancestor fought for the Union or the Confederacy, Ancestors In A Nation Divided will help you open the doors to his military service. You’ll learn about the battles he fought, camp life, injuries he may have sustained and more. Your research will put you alongside your ancestor in his Civil War journey. You’ll learn about his experiences and in knowing what he lived through you’ll be able to appreciate his service all the more. The Civil War changed this country’s path, it shaped our nation into what we know today and your ancestor had a hand in that. Ancestors In A Nation Divided will help you start learning about your Civil War ancestor today.

It’s the August issue of Going In-Depth!

Going In-Depth is a free, digital genealogy magazine presented by The In-Depth Genealogist. In each monthly issue, you’ll find guest articles, regular columns, and free resources such as Ask Ephraim and MIAA to help you along your family history journey. As with all IDG products, they strive to create a resource for every genealogist, no matter the age, stage, or focus of your research.
