The Jones Genealogist Newsletter

In 1989, after some 30 years of tree climbing, starting a family newsletter seemed like a good idea.

 Little did I realize that some 22 years later all this blogging and posting would take over.  At any rate, The Jones Genealogist (Newsletter) was the beginning of many years of letting folks know about the JONES surname.

The figure above is a copy of the 10th year of publication.  Each year was bound and made available to those who might have an interest.

The figure above is an example of one page of the newsletter as it was published 1999.  Starting with the IBM-XT, then the IBM-AT, the newsletter took its own life so to speak.   The Wisconsin Historical Society maintained its subscription throughout the years, and pretty much has a complete file of the newsletter.  Hard copies of the originals [and duplications] are now located at the Joseph Wheeler Jones Memorial Library, Danville, KY.  It contains much of the genealogy research results of my first 30 years of tree climbing.  Some of the old copies are still available.  It is now an Internet world.
