Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
During January, I have been sending out pre-publication notices and order forms for my book, Thomas Petyous of Norwich, England, and His Pettus Descendants in England and Virginia, Volume 1, to interested parties. So far, I have received paid subscriptions for 92 copies from parties in the U.S. and the U.K. My plan is to sign a contract by 1 March with Otter Bay Books, LLC, of Baltimore, MD, to print 250 books when I have paid subscriptions for 150 copies. so I am now over halfway to my goal. For me to achieve this goal, however, anyone wishing to subscribe should do so by contacting me via USPS (see my pre-publication notice and order form posted last month) at his or her earliest convenience and by mid-February at the latest.
