Style Guide

We've mentioned a style guide here before, but I've never really sat down to work on it. I realize there are other style guides out there for genealogical publications, but decided that there's nothing wrong with creating one of our own.

All of my blogs/writing will try and follow the "style guide" as closely as possible. Our guide will focus on terms and definitions of words at this point. We will leave grammar to much later. You can see our small start in posts on my Rootdig blog with the tag "style guide" here.

Suggestions for additional words to consider adding to the list are welcomed.

Subscription Price to Go Up 20 May 2014

We've had the same subscription price to Casefile Clues for the past several years, but a variety of costs have gone up.

Effective 20 May 2014 the subscription price for renewals or new subscriptions will be $20. Until then, the price of $17 remains in effect.

Renew now to avoid missing the deadline. Additional notices regarding the price change will not be sent.

Casefile Clues to Return from Hiatus

After a hiatus, we are ready to resume distribution of Casefile Clues.

We are looking forward to returning to our research, analysis and discussion of records. And, yes, we are even looking forward to returning to citations. We’ve got stories on some old favorites, follow ups to a few missing links, and new families and locations to discuss. We are excited about what’s coming up in the newsletter.

An email about the newsletter was supposed to be sent earlier to all subscribers, but apparently it did not go out. All subscribers will receive the full number of issues that were a part of their original subscription. Subscribers who have been left on the distribution list after their subscription expired will be removed from the list.

Questions can be sent to me at
