Discovering Family History Closed

Ed Zapletal, the publisher of Moorshead Magazines, has announced today that his newest magazine, Discovering Family History, is closing with the March/April 2010 release.

It had been in production over two years, but as he has put it in his news release, "Although DFH was selling very well on the newsstands, with the stores taking an increasing number of copies each issue, we weren't simply able to get the new subscribers numbers to increase at a fast enough rate".

It is always sad to see a publication end its run, but as Ed says, the numbers to keep it in existence were just not there.

However, Family Chronicle and Internet Genealogy are going along just fine, and expect them to be around for a long time.

This year, Family Chronicle is 15 years old, and Internet Genealogy is five years old.

Over the years, I have written a number of articles for Ed in all three publications, and appreciate the chance to have written for DFH, as well as the other magazines.

I wish Ed and Rick and the staff at Moorshead Magazines continued success.
