NewsLeaf Editor Announced

Joyce Fingland has been appointed the new NewsLeaf and e-NewsLeaf editor. She has already assumed the editorship of e-NewsLeaf (the first issue will be out in April), and she will produce the first issue of NewsLeaf in August.

I have been the editor of NewsLeaf since 1996, and editor of e-NewsLeaf since 1998, and now I am the editor of Families - the journal of the Ontario Genealogical Society.

It will seem strange not to have the editorship of NewsLeaf in which I worked directly with the Regional Directors and Chairs of the Branches of the OGS, but am pleased to know that it will be in good hands with Joyce.

From e-Announce of March 4th, 2011 -

The Ontario Genealogical Society is pleased to announce the appointment of Joyce Fingland as Editor of NewsLeaf and e-NewsLeaf.

Currently the Editor of Kingston Relations, Joyce is an active OGS member who belongs to the Kingston, Quinte, and Ottawa branches. She has worked on the Kingston Branch Publications Committee and has authored several books about the history of her family as well as an article about British Home Children. Joyce also brings extensive technical and layout experience from her work with the Limestone District School Board.

Joyce will be taking over the position previously held by Elizabeth Lapointe, who was recently appointed Editor of Families, and who can now direct all of her energies to that endeavour.

We are happy to have Joyce with us, and look forward to her work on NewsLeaf.
