newly discovered our resources . We hope that all researchers will continue to enjoy
reading the relevant newsletters, finding out about Reunions that are planned by family
history planners everywhere, and searching for lost family members of your lineage that

OUR COMMUNITY:
Letters from the Editor
In the spirit of providing information of interest to our many viewers, we have generated
“Letters from the Editor.” To read those Letters, go to the Banner, at the top of any
website page, then click on “Our Community.” Once the drop-down menu appears,
click on “Letters from the Editor.” A new page opens up with our Letters listed. Select
the Letter you wish to read and that Letter opens up on a new page. After reading a
Letter, you can either repeat this process, or click on the back-arrow to return to the
Letters list. We hope that, in time, you will decide to upload your choice of material that
would become a Letter from the Editor. Our most recent Letter from the Editor is:
Colonial Louisiana’s documents add to US history – Published 15 July 2013
Remember that under “Our Community” you can start or join a “FORUM.” You can use
most any topic for discussion.
We are preparing to have “Groups” available for membership only. We will have more
information available on this subject in the immediate future.
