You have recently signed up to become a follower of the Digging History blog. However, the blog is currently being converted to a monthly digital magazine format, available by individual issue purchase or subscription. Most of the articles at the blog have been snipped away with links to the new magazine site, so there is not much in the way of article content, nor are any new history articles being posted there in the future.
Digging History Magazine is a colorful magazine (PDF) delivered via email each month, with a focus on history and genealogy. Since the magazine launched in January 2018 it has grown in size from 40 pages to 70 for the latest (June) issue. Some months have a running theme, but most of the time you will find an eclectic mix of articles. Even the articles slanted toward genealogy are full of history as well.
Since you have signed up as a follower of the blog, I would like to send you a free issue of the new magazine. I’ll even let you choose the one you want to peruse:
July’s issue is in the works currently and will include a focus on early American history in honor of Independence Day. In August — hot, hot August — we’re going to The Klondike! Since March the magazine features a regular monthly column, “Appalachian Histories & Mysteries”, penned by Kalen Martin-Gross who grew up in southwest Virginia and is understandably proud of her heritage.
I sincerely hope you’ll take the time to check out the magazine and consider becoming a subscriber. Subscriptions are easy to purchase and there’s a plan to fit every budget (month-to-month, 3-month, 6-month and 1-year). Each subscription is recurring until you tell me you’d like to cancel. Use the discount code “2OFFSUM18” at checkout when purchasing a one-year subscription for even more savings.
To try the magazine out, contact me with the issue you’d like to receive. Currently, there is a contest which ends on December 31, 2018 to boost subscriptions. Each subscription (of any length) gives you a chance to win either 10 hours of genealogical research or a custom family history chart (valued at $250-300). Refer someone and get TWO more entries and more chance to win.
