The 90-Day Promotion and Giveaway(s)

Digging History is currently offering a special promotion to everyone, especially attendees of the Texas State Genealogical Society Virtual Family History Conference and the entire membership of TxSGS, as we celebrate the conference theme, “Remembering Our Heritage“.  What better way to remember your heritage than with a custom-designed family history chart.  Details are as follows:

For every twenty recurring subscriptions (3-month, 6-month or one year) purchased between now and February 14, 2021, Digging History will hold a drawing to give away a free custom-designed family history chart (depending on size, worth up to $350).  There is NO expiration date as to when you can use your prize — do it now, do it later.  These charts are all unique as evidenced by these samples:  https://digging-history.com/charts/

By February 14, 2021, I would  to have given away multiple charts!  Not everyone, of course, will win a chart, but all subscribers to Digging History Magazine also receive the benefit of a generous 20% off all services (including charts).  Subscribers may also pick up to five back issues of the magazine for free.  Payments plans are available for all services should you need to budget any project.

NOTE:  Winners must remain a subscriber until their chart is completed.  Cancellation will result in forfeiture of your prize.  And, I hope by the time your chart is finished you will still want to continue subscribing!  Most issues of the magazine run between 75-100+ pages of tips, articles and stories linking history and genealogy (well-documented and researched articles, no ads).

This year the magazine has featured:  A “monster” issue on the Census (January-February), a couple of issues devoted to previously “shelved” articles (March-April and May-June), two issues featuring the great state of New Mexico (July-August and September-October).  The final issue of 2020 will feature articles, research tips and stories related to the Spanish- American War.

Looking Ahead

Tentatively, the first issue of 2021 is planned to have a focus on Appalachia and the region’s rich history.  How many of us have ancestors who settled there and then later fanned out across the nation?  Subsequent issues “brewing” are railroads, The Roaring Twenties, one or two state-focused issues, and who knows what else!

Sometime in 2021 (I don’t yet have a date, but hopefully sooner than later), all magazine subscribers will be invited to periodic Zoom sessions so that we may interact — talk about history, genealogy and more.  I hope to garner stories for future issues of the magazine.
