Here's your source for Family Tree Magazine's user-friendly take on what's happening inside the genealogy industry. We'll not only give you the news, we'll also tell you what it means to your genealogy research.
Along the way, we'll share expert research tips, behind-the-scenes peeks at life inside the cubicle walls of the country's best-selling how-to genealogy magazine, and the occasional random (and ideally, highly entertaining) thought. All with the hope of inspiring and furthering your family history search—and keeping it fun.

A little while back, we looked for a newbie genealogist to be a blogger for Family Tree University for six months. From the dozens of entries we received, we selected Nancy Shively of Skiatook, OK, as our Family Tree Firsts blogger! She's a librarian and budding genealogist who blogs about her discoveries, challenges and family stories.
