I’m very sorry, but tonight’s Editor’s Chat has had to be cancelled due to technical difficulties. Later I will post some of the news I had to share here. If you have genealogy news about events, website, recent issues – anything genealogical – you can include it in a comment here by replying to this posting.
See you here next month, 23 June 2014 at 7 pm.
