Family Chronicle Gets a Name Change


According to Ed Zapletal, my friend, and the publisher at Moorshead Magazines Ltd., the venerable Family Chronicle Magazine is getting a name change. Beginning with the March/April 2015 edition, the magazine is titled Your Genealogy Today. The magazine website will also be changing to as of March 1.

The thinking behind changing the name was simply to refresh and renew the magazine, complete with new titling and several new columns. The magazine will continue to be printed in paper and pdf format, as well as app editions for mobile reading.

The new columns will be entitled:

  • Genealogy Tourism
  • DNA and Your Genealogy
  • Advice from the Pros

Subscribers don’t need to do anything. Family Chronicle subscriptions will be converted to Your Genealogy Today subs. The magazine will continue to be a bimonthy, with six issues printed per year.


I plan to do more writing writing for the magazine this year, so watch for articles under my name.
