Savoir faire — Winning newsletters can inspire societies

The winners of the National Genealogical Society’s awards in excellence of genealogy and family history newsletter editorship can offer ideas and inspiration to genealogy societies who want to spruce up their own newsletters. NGS announced the winners yesterday. Although recent issues of the winners’ newsletters are not available on their website for non-members, a copy can usually be had for not much more than the price of postage.
