FREE Ebook - The 15 Habits of Highly Frugal Genealogists by Thomas MacEntee - “Researching your family history can be fun, but like many hobbies, it can turn into an obsession, and an expensive one at that. There are many ways to save money while you pursue the “hunt” for your roots: some are just common sense while others are, frankly, ingenious. Also keep in mind that it doesn’t pay to be so focused on “frugal” that in the long run you either lose money or that genealogy is no longer “fun.” Normally $2.99, now FREE through Friday, May 6th - click here to download - via Amazon
