NEW! Genealogy Bargains Website
For almost two years now, GeneaBloggers has been posting various Genealogy Bargains updates every Monday through Friday. While many have used the www.genealogybargains.com domain to save money, this site was a “subdomain” of geneabloggers.com. This past weekend I set up Genealogy Bargains on its on site, its own server and with its own special focus.
