With the Holiday Edition of Shades of the Departed Magazine, it is obvious that publisher/writer/photograph/footnote Maven has set a high standard of excellence for this new online publication, and I am excited to be one of the "Shadettes." So much better than being in the "shadows!"
This issue features columns by Shades regular contributors, footnoteMaven, Vickie Everhart, Rebecca Fenning, Sheri Fenley, George Geder, Craig Manson, Denise Olson, Caroline Pointer, Donna Pointkouski, and a new feature by The Photo Detective, Maureen Taylor. And, oh, my friend, Miss Penelope Dreadful was tickled to write a little something to accompany the cover photograph of Miss Margery Waters.
Pour yourself a cup of eggnog, put another log on the fire, and sit down with your laptop to enjoy a wonderful winter reading at Shades of the Departed Magazine. Then take a minute to drop footnoteMaven a note to let her know how much you like the project. It is truly a labor of love and a gift to the genealogy community. Thank you, fM.
