=== Free Shipping through Monday ===================


The season is changing, and we're celebrating the equinox by offering you FREE

SHIPPING in the Wholly Genes store for the next few days. (A flat rate of just

$4.00 applies on orders that are delivered outside the U.S. and Canada). This

is a perfect time to get the software, books, video training tapes, data CDs,

and other products that you've always wanted, while saving a bundle on shipping!


If you haven't seen the Wholly Genes Store recently, you may be surprised to

learn that we have THOUSANDS of products in our inventory, including classic

genealogy books by Elizabeth Shown Mills, Tom Kemp, Karen Clifford, Pat Hatcher,

Kip Sperry, Elizabeth Petty Bentley, Val Greenwood, Lou Szucs, and others at

discounted prices. At just $4.50, for instance, Ms. Mills' "Quicksheet: Citing

Online Historical Resources" is 15% OFF the suggested retail price. You won't

find it for less anywhere else!


In fact, all of our genealogy methodology books are at least 15% OFF the

suggested retail price every day! That includes the new version of "The Source:

A Guidebook of American Genealogy" (Third Edition) from Ancestry.com at just

$67.95 (regular price $79.95). This essential resource weighs more than 5

pounds, so it is expensive to ship -- but you can get it for 15% OFF and free

shipping today.


We also have searchable copies of many rare and classic genealogy books, parish

records, census records, city directories, obituaries, maps & gazetteers, and

published pedigrees on CD-ROM. Let us help with your research, using rare

genealogical resources from the United States, England, Ireland, Scotland,

Wales, Canada, Australia, and other countries. These data CDs include high-

quality images of every original printed page, and most support a full text



Always make the Wholly Genes store your first source when you're looking for

genealogy methodology books or data CDs.


Our free shipping offer expires this Monday, September 25th, so don't delay!

=== Remembering TMG Keyboard Hot Keys ============


If you have trouble remembering the keyboard hot keys in TMG, the Roots Users

Group of Arlington, Virginia, has come up with a great solution. A new article

on their web site (and soon to be published in their newsletter) shows you how

to leverage TMG's own features to create a pop-up window showing all of the

keyboard hot keys -- or anything else that you want.


The Arlington RUG is among the largest TMG users groups in the world and one of

the few that publish a printed newsletter - so membership would benefit you no

matter where you live. At just $15 per year (including newsletter postage) it is

a bargain. They offer a very informative web site (including a members-only

section), monthly meetings with scheduled speakers, periodic workshops, a media

library, a download library, and an opt-in published membership roster so you

can correspond with other members or maybe find one in your area.


The new article that helps you create a pop-up window of TMG hot keys is an

example of their good work -- and it is free. Just go to their web site at

http://www.RootsUsers.org and then click on "Hot Key help -- read Keyboard

Template Replacement article."



=== Discount Expiration ===========================


The popular new "Compendium of New England Pioneers" from Archive CD Books USA

contains searchable copies of each of the 14 classic genealogical directories of

early New England settlers on a single CD-ROM. At just $89.95, this great

research tool spans nearly 8300 pages and thousands of families through several

generations. Now it also includes a free bonus of nine high-quality maps of the

New England settlement (1629-1812). The CD lets you do a single search across

all 14 books (22 volumes) at the same time and supports AND, OR, phrase, and

proximity searches (e.g., "Smith within 20 words of Jones"). It makes a great

gift for any researcher of New England families!


Wholly Genes customers who previously purchased a copy of Savage's "A

Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England" or any of the

other individual books that are contained in the Compendium received a private

coupon code by email on August 18th. The coupon code provides those users with

full credit for those previous purchase(s) when upgrading to the Compendium. If

you received such a coupon code, this is a reminder that it expires on September

30th. Don't miss this chance to get a discount on this great research tool.


For more information about the "Compendium of New England Pioneers," please

ANIMAP PLUS by Gold Bug Software -

$58.95. 25% OFF the suggested retail price!

years. Maps may be viewed separately, or the program can set them in motion so

you can automatically view the boundary changes. Maps of the full U.S. are also

included, showing all the changes in state and territorial boundaries from 1776

to the present. Each map includes a listing of the changes from the previous

map, making it simple to keep track of parent counties. There are four speed

adjustments in the "run" mode as well as the ability to advance by single
