* It is a great time to visit your local library, or archives of family history societies. Feel free to let me know what is happening in your area, or what you have attended or are planning to. We love to share...
* You will also find that there are some great discounts available for various subscription sites... don't dismiss them if perhaps your sub isn't due... contact them and let them know that you would like to renew as of your normal date, but would appreciate the discount offered to the newcomers... Of course, this won't work if you have just signed up with a great discount, but if you are a loyal subscriber, they may offer you the same to keep you. After all, in this economic climate, we all need to save that extra dollar ...
