Tim Schenck is an Episcopal priest, husband to Bryna, father to Benedict and Zachary, and \x34master\x34 to Delilah (about 50 in dog years). Since 2009 I've been the rector of the Episcopal Parish of St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, Mass. (on the South Shore of Boston). I've also served parishes in Maryland and New York. When I'm not tending to my parish, hanging out with my family, or writing, I can usually be found drinking good coffee -- not that drinking coffee and these other activities are mutually exclusive. I hope you'll visit my website at www.frtim.com to find out more about me, read some excerpts from my book \x34What Size are God's Shoes: Kids, Chaos & the Spiritual Life\x34 (Morehouse, 2008), and check out some recent sermons.

The Midwest Genealogy Center has a very large selection of print (hard) copies of genealogy periodicals, necessitating a trip to the Library to read them. Two of my favorites are Internet Genealogy and Family Chronicle, and I am always delighted when the next new issue arrives here. Each issue of Internet Genealogy is full of web links you can glean genealogy information from. Family Chronicle is a good periodical to read that provides instructions for searching a wide variety of genealogical subjects and places.



 



But here is good news for staying current right from your home computer or tablet, without having to make a trip to the MGC to see these periodicals, plus a few others. You can access them in the Online Resources section of the MCPL website using the Hobbies and Crafts Reference Center.



 



If you click on "publication" at the top left and search "genealogy" by subject and description, you can choose the periodical title and a list of the most current issue’s articles will appear.



 



Once you see an article you want to read, click on the "PDF Full Text" link and an image copy of the article as it is printed in the periodical will pop up.



 



So, prop your feet up and enjoy reading some genealogy articles without leaving home.
