The Family Historian reaches about 1,000 family history researchers (many more readers) who may have collateral or direct connections to the Haymond family. It is a small-run compared to national genealogical magazines; yet it's probably the largest family history publication in Texas, and very supportive of research-oriented family associations. The big magazines usually ignore you unless you pay, but you're always welcome here because we want to know about reunions.

The most recent issue of the quarterly listed more than 130 upcoming family reunions, and the next issue has already exceeded 200 events taking place across the country. You can include your next family reunion by providing basic information (where, when, who to contact), or ignore the opportunity. Please know that "The Family Historian" was created, in part, because of my own frustrating experience in  trying to publicize a family reunion, and now I can help others.

If interested, be sure to include a postal address for information because many of the subscribers are "still" not on the Internet.
