Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter is 12 Years Old

Dick Eastman wrote in his latest newsletter, Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter, distributed yesterday, "Boy, the time does fly! Twelve years has slipped by in almost the blink of an eye. It seems like only yesterday that I sent the first e-mail newsletter to about 100 people, mostly members of CompuServe's Genealogy Forums. None of them knew in advance that the newsletter would arrive; I simply mailed it to people who I thought might be interested. In 1996 nobody objected to receiving unsolicited bulk mail; the phrase "spam mail" had not yet been invented. I shudder to think if I did the same thing in today's Internet environment."

Congratulations, Dick!
