Coming Attractions!

Shades preempts "Friday From The Collectors" this week to announce some exciting additions to our digital publication.

Starting November 2, 2008, Shades will welcome four new columns under the banner, Weekend With Shades. We have exciting contributors in the areas that have caught your interest. So help Shades welcome our new columnists and take a moment to read what they have planned for you.

The GraveYard Rabbit - November 2
A Tiny Ghost In The Gloom And Gleam
Content To Roam Where The Dead Men Dream
The Introduction

The Healing Brush - November 9
Preserving Our Ancestors
One Pixel At A Time
The Introduction

Captured Moments - November 16
Every Picture Tells A Story

The Introduction

Appealing Subjects - November 23
Where Law and Photography Meet!
The Introduction

We're familiar with the Q&A Columns in magazines and online, but in our line of endeavor we know there aren't always answers, only Expert Direction.

So Shades is launching a Q&E column and we've lined up some of those "in the know" to point us in the Expert Direction.

Do you have a question about a family photograph or a photograph in your collection? Send an email to Shades, attach the photo, and we'll find the Expert with the Direction.

Shades will contact you by e-mail if your question is chosen. If chosen, Shades may publish the picture and the Expert Direction in this digital publication.

The Way It Was will be a series of posts on life as it was When! Starting next week Shades will host an article about Visiting Cards. In a recent challenge by Denise Levenick, The Family Curator and a Shades Friday From The Collector, lost treasure was discovered relating to the Victorian custom of visiting cards. Shades will launch a series of articles to show and explain this example of life, "The Way It Was."

And so it begins! Shades hopes you will enjoy the changes and challenges with us in the coming months.

I'm honored that you will be presenting Graveyard Rabbit at SHADES on a monthly basis.

Your very kind invitation to become a regular columnist is most flattering and I sincerely appreciate you allowing your excellent publication, SHADES, to be used by me to promote the importance of cemeteries and grave markers to historians and family researchers. I'm excited about starting the column next month at SHADES --- and look forward to preparing a monthly article for your readers.

And, who knows, I just might make Graveyard Rabbits of them all!

I look forward to reading all your other new columns and regular features. Wow! I think we are in for an interesting time at SHADES.

What a wonderful series you have lined up for us, footnoteMaven! Terry, George, Jasia and Craig - you are some of my favorite online genealogy authors. We have quite a treat in store from you as "Weekend With Shades" columnists.

Now, if I could just find the time to keep up with all of this good reading!

It's lookin' good fM! I'm really excited to be a part of your new venture. And I'm tickled to be in such esteemed company as George, Craig, and Terry! Me and three gentlemen... I like those numbers!

I predict that Weekend With Shades will be hugely popular!
