The Maine Genealogist (MG) is the quarterly journal of the Maine Genealogical Society. The editor is Joseph C. Anderson II, FASG, and a genealogical super hero. Most of my genealogical journals are behind schedule, either slightly or hugely, but not MG. It is always on-time and wonderful to read. Joe Anderson is also the co-editor of The American Genealogist which is more than six months behind (July 2009 issue not yet out). However, that is largely due to the health woes of one of the other editors. Joe is responsible either solely or partly for the vital records of Kittery, Berwick, York County Maine Probate Abstracts 1800-1850, and nine volumes of Maine Families in 1790. And now he just edited the Cape Elizabeth, Maine Vital Records. Where does he find the time?
However, in one of the articles on Samuel Gould, I noticed that a child was missing that was in my Pinkham article: Miriam Gould married Edmund Pinkham. I immediately saw it because Miriam's father was Mussey or Muzzey Gould. You don't forget such names. There's really no way to see everything when doing genealogy, but it does somewhat reinforce my wondering about publishing articles in the first place. I'm not interested in casting aspersions, I am simply wondering how we can best share information as a genealogical community.
