Maybe some day they will return to their roots - genealogy.

Wow! Have not looked at the newsletter in ages. When did they go political! 30% or more has nothing to do with genealogy. It’s offensive to see abortion and political content in a genealogy newsletter.

I have to agree, I find most of their content totally offensive.

I simply immediately hit the delete button.
