The Editor’s Corner


Important information about the future of this Newsletter. Have decided to become an 'all electronic'

publication by the end of this year (October 2004), which means that the Newsletter will be available

by email, and on the web [www.mcaninch.net > Newsletters], but, no hard-copy paper printing, and

no USPS mailings (despite the clear “First Class” markings, they still manage to mangle or lose one

or two copies each quarter). So, this is a ‘test’ issue, dual distribution, notice being sent electronically

to the email addresses that I have for most of you, and also by USPS mail. During this ‘cross-over’

period, if you get a copy in the mail, but not by email, you need to send me an updated email address

Of course, this issue, and every issue, will be posted on the web [www.mcaninch.net > Newsletters].


Be careful out there. MorphCorp / The Family News is at it again, trying to sell their worthless

“The Year 2004 International McAninch Family Yearbook”. Dick Eastman has discussed this scam,

http://www.ancestry.com/library/view/columns/eastman/5362.asp, and the Better Business Bureau of

Denver / Boulder says “On April 24, 2003 this company's membership in the BBB was revoked by the

BBB's Board of Directors due to failure to eliminate the underlying cause of complaints on file with

the BBB concerning product quality.” http://www.denver.bbb.org/commonreport.html?compid=11038


World War II Army Records: NARA, the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration, has just

released their (massive) “World War II Electronic Army Serial Number Merged File, ca.1938-1946”,

with 8,866,786 total records [Army, with Army Air Corps, Cavalry, etc., but, not Navy, nor Marines].

There are records of 85 McAninch’s extracted from that new database.
