An Enhancement to Message Board Valuations

Footnote

AE Footnote

By Bruce McKinney

Effective with the August issue of AEM we are beginning to selectively illustrate answers to appropriate questions with links to records in the AED. In this way we hope to provide clarity on what are sometimes very complex issues. To understand how this works click here to go to Message Boards and look for answers to questions that contain this link: AE Footnote.

The posted question about Scraps of California History Never Before Published, 1880 contains a AE Footnote link.

We will only answer questions randomly. If you have a group of questions consider to sign-up for a week: $7.95 and do research at your leisure. If you find these services valuable you can upgrade anytime within that week to monthly [$14.75] or annual [$141.60] membership and receive full credit for your initial payment. Here is a link to sign-up if you are interested to take this step now.
