This is the new, on-line version of the old Coffey Cousins’ Newsletter. Early readers may recall that Leonard Coffey began this newsletter in 1981 as well as the tradition of readers annual gathering at what has come to be called the Coffey Cousins’ Reunion.
When Leonard passed away in 1989 his family gave all rights to the newsletter to Bonnie Culley, a long time Coffey Cousin. Bonnie published the newsletter for more than 20 years; from 1989 until 2012. When health concerns arose for both her and her husband Jim, she asked me to take a stab at publishing. It is now my responsibility to maintain the standards set by Leonard and enhanced by Bonnie!Publication:
will be published on-line and in print at least once per
subscription is $15/yr. Readers are
encouraged to submit queries, their genealogies, their brick
walls and any other info such as genealogical opinions (such
as “I disagree with that family line,”, etc.) documentation,
photographs, and the like.

newsletter will appear below.

Your comments about
the newsletter (design, layout, etc) are welcomed.
A new feature has

so cannot help there.

designed your browser.
If you are unable
to read any PDF on your computer, you probably can't read
these. Check my suggestion above for PDF Viewer.
If an internet
link is not "clickable" in a PDF, highlight it with your
mouse, then copy and paste into your browser.
