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 t 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:
This newsletter will be published on-line and in print (by subscription only) at least once per quarter. print 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.
Links to each new newsletter will appear below. Simply
click on the read it. You can also download each copy to your hard drive and print it should you want to. The file is a PDF (portable document format) file that can be read in your browser. Otherwise, I suggest the freePDF-Viewer
from Tracker Software.
Your comments about the newsletter design, layout, etc) are welcomed.
A new feature has been added to this site. A free download area where books associated with various Coffey/ee, and allied families will be
periodically made available for your use. Click on this download link to visit the site.
These newsletters are created each quarter using a Microsoft based PC and MS Word. They are "printed" to PDF using one of two
utilities: Nitro PDF Creator/Reader or Primo PDF Creator. They are readable on-line using current (2014) versions of Opera, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Chrome browsers.
Normally, a user can left click on the desired volume and it will open in their browser. Or, by right click on a newsletter and select "Open." If using the Chrome browser select "Open in
new tab." In Chrome, readers can also right click, choose "Save link as" and the PDF will download to your computer. In Opera it is "Save linked content as." In Internet Explorer it is "Save target
as." I don't have Firefox on my computer any longer so cannot help there.
If you are using some other browser and are having difficulty reading or downloading the newsletter, please contact the folks who 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.
