TIARA members receive a quarterly newsletter, usually running to 24 pages of 8 1/2 x 11.
The newsletter typically includes articles of general genealogical interest including submissions by TIARA members, a calendar of upcoming events in
the genealogical community, a list of books currently available to members at a discount, book reviews, photos, members' queries, and
articles and items of interest.
The TIARA newsletter is also available as a PDF file that can be downloaded from a server over the internet. Photos in the PDF file are usually in color and of a much better resolution than in the printed version. In order to keep TIARA's expenses down, please consider opting for this delivery method!
