SDJM Newsletter

From the time of its founding in 1983 until 2006, the Society published a periodical newsletter as a repository for the shared research, input, and findings of the membership regarding Johannes de la Montagne's descendants and relevant history. The mailing list for this newsletter included a number of major libraries and genealogical archival societies across the country.

Every issue contained the member roster, introductions of new members, featured articles, an editorial column, a forum section for letters and queries (query submission was free for members and non-members alike), and on-going genealogical research projects.

Back issues may be ordered by mail, subject to availability. Please contact the Editor, Lois Stewart, by email for mailing and payment information, or to inquire after content.
