Hacker's Creek Journal

These journals, which have been published regularly since 1982, are a wealth of information. There are family histories, descendant lists, information about the churches, schools, cemeteries, and more. Click Here for an annotated Table of Contents to help guide you. In addition, it is a lot of fun to just choose an issue and be amazed at what you find there.

Up the Creek Newsletters

Shorter and a bit less regular than the Hacker's Creek Journal, the Up the Creek Newsletter has been published since 2015. It includes tips for genealogy, updates from the organization in addition to some stories that have come in between issues of the longer publication.
