Unfortunately, for financial reasons (one issue costs over $1,200 US to produce and mail), this newsletter was put on hiatus shortly after the 9/11 tragedy.
This newsletter is printed and delivery by regular postal mail. Non-US subscribers are encouraged to make a donation in order to help defray international postage expenses.
Launched in May 1995 and originally named "Hot Chocolate", it was designed to be a practical resource for today's family historian. Beginning in 2000, the format changed to themed issues bringing together article abstracts, quick tips, links to online and offline resources. Val Laferrière, the creator of Hot Chocolate, continues gives her unique perspective on genealogy in each issue.
You may purchase copies of previous issues for a nominal fee of $2.00 (USD) per copy.
There is also an online archive of the Hot Chocolate articles.
