Moorshead Magazines Ceases Operations

It’s via an unverified, but reliable source.

“Please be advised that Moorshead Magazines Ltd has ceased operations.

The pandemic greatly affected our industry. We made significant changes in an effort to adapt, but the economic challenges were too great to overcome. This was a very difficult decision.

Moorshead Magazines Ltd”

It’s sad to see the only Canadian-produced commercial genealogy magazine, Internet Genealogy, go under. I’m sure Ed Zapletal, Rick Cree and the team gave it there all and wish them all the best following the decision.

  1. So very sad…the print business is a difficult one these days, and even internet magazines are a challenge. So sorry to hear that Internet Genealogy is now gone as well 🙁

  2. I loved their magazine! I wish they had announced this to their subscribers. 🙁 I have been trying to reach them for several days!

  3. As a long-time subscriber, I’m saddened to know that this magazine will no longer publish digitally or in print. I always enjoyed the articles and learned something from each issue!

  4. Like others, I am sad to see Internet Genealogy’s demise, however wish I had received a formal acknowledgement that this happened and some apology for my 3 year subscription that I will not be receiving.

    1. I am in the same boat as you. I renewed for one year on October 9 and never got a single electronic magazine after that. I never received a notice/apology for going out of business and no refund was ever received. An inferior experience given I had been a loyal customer for almost ten years.

    2. Exactly! I had a three year subscription to History Magazine. I’ve been buying it since the first issue; I wish this had been communicated to us. Sad that it’s gone but quite disillusioned by the treatment of longtime supporters.

  5. Sad to hear. Wish they would have notified their subscribers. Wish I wouldn’t have just done 3 year renewal in October 2023.

  6. Sorry to read this. I have been trying to get in touch with them for the past month to find out why the latest issue didn’t reach me. Wish they would of reached out to their subscribers to tell them they were closing and apologize to subscribers that still had magazines owed to them.

  7. Sorry to hear this. Ed is very honest, responsible individual who I’m sure did everything in his power to retain the business and staff. The pandemic has destroyed so much, one has to seriously ask why?
