Beginning in June of 2016, the daily posts featured at the Amsterdam NY Birthday Blog will be summaries of the stories I write for each recognized individual. Beginning also in June of 2016, at the end of each month I will distribute a free newsletter, which will include the complete stories for three of the birthday celebrants I’ve recognized that month along with a fun-to-take Amsterdam Birthday Quiz. All of the answers to each month’s quiz questions will have something to do with current or former Amsterdam residents born during that month.
If you join our mailing list, you will receive these monthly newsletters via e-mail. Later this year (2016) the second edition of “A Year’s Worth of Amsterdam Birthdays” will be published in hard-copy format. The second edition will include complete personal profiles for all of the birthday celebrants this blog recognizes during the 2016 calendar year.
Every one who signs up for the Amsterdam Birthday Blog’s mailing list will receive a pre-publication invitation that will entitle you to reserve a copy of this second edition at a fifteen percent discount off of its list price. (Note: If you’re not sure you are on the Amsterdam Birthday Blog’s mailing list go ahead and sign up now. Duplicate e-mail addresses will be purged before the newsletter is e-mailed so you will only get one message from us.)

This first edition is now for sale at: Liberty Fresh Market on 4867 State Highway 30, Amsterdam, NY; The Book Hound, 16 East Main Street, Amsterdam, NY; or you can order it online here.
