The Bramble Bush
For $12.00 a year the Bramble Bush is a bargain in anyone's book! This informative quarterly newsletter is published by The MARION COUNTY ARKANSAS HERITAGE SOCIETY (referred to as MCAHS). Under the direction of the smooth pen and silvery tongue of editor Vicki Roberts, this quarterly offers readers more than just an occasional glimpse into Marion County's past.
The Bramble Bush is so named because the families of Marion County "don't make a forest of separate family trees; they make a thoroughly intertwined bramble bush - often as tangled as honeysuckle or as thorny as greenbriar" ( Vicki Roberts BB issue Vol 1 No 4 Oct 1996)
Each issue of the Bramble Bush has a front page story written by Vicki Roberts each dealing with Marion county's past history.
Vicki brings clarity, humor and makes history come alive to the reader in every issue.
Past Front Page Stories Include:The First Six Years of MCAHS
Marion County Past
Marion County As She Was in 1836
The Tutt, King and Everett War
La Riviere Blanche (the White River)
Vicki uses the old "serial" approach to her stories and leaves you "cliff hanging" until the next issue.
Each issue contains;
Feature Cover Story
Families & Fairs (designed to announce dates and places of reunions, ancestor fairs and historical commemorations wherever they may be held)
Service Directory (a place to advertise books, articles, products and services available that relate to historic and/or genealogical research)
Recent Acquisitions (new items added to the Marion County Heritage Arkansas Society research room)
Bits & Pieces (short bits of interesting information from the past)
http://www.*.* (interesting web sites)
Little Known Not Forgotten (all kinds of interesting history)
Trivia (most anything)
General Interest (Bios, stories of the past, family generation reports, articles from the Mt. Echo Newspaper. This section is apt to have about anything in it.)
