Going nuts. When I was a kid 1970-80s one of grandparents got me a subscription to a magazine that's main focus was early American history / colonial times. I 'think" it was a National Geographic title. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

No, but I'll bump it up for you.

Wasn't it just called "American History" I seem to remember it being a hardbound bi-monthly magazine (I had the same gift subscription). The successor to it can be found here: [url]http://www.thehistorynet.com/ah/[/url] [b]Memory Flash![/b] The magazine was called [b]American Heritage[/b] and can be found here [url]http://www.americanheritage.com/index.shtml[/url]

David, that's not it. Same concept though. But I did attend American Heritage schools as a kid.

I think I remember that too! Was the magazine smaller sized than normal? I may have gotten it too but I can't remember.

Was it "Early American Life"? I have a couple of them from the 70's.

Negative on all counts. Dammit. This is starting to bother me.

Have you looked at a good sized bookstore to see if it's still printed?

I know what you're talking about because I asked my mom last night and she remembered that magazine but didn't know the name either. The one I am thinking of had history articles written for a kid's perspective, and also had craft and hobby ideas in it (how to make Jesus sandals from old milk cartons, etc...)

Nothing, that ain't it. I'm damn near positive it was affiliated with a big known magazine like National Geographic.
