Discover Your Roots is Family Tree Maker’s annual issue packed full of tips on getting started with your genealogy research.  Not only does it have tips for the most popular genealogy sites, but also tips on research old records, what to look for and what not to miss, and how to choose the right genealogy software for you.  The issue also includes some handy forms for recording your family tree information.

If you are a new genealogist, you should get your hands on this issue!  I got mine from Barnes and Noble via e-magazine and used their “free for 14 days subscription service.”  You can cancel anytime within 14 days if you don’t want to receive future electronic issues.
