Periodicals on the AmericanAncestors.org Site

There are quite a few Periodicals and Journals on www.AmericanAncestors.org, the revamped New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) website. They are imaged and indexed.

The periodicals and journals include (from the Database Catalog page - select Periodicals, Journals and Articles from the dropdown Category list):

* American Ancestors Journal -- Volume 163 (2009)

* Death Notices from the New York Evening Post , 1801-1890

I took the volume numbers and the years included from the web page, so they may be imperfect.

Access to these online journals and periodicals, with an every name search function, is a tremendous membership benefit and research asset for the NEHGS member.

Thanks, Randy. I've been a member for years (actually it was the first society I ever joined), but this is the best yet! Plus it's a real incentive for New York and Virginia researchers to sign up, too!
