The article I was most interested in was the Henry Hoff article about New England articles in Genealogical Journals. The new book list has several interesting entries also, especially the Jeremy Bangs book.

I now receive the NEHGR by download from the NEHGS website, so I "miss" getting it in the mail;. I decided to go that route because I'm only one major earthquake away from being buried in my genealogy cave by the stacks of periodicals! The drawback is that I get no notice that the issue has been published or is available for downloading, so I have to remember to visit the NEHGS website in the publication months.
