Updated List of PERSI Collections with Page Images

The FindMyPast Blog post today is The Latest PERSI Image Update and lists 18 periodicals with newly added or updated page images.  PERSI is the PERiodical Source Index that was developed by Allen County (ind.) Public Library to catalog genealogy-related periodical articles.

The list of all of the currently available PERSI-indexed periodicals with page images is here.

There are currently 48 PERSI-indexed publications with images (note, only top of the list is shown below):

I discussed using PERSI on FindMyPast in:

*  Tuesday's Tip - Find Periodical Sources in PERSI - the Periodical Source Index on FindMyPast (posted 4 February 2014)

*  Finding NYGBR Images Using PERSI on - UPDATED (posted 9 October 2014).

This is good news for all researchers - there is a gold mine of information in periodical articles indexed by PERSI.  Users need to remember that this is not an every name search engine - the index is for periodical titles, authors, etc.  If a surname was listed in an article title, you will find it by searching for the surname.
