The October 2006 issue of The American Genealogist journal arrived last week (Volume 81, No. 4, Whole Number 324, published in May 2007).

The Table of Contents includes:

* "The Whitney Lineage of John1 Whitney of Watertown, Massachusetts" by Robert Leigh Ward and Tim Doyle -- page 249

Each issue of TAG presents articles of this nature - research on families in the northeast USA, English ancestry of colonial immigrants, some royal or noble history lessons, and some humorous tidbits, plus the book reviews (8 of them in this issue).

The lead article on John Whitney's English ancestry was of main interest to me - I have this Whitney line. The articles on Nathan Rowley and Abijah Gale were interesting because of the techniques used to solve the research problems.

TAG is the journal that most often has information about my ancestral families. Many libraries have fairly complete sets - if you have New England or North Atlantic ancestors, you might check to see if there are articles in TAG for them.

Do you subscribe to this journal? Should you?
