New searchable databases on

Searchable databases on are, with few exceptions, a benefit of membership in the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS).

The new searchable databases include (transcribed from the Holiday 2008 edition New England Ancestors magazine, published by NEHGS):

* Sandwich, Massachusetts Vital Records
* Belchertown, Massachusetts Vital Records
* Index to Massachusetts Births, 1911-1915

* The Great Migration: Immigrants to New England, 1634-1635, Volume II, C-F

* New Netherlands Connections, Volumes 5-8

* Families of Ancient New Haven, Volumes 1-8

* Boston Church Records, Part 2
* Plymouth Church Records

I'm going to go explore the 1911-1915 Birth index for Seaver persons, the New Netherlands Connections for my recently found Long Island families, and the two church record databases for Seaver and other surnames.

Need information about NEHGS membership? Visit or call 1-888-296-3447.

I'm posting the names of the databases here because, as far as I can tell, they don't appear anywhere else on the Internet. These databases could help researchers find their "problem children" and might even bring more customers to NEHGS.
