NEHGS has Genealogical Journals Online webpage

The New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) has created a separate web page for six scholarly genealogy periodicals called "Genealogical Journals Online: National Collection." This page is accessible to NEHGS members only.

The six journals include:

* New England Historical and Genealogical Register (1847 to present)

* New England Ancestors Magazine (2000 to present)

* The American Genealogist (1937 to present)

* The Connecticut Nutmegger (1968 to present)

* New Netherlands Connection (1996 to 2008)

* The Virginia Genealogist (1957 to 1966)

These periodicals are first and last name and subject article keyword indexed. Images of the original pages may be seen from the search results page. It is also possible to browse the pages by entering a Year (or volume number) and a page number.

Full Disclosure: I am not an employee or affiliate of NEHGS, but I am a paid-up NEHGS member and have access to these databases. No one paid me to publish this information.

What a strange thing to say. Does Ancestry.com or other pay-sites pay you? Why would you only make such a statement for the NEHGS?

Martin - the new FTC rules (effective 1 December 2009) require bloggers to state their conflicts. I've done it on the Ancestry.com posts today also. And will do it whenever I comment on a product or database.

I found this blog post informative.

Full disclosure: GeneaMusing does not pay or otherwise reimburse me for posting this positive comment.

The idea of disclosure is to disclose that you have a conflict. You're answering in the negative. It sort of sounds like the lady doth protest too much. You only have to announce that you work for someone if you're touting their product. I'm gonna guess that if you say the new Ancestry.com sucks (which it does), people will know you don't work for them.
