Each issue of the American Ancestors quarterly magazine contains information about newly added searchable record collections to the website (which is part of the New England Historic Genealogical Society subscription).  

The Winter 2016-2017 issue (Volume 17, number 4) provides this listing of newly added databases:

You can access any of these databases individually and search them - but you have to use the search fields on the Database Search page (

On the Database Search page, you can select a Database from the dropdown list.  I expanded the list by clicking on the down arrow for the "Database" field:

I highlighted "The American Genealogist" database on the screen above.  I could add a given name and/or a surname to the Name fields and search that specific database.

There is a wealth of digitized material on this website.  I use it all the time, and it makes this subscription very worthwhile.

DISCLOSURE:  I am a paid member to NEHGS since 1994, and have received no material considerations from NEHGS over that time.
