Newly updated on AmericanAncestors.org, The American Genealogist database now includes volumes 74 through 77, publication years 1999 to 2002. This update adds more than 26,000 name records to this database.
The journal now known as The American Genealogist (TAG) has been published quarterly since 1923, and represents an important body of scholarly genealogical research covering the breadth of the United States (with an early preference for New England). NEHGS is pleased to offer it as a fully searchable online database. The current TAG database covers volumes 9–77. Volumes 1–8, covering the years 1923–1932, are already available online under the name “Families of Ancient New Haven.”
Founded by Donald Lines Jacobus, TAG is edited by a trio of NEHGS members: Dr. David L. Greene, FASG; Robert Charles Anderson, FASG, director of the NEHGS Great Migration Study Project; and Joseph C. Anderson II, FASG, who is also editor of The Maine Genealogist. These distinguished genealogists, along with dozens of highly-regarded contributors, uphold and advance the standards for genealogical scholarship so carefully articulated by Jacobus and the Jacobus “School.”
Our Digital Collections also include these additional genealogical journals: New England Historical and Genealogical Register, The Essex Genealogist, and The Virginia Genealogist.
