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 9–82. 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.

Penn. Genealogical Magazine, Vol. 31 - 35

(Updated Databases) Permanent link

Pennsylvania 79Volumes 31 to 35 (publication years 1979 to 1988) of The Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine are newly added online to, offering an additional 31,079  records. Now, volumes 1 to 35 are available to search. Additional volumes will be added throughout the year.

The Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine, published by the Philadelphia-based Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania since 1895, publishes family histories, original records, book reviews, and scholarly essays.

Early volumes (1895–1947) focus on southeastern Pennsylvania and neighboring areas of New Jersey and Delaware and publish original records and documents for the use of genealogical researchers; these documents include public records, election returns, births, deaths, marriages, court records, census reports, and immigration/emigration records. Our library also offers this resource in both hard-copy and CD-ROM format.

From 1948–1964, the journal primarily published biographies and family histories. In 1965, the journal expanded the focus of its scholarship to facilitate genealogical research beyond southeastern Pennsylvania and has maintained a more or less consistent balance between publishing compiled genealogies and original source materials.

From 2001 the journal has also published “genealogical summaries” to accompany all compiled genealogies and has further expanded its geographical scope to emphasize research on the European backgrounds of immigrants to Pennsylvania.

From 1895 to 1947, the magazine was called Publications of the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania.

We also offer a wide variety of other regional and national journals, including the The Mayflower Descendant, New England Historical and Genealogical Register, and The American Genealogist.
