I see that the final volume (7) was published.  (Congrats!).  As for the NEHGS searchable database, volumes 1 through 5 are available.  Is there any word on when we might see vol 6 added to the searchable database?

We don't have a definitive schedule yet, but I think the mid-2012 timeframe is a reasonable expectation for publication of this volume as a searchable database (Volume VI, Surnames R-S).

To expand on Sam's response, based on my own experience with the Society's site, books published by the Society generally seem to appear online around three years after publication. Books from other publishers may take longer to appear - The Settlers of the Beekman Patent currently runs through ten volumes in print (Vol. 10 was published in 2010), but the most recent volume online is Volume 7 (published in 2003).
