Family History Month

Celebrate National Family History Month throughout October with American Ancestors by
New England Historic Genealogical Society as we offer you 31 Days and 31 Ways to help
you discover MORE about your family's history.

As America’s founding genealogical organization (established in 1845), we help genealogists of all skill levels improve their knowledge and understanding of their family and its place in history. Although our name says New England, we provide expertise and research in nearly all aspects of family history, from 17th-century colonial New England through twentieth-century immigration research.

FREE Wednesdays: October 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th, Open: 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM

Join us in the Library for FREE every Wednesday in October to advance your family history research. Meet our genealogy experts and learn about the millions of resources from around the world in our collection that will help you with your family history. Learn more about visiting NEHGS.
