Special Researcher Access

Special Researchers receive access to all of the digitized manuscript collections from the American Jewish Historical Society — New England Archives at the Jewish Heritage Center, available from NEHGS Digital Collections. In addition, Special Researchers can also view all of the resources available to Guest members, including free databases on AmericanAncestors.org, webinars, and other genealogical resources.

On a case-by-case basis, scholars may be granted Special Researcher accounts to access restricted items in NEHGS Digital Collections from the R. Stanton Avery Special Collections and NEHGS Research Library.
