State genealogical and historical societies have long been on the front lines of local genealogical research. As a service to our fellow genealogists, Harold Henderson and I have surveyed and compiled a list of currently active genealogical society journals. These journals publish everything from local record transcriptions and abstracts to multigenerational family histories.
Harold recently attended the “Writing and Publishing for Genealogists” course at the Institute for Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) at Samford University, coordinated by Thomas Jones, CG, the editor of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly. State genealogical society journals were discussed during this course. Harold mentioned this briefly in the post “IGHR Samford Day Four: states’ opportunity,” in his blog Midwestern Microhistory.
You can read the official announcement of this resource in Harold’s Midwestern Microhistory blog: “State and Regional Genealogy Journals: The List.”
To access this new resource, see the article “State & Regional Genealogical Society Journals” on my website at http://haitfamilyresearch.com/freeresources.aspx.
