More on “Browsing the Archives”

by Kay Haviland Freilich, CG, CGL

Editor's note: The following post comes in response to the article posted 3 August 2010 and provides further information of interest to many readers.

First of all, I’d like to thank Toby Webb for his kind words about “Genealogical Research in Pennsylvania” that was published in NGSQ. It’s always nice to hear that one’s work has been useful to another researcher.

Toby and other UpFront readers might be interested in knowing that NGS published an expanded and updated version of the article in 2007 as Research in Pennsylvania, one of the Research in the States series. This new edition includes additional material, web sites, and information about online sources and records. It is available in a print edition or as a downloadable PDF file from the NGS Bookstore.

Other states are also covered in the series. Some have previously appeared in the Quarterly, some are new works. The authors all specialize in research in the state they write about. Current titles cover Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia, and they also are available as either print or PDF versions.

Research in the States in an ongoing series. Additional titles are in the works and others are planned. Readers might want to watch for announcements of new releases on the NGS web site and other publications.
