We are very happy to have added Volume 33, covering the year 2013, to the genealogical journal The Essex Genealogist. This update contains over 200 pages and 2,400 searchable names.

The leading publication for genealogical research in Essex County, Massachusetts, this quarterly journal has been published since 1981 by The Essex Society of Genealogists (founded in 1975). Within the pages of this journal are selections of cemetery transcriptions, bible records, vital and church records relating to families from Essex County, Massachusetts. The Essex Genealogist has had published numerous Ahnentafel’s (Ancestor Tables) of the ancestry of their members, as well as verbatim transcriptions of lectures over the years. This journal continues to serve those researching Essex County families with valuable resources now entering nearly four decades in print.

The indexing for these records includes full names, Publication year (not the year of the record), and article titles and authors.

This update is made possible by the efforts of our volunteers David Anderson and Meghan McDonagh. If you would like to get involved in the database digitization and indexing process, or just find out more, please contact Rachel Adams, Database Services Volunteer Coordinator via email at
