Today we are announcing a new database: The Genealogical Advertiser. The Genealogical Advertiser was a quarterly magazine published from March 1898 to 1901 by Lucy Hall Greenlaw in Cambridge Mass.

This publication produced a variety of useful content including; local vital record extracts, probate records, family histories, and genealogical book reviews.

All the published volumes are included in this database. The database contains approximately 839 pages and over 20,000 searchable names. The indexing for this database includes full names, Publication year (not the year of the record), and article titles and authors. The Vermont Genealogy database is part of the Journals & Periodicals category, and results are included in that category search page.

This update is made possible by the efforts of our volunteers: David Anderson, Kim Bonner, Angela Napolitano, and Ross Weaver. If you have some time and would like to get involved in the database digitization and indexing process please contact Rachel Adams, Database Services Volunteer Coordinator via email at
