The American Genealogist: Volume 88 now available

Hilo Bay, Joseph Nāwahī, from the collection of the Hawaiian Mission Houses Historic Site and Archives. The Tanaka family profiled in Darcie Hind Posz’s article “Tanaka and Ishihara Families of Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan and Papaaloa, Hilo, Hawaii” lived in the Hilo area. The artist Joseph Nāwahī was an accomplished Hawaiian polititian.

Today we’ve added Volume 88 (2016) to The American Genealogist database. This update adds over 300 pages and 6,500 searchable names.

Founded in 1922 by Donald Lines Jacobus, The American Genealogist (TAG) has been published quarterly and represents an important body of scholarly research covering the breadth of the United States. TAG is edited by a quartet of NEHGS members: Editor and publisher, Nathaniel Lane Taylor, FASG; coeditors Roger D. Joslyn, FASG and Joseph C. Anderson II, FASG, who is also editor of The Maine Genealogist; and consulting editor, David L. Greene, FASG. These distinguished genealogists, along with dozens of highly-regarded contributors, uphold and advance the standards for genealogical scholarship so carefully articulated by Jacobus and the Jacobus “School.”

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 volunteer David Anderson. If you are interested in getting involved in the database digitization and indexing process please contact Rachel Adams, Database Services Volunteer Coordinator via email at
The entire run of The American Genealogist is available at the NEHGS Boston research library, call number F104.N6 A6.
