Vital Records from the New England Historical and Genealogical Register: Volume 23 updated

By |

Volume 23, page 107a, showing a handwritten family tree and crest pertaining to the Appleton family

Today we are re-releasing Volume 23 (1869) in Vital Records from the New England Historical and Genealogical Register. This is part of our on-going, in-depth re-indexing project that aims to accurately capture all the genealogical data available in this scholarly journal. This update includes over 11,200 records and 23,600 searchable names and has about nine times the number of records previously indexed in this volume.

This ongoing project will unlock the value of all the information captured in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register since the first publication in 1847. We are reviewing every published article and extracting a broad set of previously unavailable records for the articles that are genealogical in nature. So, in addition to birth, marriage, and death records there are now new records including: residences, immigration, military records, church dismissals, and more. The indexing in this effort includes spouses, parents, and locations.

Users of American AncesTREES will also benefit by being able to get hints from the newly indexed volumes in their family trees.

This update is made possible through the work of our volunteers: Jan Lundquist, Elaine Wood, Peg Camp, Renda Smith, Melaine Nelson, Kathleen Oberly, Bruce McKeeman, Ida Nystrom, Rosemary Durica, Pam Hugie, Fran Danico, Karen Buchinger, Bill Kerrigan, Gail Wine, Joan Koesterherm, Nina Manno, Donna McClure, Rich Wood, Phyllis Doucette, Carol Farrington, Linda Mathew, Nancy Johnson, Kay Sencabaugh, David Fredette, Robyn Choate, Jane Himmel, Janet Essency, Pat Dalpiaz, Rick Lagueux, Val Abrahamsen, Mara Witzling and Patricia Ryburn.

If you would like to become part of the team working on this rewarding project to revamp the index to the NEHGS Register, please contact Rachel Adams, Database Services Volunteer Coordinator via email at rachel.adams@nehgs.org.

Published quarterly since 1847, The New England Historical and Genealogical Register is the the oldest journal in the field. The Register has featured articles on a wide variety of topics since its inception, including vital records, church records, tax records, land and probate records, cemetery transcriptions, obituaries, and historical essays. Authoritative compiled genealogies have been the centerpiece of the Register for more than 150 years. Thousands of New England families have been treated in the pages of the journal and many more are referenced in incidental ways throughout. These articles may range from short pieces correcting errors in print or solving unusual problems to larger treatments that reveal family origins or present multiple generations of a family.
