One of the periodicals that our library receives is American Ancestors by New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS). It is delivered quarterly and their two goals are to give their readers news about their organization and to have useful and engaging articles from a variety of perspectives on many facets of genealogical research.
Earlier this year, NEHGS launched a new research tool on their website https://www.americanancestors.org/ giving their users the ability to create online trees called American AncesTREES. You can build a tree for free on their website with a guest account or pay for an upgrade.
You can learn more about American AncesTREES in this NEHGS webinar at: https://youtu.be/NJlL-CowG4A.
Don’t forget that we subscribe to the NEHGS American Ancestors website for our library patrons! You can read more about that in an earlier blog post here: https://niagaracountygenealogy.wordpress.com/2019/05/02/american-ancestors/
