The New England Historical and Genealogical Register

This is an excellent resource for researching early New England families. and it's contributors have made it possible for you to easily read 50-years of their publications online (for free) and I've made finding the information you need even easier (still free)!


First, find the name in the index by clicking on the first letter of the last name you are researching. This will take you to the corresponding section of the index where you can browse the alphabetized list for the surname. If you see any matches, note the volume and page number. (See example below).  Write down the numbers and then return here to find the volume(s) you need.
