New England Historic Genealogical Society

Founded in 1845, the Society has been a pioneer in the study of the region's family history for more than a century and a half. Its vast collection of genealogies, local histories, and manuscripts—200,000 volumes, 20,000 microfilms, and 3,500 linear feet of manuscripts—make it an essential resource for scholars interested in the social and demographic history of New England.
