Read Genealogy Periodicals in an Unlikely Database
May 20, 2013
The Midwest Genealogy Center has a very large selection of print (hard) copies of genealogy periodicals, necessitating a trip to the Library to read them. Two of my favorites are Internet Genealogy and Family Chronicle, and I am always delighted when the next new issue arrives here. Each issue of Internet Genealogy is full of web links you can glean genealogy information from. Family Chronicle is a good periodical to read that provides instructions for searching a wide variety of genealogical subjects and places.
But here is good news for staying current right from your home computer or tablet, without having to make a trip to the MGC to see these periodicals, plus a few others. You can access them in the Online Resources section of the MCPL website using the Hobbies and Crafts Reference Center.
If you click on "publication" at the top left and search "genealogy" by subject and description, you can choose the periodical title and a list of the most current issue’s articles will appear.
Once you see an article you want to read, click on the "PDF Full Text" link and an image copy of the article as it is printed in the periodical will pop up.
So, prop your feet up and enjoy reading some genealogy articles without leaving home.
