NGS Magazine

Deb Cyprych, Editor

NGS Magazine is much more than a member news source. Each issue is chock-full of informative articles that show and tell readers how to do effective genealogical research.

Articles appeal to a variety of interests and skill levels while delivering content useful to all. Topics include genealogical records, collections, and repositories; research techniques and methodologies; databases; case studies; and genealogical problem-solving techniques. Regular columns discuss National Archives records, technology, genetic genealogy, and reference topics.

From NGS Magazine members learn important news about the annual NGS Family History Conference and research trips, NGS awards and competitions, what's new with the organization, and other news in the genealogical community.
