Free access to the Great Migration Newsletter

Have you read the Great Migration Newsletter?

The New England Historic Genealogical Society is offering free access to the most recent version of their Great Migration Newsletter.

Although the Great Migration Newsletter is now in its eighteenth year, we find many NEHGS members are not familiar with it. To remedy this situation, we are providing free access to the January-March 2009 issue.

The Newsletter complements the individual Great Migration sketches, and addresses the broad issues that are key to understanding the lives and times of New England’s first immigrants. The Newsletter is able to go beyond the scope of the individual sketches in the Great Migration books to examine the settlement of early New England towns; migration patterns; seventeenth-century passenger lists; church records; land records; and much more.

Please consider supporting the Great Migration Study Project by subscribing to the print or online version of the Newsletter.

A professionally printed copy of the Newsletter will be delivered to your home four times during the year, at a cost of $20 for a one-year subscription or $36 for a two-year subscription.

Online subscriptions to the Great Migration Newsletter are also available, at a cost of $10 for a one-year subscription or $18 for a two-year subscription. Online subscribers will be able to access the four issues of Volume 18, one posted each quarter (beginning in January 2009), and the Great Migration Newsletter Online Archive, which contains volumes 11 through 17, plus bonus sketches not yet available in print.

To subscribe, please visit or call Member Services at 1-888-296-3447.
