At the Library: Magazines and Journals

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Looking for information about new ideas in genealogy?
Looking for reviews of genealogy books and tools?
Looking for something shorter than a book?

The magazines and journals in our Periodicals collection might just be exactly what you’re looking for.

The OGS Provincial Library collects genealogy magazines, journals and newsletters from around the world to bring the genealogy news to you.

Some of them are commercial magazines. They tend to address the latest genealogical news and trends, review books and genealogy tools, and share tips as well as interesting feature stories about the genealogical community.

Some of them are society journals and newsletters. Like the OGS journal Families, many other genealogical societies publish quarterly journals and newsletters full of research, reviews and society news. We collect journals and newsletters from genealogical societies and family associations from across Canada and around the world.

So the next time you’re looking for a resource, pay a visit to our Periodicals catalogue and find a journal or magazine to read. It just might have the information you need.
