How to find genealogy information in JSTOR's millions of articles from 2,000-plus academic journals.
JSTOR, an online collection of more than 7 million articles in 2,000-plus academic journals, has introduced a new subscription for individuals—and of particular interest to genealogists. Called JPASS, it provides access to about 1,500 of the journals. A one-month plan costs $19.50 and includes 10 article downloads; the yearly plan costs $199 and includes 120 downloads. Both plans allow unlimited access to read articles without downloading. JPASS makes it easier to use JSTOR, especially if your library doesn’t offer the service.
You can search JSTOR for free, and light users might get by with the free Register & Read plan, which lets you read up to three articles every two weeks. That includes almost 500,000 public-domain articles published in the United States before 1923 and in other countries before 1870.
