At a reception it hosted tonight at the Federation of Genealogical Societies conference, Ancestry.com CEO Tim Sullivan and New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) marketing director Tom Champoux announced a new partnership.

NEHGS’ historical records, which Champoux says date back up to 400 years, will be part of Ancestry.com’s World Archives Project . The digitized records and their indexes will be accessible to subscribers of Ancestry.com or NewEnglandAncestors.org (NEHGS’ Web site). Update: The indexes will be free.

The records to be digitized are as yet unspecified. (Sullivan was tight-lipped in general due to Ancestry.com’s pending IPO filing with the SEC.)

We’ll keep keeping you updated with conference news.
