Genealogy News Corral: March 16-20

By Diane Haddad

  • The New England Historic Genealogical Society has updated its quarterly journal with a new design and a broader editorial focus. The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, appearing this week in its 673rd issue, now features a full-color cover with a contents listing and a modernized interior design. The supplemental American Ancestors Journal will be integrated into the Register to give it a national and international scope, while still retaining an emphasis on New England, New York State, and out-migrations from New England.
  • Saturday, March 28, the Civil War Trust will hold its 19th annual Park Day, when volunteers gather to clean up historic battlefield sites across the country. This is the first year the cleanup effort will include both Civil War and Revolutionary War sites. Details such as event times and registration procedures vary by the cleanup site.
