Sundays in October: Free Select Database on

By Diane Haddad

To celebrate Family History Month in October, the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) is offering a free database on its website each Sunday. On Oct. 18, you can search the Great Migration Begins, documenting immigrants to New England between 1620 and 1633; and on Oct. 25, search Early Families of New England, summarizing 17th-century New England families.

You must start a free guest registration on to take advantage of these free database offers.

In addition, on Fridays in October, visit NEHGS on Facebook for giveaways, and if you’re in Boston, the NEHGS research library is offering free admission every Wednesday this month.
