The Chicago Genealogical Society and the Newberry are pleased to announce a new digital collection, the Chicago Genealogist. The Chicago Genealogist is a quarterly journal published continuously since 1969 by the Chicago Genealogical Society.

The easily searchable online collection is free to the public and contains volumes 1-39 (1969-2007). Although a useful listing of the contents of the quarterly is available on the society’s website and it has been indexed in PERSI, this collection allows the researcher to search by keyword - a surname, church or school name, Chicago neighborhood, etc., in a way not possible previously. The collection is another valuable resource for the Chicago researcher’s toolbox.  

This cooperative effort is accessible through the CARLI (Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois) Digital Collections site, where it is one of several collections of interest to genealogists.  

All of the images in the Chicago Genealogist have been made available courtesy of the society and all rights are reserved by the Chicago Genealogical Society. Information about requesting reproductions is on the collection website.

Newer issues are available through membership in the Chicago Genealogical Society. A complete print collection is available at the Newberry.
