New England Historic Genealogical Society is America's founding genealogical organization. Established in 1845, NEHGS strives to educate, inspire, and connect people through family history discovery. From our research center in Boston, Massachusetts we provide family history services, develop original scholarship, lead transformative educational tours and programs, publish genealogies and essential handbooks, and deliver data-rich online resources to our members and friends around the world. And even though New England is in our name, we have resources—both online and at our library—and a staff of experts who can assist in nearly all aspects and areas of family history research. Learn about who we are, what we do, and how we can help you explore your families' unique place in history.
