Prologue magazine is a quarterly publication of the National Archives and Record Administration (NARA). Along with the many historical events covered in the publication, there is a monthly feature called Genealogy Notes in every issue. Genealogy Notes was published for the first time in the summer of 1989 and has covered many topics over the years.
I have listed some sample article titles from recent Genealogy Notes below.
v.45: no. 3/4 2013 – Ancestors from the West Indies: A Historical and Genealogical Overview of Afro-Caribbean Immigration, 1900-1930s
v.45: no. 2 2013- “We’re still alive today” A captured Japanese Diary from the Pacific Theater
v.43: no. 3 2011 – Leaving the Army During Mr. Madison’s War: Certificates of Discharge for the War of 1812
v. 42: no. 2 2010 – 68,937 and Counting: Searching Inmate Case Files from the U.S. Penitentiary at Leavenworth, Kansas.
Some articles may be read online or the print issues are available in the Government Documents Department at Forsyth Library. There is also at least a partial online index to the online Genealogy Notes available.
