The Register - NEHGS Goes Green

Good news for those of us who prefer a paperless option to many of the journals and magazines that we receive!  The New England Historic Genealogical Society is now offering members the option of receiving The Register in pdf format.  Here is the text of an email I received this afternoon:

I am pleased to announce that NEHGS is now offering our members the option of viewing a paperless PDF edition of each issue of our flagship quarterly journal, The New England Historical and Genealogical Register. This fully-searchable PDF edition will be published on our website two to three weeks before the printed version is released. Older issues of the journal, from 1847 to 2005, are already available on www.NewEnglandAncestors.org.

This option will enable members, if they choose, to stop having the printed version mailed to them. By helping NEHGS reduce printing and mailing costs, we can save thousands of dollars a month, go "green," and better utilize precious resources.

If you are comfortable reading new issues of the Register online, or do not presently use it in your research, I urge you to help us reduce costs and go paperless by calling our Member Services team toll-free at 1-888-296-3447 or by email at membership@nehgs.org.

We are proud to offer new issues of our eminent journal in this increasingly popular PDF online format and are grateful to those who will make this cost-saving and environmentally friendly option their delivery preference going forward.
