DGS Journal Subject Index

The DGS Journal has been published since 1980. The tables below show subjects and articles covered in more than 3,000 pages of the journals.

How to use this page:

  • The Subject and Definitions table lists general topics with short definitions of the types of articles that appear in the particular subject area.
  • The Articles table groups articles by subject area. For each article, the Volume, Issue Number, and Page (Volume:Number:Page or V:N:P) of the journal is provided. Beginning with Volume 21, Number 1, page numbers in the DGS Journal Archive start with ‘S’, to denote that those journals are supplements to the First State Genealogist, DGS’s newsletter. However, in the Subject Index tables below, the page numbers appear as numerals without the ‘S’.
  • The V:N:P is then used to locate the journal of interest in the DGS Journal Archive, which is available to members. If you’re not a member, learn about the benefits of joining us at Join/Renew.
