DGS Newsletter Indexes

Use the indexes below to find articles that were published in DGS newsletters from July 1978 to January 2004. Published regularly since 1978, the newsletters are packed with a variety of information, including society updates, events, research tips, genealogical stories, transcribed records, and area repositories.

Access to these indexes is available to all. Use them to find articles in the Newsletter Archive, with digitized copies of all of the more than 200 issues of DGS newsletters. Many thanks to long-time DGS member Lloyd Maier for compiling the indexes.

All three indexes are PDF documents. TIP: To search a PDF document, press Ctrl F, type in the word you want to search, and then press Enter.
