Value Added... Godfrey additions

We're adding
the American Genealogical Biographical Index to the Godfrey Scholar!

Now you can use the AGBI in our Scholar+database to find your ancestors in sources you may never hear about otherwise.
Described as "the best starting point to find any early New England settlers", the American Genealogical Biographical Index (AGBI) contains:
·  more than 4 million names from over 800 books from our original collection and
·  more than 2 million records from the Boston Transcript weekly genealogy column
Many of the books referenced in the AGBI are out of print and/or do not contain an index. We have digitized nearly all of these books and made them available on the Scholar.
Click here to read a genealogy blog entry about how the AGBI can help you locate obscure resources containing information about your ancestors.
It's easy to browse through the volumes, organized alphabetically by surname.  From the Scholar+ search page, click on AGBI in the Browse By Category list.  When you find a listing in the index, view it as a digital book on the Scholar or request a copy if it is a Boston Transcript reference.
