In addition, societies may be able to put you in touch with:

  • other regional groups, libraries, museums, and government offices
  • professional researchers
  • newspapers in the location
  • individuals who are researching the same line

Of course, not all of the items above will be available from every group! Groups are limited by money, membership, and most importantly, involvement of the members. If a group is large but has little interest by the membership, you are likely to find less resources than a smaller, more active group.

Society newsletters can be a goldmine for researchers. Often the newsletters have extracts from cemeteries, articles on specific research topics, a list of new books in the society library, member queries, extracts from local history books, information about the people and area, book reviews, software reviews, helpful columns, computer news and assistance, and pointers to source materials.
