"Founded in 1845, NEHGS is the country's leading resource for family history research."

"Our 8-story research center, located in downtown Boston, is one of the premier genealogy centers in the country, housing more than 200,000 books, 100,000 microforms, and more than 2 million manuscripts and family papers. In total, there are more than 20 million documents, artifacts, records, diaries, journals, books, photographs, family papers, bibles, and other items dating back more than four centuries. This incredible collection offers a wealth of information that is simply not available anywhere else"

"NEHGS offers extraordinary access to our extensive R. Stanton Avery Special Collections, featuring manuscript items from the fourteenth century to the present. This vast collection represents New England and other regions of the country. Some of the items in the collection include unpublished genealogies, Bible records, diaries and journals, 19th and 20th century photographs, cemetery, church, and town records, and other family papers."

"EHGS produces some of the most important publications in genealogy, including the member magazine American Ancestors, and the highly respected journal, New England Historical and Genealogical Register, published quarterly since 1847 and represents a premier collection of scholarly research. We also publish between eight and twelve books per year under our publishing imprint, Newbury Street Press."
