The Chicago Genealogical Society and the Newberry Library have created a new digital collection, the Chicago Genealogist. The online database contains images of the Chicago Genealogist, a quarterly journal published continuously since 1969 by the Chicago Genealogical Society. The easily searchable online collection is free to the public and contains volumes 1-39 (1969-2007).
This collection allows the researcher to search by keyword - a surname, church or school name, Chicago neighborhood, etc., in a way not possible previously. This cooperative effort is accessible through the CARLI (Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois) Digital Collections site, where it is one of several collections of interest to genealogists.
