Update: the Journal of Genealogy and Family History

The Journal of Genealogy and Family History was first announced nearly a year ago. (See my earlier article about the announcement at: http://bit.ly/2DgPBs0.) Now the first edition has been published and work has begun on the second edition. The following announcement was written by the foks who produce the Journal of Genealogy and Family History:

Peer-reviewed journals are a rare thing in the world of genealogical publishing, though the USA has long been fortunate in having such journals specialising in local matters. The Journal of Genealogy and Family History was launched around Easter last year as a peer-reviewed, scholarly publication with a world-wide remit. It exists purely online. It is free to read and free to publish in. Offers of good quality papers are always welcomed and can be submitted through http://www.qualifiedgenealogists.org/ojs/index.php/JGFH.

The Journal has closed Volume 1 after its successful first nine months and is now editing papers for Volume 2.

You can find the individual papers by their DoIs (Digital Object Identifiers – a form of fixed URL). Those from the first volume are:
