Genealogical Periodicals are an often-overlooked but extremely valuable resource!
The Topeka Genealogical Society Library collection includes more than 800 genealogical periodical titles, with most published by local and state-level genealogical societies across the United States. Most of the older issues are in hard-copy printed form, available for in-person browsing in our library. Some are avilable for check-out by current TGS members, allowing for in-home use.

In recent years, many genealogical societies have transitioned from distribution of printed publications to e-pubs. TGS exchanges publications in digital form with many of those organizations. TGS members may now enjoy in-library or remote access to the the digital periodicals that we obtain through exchanges with other genealogical societies. To access those publications, you will need to log in with your user ID and password. When you have done that, you should see links below that show the titles of our digital holdings. Click on the button with the title to open the folder and see the contents.
(Note - Titles are preceded by the abbreviation of the state in which they are published. Some titles have been shortened to fit the page template. "Genealogical Society" has been abbreviated as "GS")
