The American Genealogical-Biographical Index to American Genealogical, Biographical, and Local History Materials

The American Genealogical-Biographical Index to American Genealogical, Biographical, and Local History Materials is a series of volumes indexing names found in various American genealogy-related sources, and listing where they are mentioned. This began as a followup series updating the 48-volume "American Genealogical Index" published between 1942 and 1952. (Hence, the prefaces sometimes refer to this work as the "second series"). It is published by the Godfrey Memorial Library in Middletown. CT.
