Why not contact NEHGS via their website for assistence?
This serves two purposes:
1 -- you get good help
2 -- they learn that it is apparently not easy to find
the free articles so they will improve the website
(apparently they are keen on improving it according
to the latest mag)
It's always better to contact the organization in question
for assistence. Well unless its ****** (number of websites
whose names I preceded with curses and began to type in but
deleted to avoid lawsuits and bad karma).
Anyway I'm a member so I never pay attention to these things.
However sometimes searches will have FREE in front of them
from the search page. Also I think you want this section:
SCROOOLLLL DOOOWNNN -- right lower corner??
(So sorry, can't do lookups for anyone unless they would
clean my house and my car for me as I'm very busy and

not on a tab like the other areas but over on the left where
I never have to go to login. Non-orthogonal design flaw

spend my time in the Library tab. It's a cosmic library for
Scotch Irish research -- LOTSA books in VA and SC and NC
and PA and MD etc...AND you can quickly find any who
strayed into New England and dropped a few kids in various
New England towns as they searched for a place with no
I sure wish I could "get in" to Boston (A Banned Place for
most of us for the next week and then I'm off to PA) for
Boyd's nutshell talk on the genealogy of the presidential
contenders. He also has some talks coming up on the most
inbred Presidents. (No wonder we got problems in the USA:
our presidents are inbred as all their ancsetors came from

>True...but I was referring to the NEHGS website where there are articles listed (that I don't know how to acess) and books for sale (which are easily accessed by all). Sorry for not making that clear in my initial message.
