Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788422340, CD-ROM)The mass of valuable reference material published in genealogical periodicals each year is quite astounding, but it is difficult to search without a comprehensive index. Genealogical Periodical Annual Index has been providing a comprehensive surname, locality, and topical index to over 300 major English-language genealogical periodicals for the past forty years. This CD-ROM includes the ten volumes of GPAI published over the past decade. Since GPAI indexes book and CD reviews, as well as all substantive periodical articles, it is an important key to the genealogical literature that can be utilized by all genealogical and historical researchers. The citations in GPAI are of three basic types: surname, locality, and topical. Bible records, family records, and genealogies are indexed under the name of the male progenitor. The citation gives his date of birth or some other vital statistic if possible, identifies his wives, and indicates the places the family lived. Record abstracts are indexed under the appropriate geographical headings, such as state, county, town. Articles which do not fit under the foregoing headings are indexed under the appropriate topical heading such as African American (and other ethnic groups), Civil War (and other wars), computer genealogy, immigration, medical, methodology (including all kinds of how-to subjects). Quakers (and other religious groups), etc. With the new electronic search capability, all kinds of searches are now much easier. All the citations include a description of the type of record, i.e., Bible record, genealogy, book review, newspaper abstracts, city directory, obituary, military records, school records, census records, etc. The citation also identifies the periodical, volume, issue, and page number where the article begins. A directory of the periodicals indexed is provided, so the researcher can acquire copies of articles of interest.
