National Genealogical Society – Providing Free Access to NGS Monthly Archives through 31 July 2020 – Link
From NGS:  During this time when so many Americans must stay at home, the National Genealogical Society (NGS) is offering non-members free access to five years of NGS Monthly.  Starting immediately through 31 July 2020, everyone interested in family history can read insightful articles in our digital publication archive.  — A couple articles that might be of interest:  2019 October issue, ‘Land Evidences and Geographic Clues:  Mapping As a Research Tool’ — 2020 February issue, ‘The Creation of Leap Year and Its Effects on Genealogy’ gave a nod to the leap year and used the opportunity to review how calendars have changed over the centuries.


Our focus is on Scott County’s place in history as the real Gateway to the West and the histories of the persons who came here. And, our intention is to provide applicable articles and records. Some will be available to the general public. Some will be restricted to SCIGS members who log into this website.
