Everything you need to know about PERSI

The Periodical Source Index (PERSI), created by the Allen County Public Library, is an ambitious initiative to obtain and index all genealogy and local history periodicals in America and beyond. As with most indexes, the one drawback is that you need to find hard copies of the articles – which is actually pretty easy – but not as expedient as we are used to in this digital age.

Now, Findmypast is leading a coalition of organizations dedicated to transforming PERSI into more than just an index. We’re working to bring digital images of key periodicals online so you can view them from the web.
