New ResourceóGale Genealogy Connect

Gale, part of Cengage Learning, partnered with Genealogical.com to launch a new online resource for genealogists—Gale Genealogy Connect. Focusing on the “how to” of genealogical research, this new resource serves as a complement to popular fact, date, and people-based genealogy resources already on the market.

Sourced from the publications of Genealogical.com, parent company for Genealogical Publishing Company and Clearfield Company, Gale Genealogy Connect features more than 550 reference works at release (formerly only available in print or CD-ROM) on a stand-alone ebook platform, with a goal of growing the collection to nearly 1,500 works. The content covers a wide range of topics such as genealogy research basics, genealogy methods and sources, colonial genealogy, immigration, royal and Native American ancestry. Gale Genealogy Connect serves both novice and advanced researchers—beginners will learn proper research methods and how to define and organize goals, while powerful search features help advanced researchers make connections among data to uncover a meaningful story behind their family tree.

“With Gale Genealogy Connect we are opening up a treasure chest of resources for current and future genealogists as this is the first time much of this information is available in an online, searchable database,” said Gerald Sawchuk, publisher for public library solutions at Gale. “Instead of spending countless hours scouring a book for mention of a family name, users can quickly search across multiple information sources, making the research experience much more efficient and exciting.”

Additional features of Gale Genealogy Connect include the following:

  • An engaging user interface with translation into 38 languages
  • Unlimited and simultaneous 24/7 access
  • Seamless cross-searching across all Gale Genealogy Connect collections
  • Ability to print, save, email, or share articles
  • Multipage PDF viewing recreating the book experience

Content is divided into six convenient bundles, giving libraries a variety of purchase and subscription options to meet their needs.
