ProQuest CSA Partners with LexisNexis for Genealogical Data

ProQuest CSA, part of the Cambridge Information Group (, and LexisNexis ( are working together to add genealogical data from the LexisNexis U.S. Serial Set Digital Collection to HeritageQuest Online. The addition of Private Relief Actions and Memorials and Petitions from the Serial Set collection is designed to serve the growing genealogy and local history segment of the public library market. The two new data sets date from the Revolutionary War and complement other data sets within HeritageQuest Online.

The companies said that by incorporating the two sources from Serial Set within HeritageQuest, the value of government documents for family history research becomes much more evident and easier to search. Through a simple keyword search, researchers can access 480,000 pages of images contained within 150,000 U.S. government documents dating from 1789.

LexisNexis Serial Set is an ongoing collection of U.S. government publications compiled under the directive of Congress, capturing every aspect of American life from the early 19th century onward. It includes congressional reports and documents as well as executive agency and departmental reports ordered to be printed by Congress. HeritageQuest Online is a collection of unique material for genealogical and historical researchers, with coverage dating from the late 1700s.
