Subtitles from the NGSQ “Genealogical Gleanings” Series

In last month’s issue, I wrote about the NGSQ online index, its limitations, and how best to use it. Among the examples of searches I discussed was author Peter Wilson Coldham and his 52 installments of the “Genealogical Gleanings in England” series published in NGSQ between 1971 and 1993. I also mentioned that this massive series was stuffed with useful subtitles, only a tiny handful of which are included in the article titles that can be searched in the online index. So in the absence of an every-name index, how can members really use that series?

This article serves as a key to Coldham’s series as well as David Dobson’s similar but smaller series, “Genealogical Gleanings from Scotland,” and their co-authored single installment, “Genealogical Gleanings in the British Isles.” What follows below are the more than 400 subtitles included in the series, along with volume and page numbers, that will serve as a kind of finding aid until an every-name index is created.
