PERSI (PERiodical Source Index) - Allen County Library, Indiana
PERSI (PERiodical Source Index) is an index to articles in genealogical periodicals (magazines and journals.)
PERSI does not index every name in an article, but concentrates on major subjects: surnames, places, events. For example, a transcription of “marriage records from Green County, Wisconsin” would be indexed for Green County, Wisconsin, but not for the individual names of the brides and grooms. An article about the Broadhurst family, with multiple lines of descendants with different surnames, would only be indexed for Broadhurst.
You may search by Surnames, or by places, with major place categories (United States, Canada, British Isles, Other Countries) further subdivided by drop-down menus. “Research Techniques searches for articles about research techniques for a variety of topics, primarily record categories such as Cemeteries, Deeds, Probate Records, etc. There is also an “Article Title Keyword” search option, which appears to include keywords identified by the indexers.
