The New England Historic Genealogical Society (or NEHGS for short) is considered the oldest genealogical society in the United States; having been founded in 1845.

They publish the New England Historical and Genealogical Register (NEHGR) quarterly — a journal of refereed articles on discoveries and research. Their library at the headquarters in Boston is a trove of research notes and papers from previous genealogists. Not to mention their own collection of donated works.
