Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about the Periodical Source Index (PERSI). This index to periodicals useful to genealogists was originally created by the Allen County Public Library and published in print and fiche formats. Now, genealogists can access the index online at FindMyPast! Join us as we discuss what you might find in the index and how the articles might be of use to you. Update 2022: The Allen County Public Library’s Genealogy Center now hosts the Periodical Source Index at the following URL: https://www.genealogycenter.info/persi/.
