Accessible Archives Offers Discount to FGS Member Societies

Malvern, PA (October 5, 2010)

Accessible Archives, Inc., an electronic publisher of primary source full-text historical databases, has announced the upcoming inclusion of materials from the six New England states to its current series, American County Histories to 1900. The additional information from these states will complement that contained in the original county collection of Mid-Atlantic states: Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. This makes Accessible Archives the primary source for County History materials.

Detailed coverage of local history, geology, geography, weather, family histories, health and vital statistics and lists of local participants in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, is included. Information concerning government, the medical and legal professions, churches and ministers, industry and manufacturing, banking and insurance, schools and teachers, noted celebrations, fire departments and associations, cemeteries, transportation, roads and bridges, public officials and legislators, and many additional subject areas also may be researched.

Accessible Archives, Inc., also has signed an agreement with the University of Iowa to preserve in digital format a number of primary source publications from the Civil War era. Accessible Archives, Inc., has an extensive Civil War collection and is adding primary source content that consists of memoirs, pamphlets, and regimental histories from the Civil War holdings at the University of Iowa. The newly-added materials provide battle perspectives from both soldiers and generals, with additional accounts of Midwest action. Iowa provided more troops per capita than any other Union state, and these writings reflect the experiences of Iowa soldiers as they fought in nearly all the campaigns and major battles throughout the war years. The Second, 14th, 15th, Twentieth, Twenty-first and 22nd Iowa Infantry Brigades are represented here, along with the 2nd Iowa Cavalry and Crocker's Iowa Brigade. This compliments the Civil War Newspaper Collection, Soldier’s Perspective, General’s Perspective and Midwestern Perspective.
