Talk:Periodical Source Index (PERSI)Edit This Page

From FamilySearch Wiki

Concern about outdated details

I am concerned that some details in this article are outdated and therefore either misleading, inaccurate, or irrelevant.  I have contact ACPL directly for info, and based on that, I believe HeritageQuest is the way to access PERSI.  I have read several articles that indicate Ancestry.com has a version of PERSI, but that it is "old" (not updated for many years).  Since HeritageQuest includes periodicals up to 2007 and parts of 2008, why direct people to a less-complete index?  Also, many (most?) people have access to HeritageQuest from home using their local public library card.  Many (most?) Family History Centers do not have access to HeritageQuest.  So the section on finding a Family History Center seems both irrelevant and misleading.  (I'd rather not have patrons showing up expecting to have access to PERSI at our FHC.)  Anyone have a definitive source for all things PERSI?

Article has been updated to indicate PERSI is no longer available on Ancestry.com, to encourage patrons to use HeritageQuest and to alert them to the future launching of an improved PERSI on Findmypast.  The reference to Ancesty.com was left as a historical account.  Parrisl 09:35, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
