Societies and organizations in Chile publish genealogical periodicals, usually in Spanish. Much of their content is devoted to compiled genealogies and histories of native families. They also are an excellent place to publish queries or advertisements about your family history research. Some examples are:
- Revista de estudios históricos:órgano oficial del Instituto Chileno de Investigaciones Genealógicas(Magazine of Historical Studies). Santiago, Chile: Imprenta Chile, 1949–. (FHL book 983 D25r; films 0897024, 0973048, 1609197.)
- Revista chilena de historia y geografía: órgano de la Sociedad Chilena de Historia y Geografía y el Archivo Nacional (Chilean Magazine of History and Geography: Organ of the Chilean Society of History and Geography and the National Archive). Santiago, Chile : Imprenta Universitaria, 1911–. (FHL book 983 B2re.)
Copies of periodicals are available from the local societies that publish them. Major archives with genealogical collections will have copies of many periodicals, especially those representing the area they serve.
