The Blaisdell Papers have been published by
the Blaisdell Family National Association (BFNA) at least twice a
year since 1935, making it the fifth oldest, continuously
published family journal in the US.
Blaisdell Papers document the genealogy, history, news
items, accomplishments, births, marriages, anniversaries, deaths
and obituaries of Blaisdell family members. These stories are a
reflection of our nationís cultural and genealogical heritage.
Published in June and December, each issue now averages 84 pages
(on acid free paper for longer shelf life) with an average of 40
black and white photos per issue. Since 1935 there have been
eleven volunteer Editors.
An index is prepared for each five-year volume (10 issues).
Blaisdell Papers will be sent to any genealogical
library or historical society who requests to be put on the
mailing list. Currently, 38 leading genealogical libraries are
receiving Blaisdell Papers.
Blaisdell Papers earliest issues, 1935 Ė 1985, are
available on DVD (2 disks) or CD-ROM (11 disks) and are fully
searchable in PDF format. Cost: $30 per set.
