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.
They document the genealogy, history, news items, accomplishments, births, marriages, anniversaries, deaths and obituaries of Blaisdell family members. These stories are a reflection of our nation’s 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 12 volunteer editors.
The Blaisdell Papers will be sent to any genealogical library or historical society requesting a subscription. Currently 38 leading genealogical libraries are receiving Blaisdell Papers.
Subscription to the Blaisdell Papers is $15 per year which automatically conveys BFNA membership to the subscriber. Gift memberships are $12 per year.
