Masonic Periodicals

This article was posted in Essex Resources, Miscellaneous.

A new on-line archive may be of interest for late 19th century research: Masonic publications.
http://www.masonicperiodicals.org/

The archive consists of periodicals held at the Library and Museum of Freemasonry, London. Covering the period between the late 18th and early 20th centuries, it currently consists of 75,000 pages.

Not the easiest site to navigate, and a quick look at sample articles shows that most names are written as initials surname, or surname initials, which could make things difficult. However, looks a useful resource if one has hints of possible Freemason in your family tree.

As a short cut I would try this link.
