Quarterly Every-Name Index Update


Currently, each CCGS quarterly has an index in the issue by last name.  A project is underway by CCGS members to create an every-name index for all CCGS quarterlies.  Already volumes 1 and 2 have been indexed and the index is available under the "Research" menu option.
