Parents' NG Collection ('35?-'05?) needs a home

We have a heap of NG's requiring a new home.

We do know that they appear to start with 1935 and go through 2005, with some duplicate issues and a number of bound volumes to boot.

There are also some 1918 issues, as you…

Do Abstract Articles Exist?

In the back of Volume 1, Number 1 (I just have a reprint), there is an abstract of the minutes beginning with February 17, 1888. Some of the later addresses from April and May were integrated into Volume 1, Number 1. But what about the earlier ones beginning in February? I don't see them listed in my 1888-1946 index. Were they perhaps printed by NGS as a one-subject paper, maybe in a limited run? I've never heard of them or seen them listed. Does anyone know about transcriptions of these…

Older National Geographic Magazines

Hi Everyone:  This is my first blog post so I may or may not do it right but here goes.  I have a lot of older NG magazines that our church school had and was wanting to throw them away so I decided to take them and see if I could raise some money for the school.  What I am looking for is someone that might want all of them and make a donation to the school and then I will get you a receipt for your donation that you can use on your income taxes.

The dates of the NG magazines start on…
