Most genealogical and historical societies and organizations in Mexico publish periodicals, whose content is largely devoted to compiled genealogies of native families and articles of local interest. In addition, excellent state and regional publications are also available, such as:
- Boletín del Archivo General de la Nación (Bulletin of the General Archive of the Nation). Mexico, D.F. (FHL book 972 B2bo ser. 2.)
Copies of periodicals are available from the local agencies that publish them. Major archives with genealogical collections have copies of some periodicals, particularly those representing the area they serve.
