Roxanne Moore Saucier has a good article in the Bangor Daily News (Maine), Ancestors magazine a rich resource, that covers many of the resources available through a membership in the New England Historic Genealogical Society, especially their publication, New England Ancestors.
Excerpt from the article:
Let’s not overlook the society’s publications, including the popular magazine New England Ancestors. I always find something useful in the New England Online column by David Allen Lambert.
The spring issue points out the National Soldiers Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers in Togus, telling us that microfilm records for 1866-1934 are available at the National Archives branch in Waltham, Mass. Records may also be rented through Family History Centers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, such as the center on Grandview Avenue and Essex Street in Bangor. (The Family History Library catalog is online at www.familysearch.org.)
