The Genealogist is one of the most prestigious journals in the field of genealogy. It publishes high-quality genealogical articles including single-family studies, compiled genealogies, and articles that solve specific problems. It provides a forum for scholarly articles on diverse eras and populations which, for reasons such as length, may not fit in other publications, but which serve as models of genealogical scholarship and in-depth analysis in their various fields. Shorter articles are also welcome.

In 1980 The Genealogist was founded by Dr. Neil D. Thompson, FASG, who served as its editor for nearly two decades. In 1997 ownership of The Genealogist was transferred to The American Society of Genealogists, who have maintained a publication schedule of two issues per year, in the spring and fall, with each issue containing a minimum of 128 pages. From 1997 (vol. 11) to 2009 (vol. 23) The Genealogist was published and distributed by Picton Press. Since Vol. 24, No. 1 (Spring 2010), The Genealogist has been published and distributed directly by The American Society of Genealogists.
