Amongst the offerings are the “Gentleman’s Magazine” 1731 – 1750 and “Notes & Queries” 1849 – 1869.

Both of these publications have plenty to interest the family historian. The Gentleman’s Magazine has an index for each volume (one volume per year) and Notes & Queries also has a yearly index. I think to get the best out of these publications you need to browse through a volume to see how things are laid out and then dive into some research. A very wide range of subjects are covered in each edition including many announcements of births, marriages & deaths.

Take a look.
