Websites & Resources
- JSTOR – Resource for academic articles. Some earlier journals are accessible for free. For others, you will need to log in through a subscribing library. The nice thing is, you can conduct your searches at home to see if there are any articles of interest, before you head to the library. Thanks to Josh for explaining why and how to use this.
- Books We Own – "Books We Own is a list of resources owned/accessed by individuals who are willing to look up genealogical information and e-mail or snail mail it to others who request it. This is a free service - volunteers may ask for reimbursement of copies and postage if information is provided via snail-mail." Don’t know how I missed this all these years!
