The Internet Archive

I was surprised at the recent Ottawa Branch OGS Genealogy Week to find out that several people didn`t know about the Internet Archive. I gave a quick demo and determined to do a blog posting.

Now Dick Eastman has a recent post that saves me the task - http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2010/07/free-genealogy-books-on-the-internet-archive.html. The only thing to add is that the University of Toronto has also added many digitized books, many of them Canadian.

Taneya Koonce also wrote a good post about the Internet Archive today, especially regarding compiled service records of Civil War veterans: Colored Troops.

Yes, not all of us have heard of the Internet Archive. Thanks for posting it. I expect it can open up a whole new world! Anne S.
