The Path to Digital Libraries and Archives by Cyndi Ingle
Today every nook and cranny of the Internet is filled with hidden gems in digital library and archive collections. Often part of a special project or a larger web site, these collections aren't always easy to find and explore. We will discuss methods for locating them and, once found, methods for using them to answer specific research questions.

Finding and Using Manuscript and Special Collections Repositories
Monday, February 15
Finding and Using Manuscript and Special Collections Repositories  (Meetings)
6:45 pm to 9:00 pm
Online Zoom meeting - See registration Link
So you have checked census, probate, church, naturalization, and other records. The obituaries, marriage, birth, and death records have also been located. Yet, you still have too many blank spaces on your family group sheets. You still don’t have enough of the story about some ancestors to really know who they were. Your next step might be using manuscripts and checking out special collections in various repositories. The treasures which might be found are too often neglected. Should you check in the ancestral localities? Of course, but manuscripts may end up anywhere. Fortunately more and more finding aids are available to help us find a manuscript which might pertain to an ancestral locality or person many states away from where they lived. These collections also may yield you some humorous or poignant finds.
