The Colonial Williamsburg Education Resource Library
I has been some time since I last wrote about the History.org website maintained by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. This website is a good example of the type of online resource that is unknown to genealogists in general and almost never referenced in genealogy conferences. I have found that nearly the entire genealogy community is woefully nearsighted when it comes to online and library resources.
Not only does Colonial Williamsburg have a significant number of online resources, it has an extensive library, the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Library.
If you are doing colonial research or looking at ancestors in Virginia, you need to be aware of the expanded opportunities that exist in public, university and private libraries.
Additionally, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation has expanded their educational opportunities.
See the following article for a more detailed explanation.
