Links to High Quality Digital Content for Local & Family History Research on Delmarva

Since there is an enormous, rapidly growing body of research information available on the web, there is a need for a curated landing page, a place in the public commons on the net, to help someone digging into the past on the Delmarva Peninsula.  This opportunity to help researchers is something I encounter often during public lectures and courses as I get questions about how to find quality e-information. As a result, I have beta tested some curated social media products and apps, such as http://www.learnist.com and http://www.liiist.com.

Based on that experience, I have decided that the best way to point someone to valuable e-resources is to simply create a series of web pages.  Thus I have established this series of pages, which focuses on linking to quality family and local history research repositories   This new section of my website provides links to digital repositories, which have richly organized information and provide access to collections of quality resources for family and local history research.

Divided into major regions on the Peninsula, select your region of interest and on the page you will find topical headings to direct you to rich content. The pages will concentrate on linking to high quality digital repositories of online data to help local and family history researchers.

Hopefully this helps you with your study of the past. If you have suggestions for additions or how to improve the product, email me. I will continue to monitor the web and e-news outlets for developments, which should be added to the pages and add them as they come up, in order to help all of us with research in the region.
