Share the Wealth - Helpful Websites

I thought I would share a few finds from around the world-wide web with you.  Share the wealth - what links have you found?  Leave a comment to let others know (email subscribers - click title of article for Comment link).

The Legal Genealogist - Attorney and genealogist Judy G. Russell helps people understand the interplay between genealogy and the law.  Her article about the Federal Land Primer was particularly interesting to me.

The California Digital  Newspaper Collection  contains over 400,000 pages of significant historical California newspapers published from 1846-1922, including the first California newspaper, the Californian, and the first daily California newspaper, the Daily Alta California. It also contains issues of several current California newspapers that are part of a pilot project to preserve and provide access to contemporary papers.  I bird-walked my way through the Los Angeles Herald for hours looking for my many California ancestors.  Thanks to Root Cellar member Lois Shumaker for submitting the link to this website.

Center for Bibliographical Studies and Research  Current programs include English Short-Title Catalog, California Newspaper Project, California Digital Newspaper Project, Latin American Project, and California Newspaper Microfilm Archive.
