And more libraries than I ever knew existed
Library's hold lots of secrets, here is an example of a newspaper advertisement from Ireland I found on the Mitchel Library site:
Searching on this site led me to "The Genealogists Internet by Peter Christian - a great resource which lists LOTS of websites. I have put a link on the right of this page under Internet Sites, take a look when you have a bit of time. Mostly it is UK centred.
The NSW State Library has lots of e-books as well, and it is easy to join up. So happy hunting in the library. Did you know the Library has a fantastic list of Lifelong Learning courses? Several are devoted to genealogy research. I've just booked into "Reading Yesterday's News", all about researching using the library's newspapers. I will update the blog with the results next week.
