Colonial Williamsburg Digital Library

There are just so many hidden research gems.  I was just looking around and stumbled across references to the Virginia Gazette being available online for 1730-1786, either by browsing or searching.  How had I missed that?

When I learned that it was available on the Colonial Williamsburg website, http://research.history.org/DigitalLibrary.cfm, I just had to check out what other gems might be there and learned there are also Manuscripts, York County Probate Inventories and other documents, digitized and waiting for eager researchers to discover!

Have you made a great discovery in these collections?
