JSTOR … incredible resource – are you taking advantage?


JSTOR … incredible resource – are you taking advantage?

Continuing my nostalgic run through some resources that are part of my genealogy “go to” bag, let’s now talk about JSTOR.

Though the website looks a little different than it did back in 2011-2013 when these articles were written, it’s still the same powerhouse of information as ever!  And, you can access much material for FREE (though you are limited in how much!).

My bookshelf is almost always filled with my allotted three journals!!!  I find it especially valuable when doing early VA and NC research as so many juicy publications can be found such as:
o       The William and Mary Quarterly
o       The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography
o       The Wisconsin Magazine of History
o       The South Carolina Historical Magazine
o       Register of Kentucky State Historical Society
o       Philosophical Transactions (1683-1775)
and so much more!

What “go to” resources do you use regularly as you research your ancestors?



Editor’s Note: Catch up on my posts about some other favorites – Linkpendium, Archivegrid, and Death Online.
