It’s always nice to read about how Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) keeps growing! Digital Public Library of America makes push to serve all 50 states by 2017 with $3.4 million from the Sloan and Knight foundations.
This is a wonderful resource. It’s unlikely that you will find your ancestor listed and you will likely gain some historical context for the period of time during which they lived or the community they lived in!
Share your best find from DPLA.
