Meeting at Library 6 to 8 pm Wed Discussion on JSTOR etc.

Wednesday evening we will have a discussion on JSTOR and other like search capabilities.

One may have to go to a University or College to get information or you may be able to access from home with your old college  I D.

Some one said that you can access some data with out an I D.  I hope to know more before the evening chat.  Needing to refresh from my notes from past talk.

JSTOR searches, magazines, pamphlets and journals for information.  Maybe your ancestor was a Dr and you want data on him or maybe he was a Lawyer or a Judge.

One can never tell what one may find when researching in our past.

Knowing that my ancestor Henry Huffman (Hoffman after 1860's) listed himself as a farmer.
He was anything but a farmer. He  build many bridges, churches, schools and homes plus he build the first free standing spiral stairway and I have the newspaper clipping that describes the house and stairs.

Here are some interesting links you may want to share.
