ArchiveGrid Introduction at Legacy News


Legacy news has published an introduction to ArchiveGrid, a website with "over 5 million records describing archival materials, bringing together information about historical documents, personal papers, family histories, and more."

The article explains that archive collections tend to be underutilized in family history research. "Why? Primarily because it  involves onsite research. These are collections that cannot be searched with a few words in an online database search box. But the treasures they hold are integral to an exhaustive search and can include facts that place your ancestor in a time and location."
