The Internet Archive
Presenter: Michelle Patient
The Internet Archive is an invaluable research tool within which many echoes from our past are stored. This often overlooked online repository has a wide range of freely available, digitised items and is a place you can store yours.
Michelle will take us on a tour of its various hidden treasures, as well as talk about its history, purpose, and usefulness. It is also a place where you can deposit your digital items including text, picture and sound files and hence broaden its distribution to others now and into the future.
Some items are deeply buried and not so easy to find, but when found they can be a great addition to adding social and historical context as well as providing useful genealogy evidence.
