Some of my favourite sources of research come from links I find through a number of research newsletters. The ones I find most useful are:
LII (Librarians' Index to the Internet)
Neat New Stuff I Found this Week
From LII's Aug 11 issue, I give you these links:
Before and After the Great Fire of London
Worst Jobs in History, a hilarious and educational show with Time Team's Tony Robinson (Blackadder Fans will recognize him as Baldrick!)
For those of you with gardens, or very curious children *g*, Marylaine had a great site in her Aug 12 issue of NNSIFTW:
What's That Bug?
Meanwhile, in her Aug 4th newsletter, Tara at Research Buzz, which lists a combination of online research tools and cool research sites, linked to the 1911 Canadian Census Online - read her full review.
That should keep you busy. More later :-)
