The Online Genealogist

John Brugliera

The DOAR is always wiiiiiiiide open at OpenDOAR!

This is one of those directory websites you could easily spend the day browsing through.

The OpenDOAR is the largest collection of links to most of the world’s major libraries, with an emphasis on college library eCollections and other online offerings.

Listed mainly by continent, there’s a large page for each of them!

The great thing here is that the link goes directly to the homepage for that repository’s online electronic databases.

All sorts of genealogical nuggets to be found here for SURE!

I have yet to get the dreaded “404 Error” via an OpenDOAR link, so it’s well-maintained. And as alluded to above, I’ve already hit several of them!

This is as far as I go for the show.  The fun here of course is BROWSING!  Just knowing what’s available for your specific research areas for future use is huge.

So, if you’re sitting around one rainy day and need an escape…

“Let’s go to FIJI!!…”
