Internet Archive of Books

Jennifer at Rainy Day Genealogy Readings posted about the Internet Archive at in her post here.

This Internet Archive is adding new content every day - they are mainly PDFs of out-of-copyright books, periodicals, and papers. The Archive has over 1 million PDF files.

Jennifer's link goes to the Allen County Public Library page at the Internet Archive - if you click on the This Just In link, you see that ACPL has added 4,488 books to date on the Internet Archive.

A cursory look at the list revealed several books of interest to me from New England, New York and England.

Nice post, Jennifer! Thanks.

That's so funny. Earlier today I did a Google search for my wife's 2nd-great grandmother and it linked me to the full text of the genealogy of the Dean family at the Internet Archive. I found several other books of interest with ease.

Quick tip - In the search term enter: subject:"Dean family" and it will narrow down your searches.
