A new family history research source?


An exciting discovery from RootsTech 2016 — the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is a free online library, started in 2010. It provides access to public domain and openly licensed searchable content held by the nation’s archives, libraries, museums and other cultural heritage institutions — in the form of books, photographs, maps and audiovisual materials. In one place, you can find items from a wide range of institutions, from small and local to large and national. DPLA is growing rapidly, continuing to add to its collection over time. Funding has been provided by sources such as Harvard University, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and others. visit at dp.la
