Photographic Archives: Hidden Clues

A much overlooked portion of genealogical research are online photograph and document archives.

Some of my favorites that are completely searchable by keywords and they are FREE! And please do not ASSUME that because an archive in Michigan, it won't contain anything about New Hampshire... you are so wrong.

Google Books

Cornell University's "Making of America"

Google News Archive

Harvard University VIA (Photographs)

The Internet Archive (Photographs, Documents, Newsreels)
