Make a List to Regularly (not Obsessively) Check

There are several free websites that periodically update their available items.string-finger-remember Make a list of these sites and what content you are looking for so that you can periodically check for updates. For me those sites include the Virginia Memory Collection‘s Chancery Court Records (Amherst County, where are you?) and the newspapers at the American Memory Collection at the Library of Congress.

Consider including locations and people of interest so you don’t overlook anyone when the content does come online. Many of the free sites don’t put out press releases–they just update when they update.
