  •  The BEST thing to happen to me... (1+ / 0-)

    ... for the sake of leaping advances in finding genealogy data (and knocking down brick walls, one of which was 45 years old) and getting copies of original documents from other countries (on free web sites, thanks to their taxpayers) is the Internet.  There are some days I damn near genuflect in front of my computer screen in gratitude.

    I have copies of documents and transcribed info going back 4-500 years I never would have gotten without the internet, and that's only been since I got my first computer in the late fall of '01 when I had to be shown where to turn on the computer because it had been years since I'd operated one and it was a different OS.

    Thank whatever beings (I usually call her Serendipity) that may exist, plus Ceiling Cat and Flying Spaghetti Monster, for advances in world-wide communication and information!  I wish America was as advanced as other countries when it comes to (free) digital images of early documents and easy search engines on certain sites.
