Preservation Research

A nice easy way to start out some research on preservation topics is on the web. I like using Yahoo and more specifically the History Section of Yahoo!

But when it comes to things like Genealogy, there are a ton of places to go. I have checked out one that seems very good for beginners. A Genealogy Primer has good data on the U.S. Census.

Of course, citing the information is very important. The Turabian Method is the one we used for Roger Williams.

Several agencies use HABS/HAER, such as the Southwestern Pennsylvania Heritage Preservation Commission. They have several photos on the web.

Lastly, a good place to go from here is to the library with this bibliography.
