Colonial Williamsburg Foundation - Digital Collection

When most people think about The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation they often think of the wonderful living history village located in Virginia. Often overlooked is the on-line digital collection of documents relating to its history. Today's focus is just that. In the Colonial Williamsburg digital library you will find four sections:
* Manuscripts -transcripts and images of selected documents from seven of the Foundation’s collections
* Research Report Series -documents about the history of the origanization
* Virginia Gazettes (newspapers) - includes images of almost all the known issues
* York County Probate Inventories - these are transcripts from the original documents.
Take a look. Here's the link.
