About me: Jerry E. Reed
First and foremost, I am a seasoned voice talent and media/public relations specialist with many other interests. I have been helping businesses with their narrations, presentations, commercials, and more all of my adult life.

I am also a genealogist, a
n avid photographer, and artisan bread baker.
My genealogy interest began before personal computers were a family "must have." Personal genealogy computer research has blossomed in the past 15 years. It wasn't long before someone decided that they could charge for information that should be free and in the public domain. I have always been frustrated by that. Now, thousands and thousands of pages of useful facts are coming on line daily in free-to-access digital archives located all over the world. So, I'm constantly searching for new sources of free on line material. Blog updates follow this section and all links are added to the master list below the new posts.
Updates are posted when
I discover another new source or when something I have already reviewed gets a major update.
Have fun and enjoy.
Note: if you find a link no longer works, please let me know so I can research and update it.

Oklahoma Yesterday & Today at Oklahoma State University

Oklahoma Yesterday & Today in the digital collection of Oklahoma State University is a nice site that focuses on Oklahoma as a state and territory. Two specific collections are quite good; Chronicles of Oklahoma is the journal of the Oklahoma Historical Society, produced in cooperation with OHS, and the Encyclopedia of Oklahoma History and Culture also produced in cooperation with the Oklahoma Historical Society. Chronicles issues are available in html/text format for volumes 1-20 and the years 1923 to 1942. Volumes 21-40 are available in PDF format and the table of contents for later volumes are on line, while the actual articles for volumes 41- 80 are not yet available on-line.
