ROCKEFELLER LIBRARY UNVEILS NEW WEBSITE : The John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Library has unveiled a greatly expanded section on the Colonial Williamsburg website (http://www.history.org), offering individuals interested in the Colonial  Chesapeake the opportunity to search the library’s vast collections. New features include PATRIOT, the Rockefeller Library’s online catalog listing the 68,000 titles in the Library, and guides to manuscript,   microfilm, selected photograph and other research collections, such as the Shirley Plantation Collection of over 18,000 manuscript items.  Previously, individuals had to physically visit the library or be connected to an internal network to access these resources.

The RootsWeb project has two missions:
1) To make large volumes of data available to the online genealogical community at minimal cost.
2) To provide support services to online genealogical activities such as USENET newsgroup moderation, mailing list maintenance, surname list generation, etc.
RootsWeb’s own genealogy runs back more than a decade to the days of net.roots. RootsWeb folks have been involved since the early days of ROOTS-L and the Roots Surname List, and more recently were among the founders of the RAND Genealogy Club. We created the RootsWeb site to continue to support the genealogical community as the needs of the community outstripped the ability of RAND and other organizations to host the genealogical community on a guest basis.
