Family Genealogy & History Internet Education Directory

Examples: Top Search Engines and Directories
brings out the best, under Instructions for General
Internet Use. We have added, The Open University's
OpenLearn website: Information on the Web (T180_5)
Foundation skills to use search engines confidently
to locate both information and images on the Web
and learn how to critically assess and reference the
information you have found for study purposes.
Beginning on page 13, is #3.3 Focused search sites
"An alternative to using general purpose search engines
is to make use of focused search engines that only
index known genealogical sites. . . ."
Beginning on page 28, is an Appendix: Genealogical Resources

Schools - Colleges - Universities:
Alumni and Genealogy Education
now has a worldwide comprehensive resource
for current open online distance education,
under Online Education and Resources.

Besides having a "Massive List of Free Education
Online For Autodidacts", which includes tons of
educational resources, such as learning languages
on iTunes, there is Open Education Resources
(OER) Index. This site includes: "teaching and
learning materials that are freely available online
for everyone to use, whether you are an instructor,
student, or self-learner. Examples of OER include:
full courses, course modules, syllabi, lectures,
homework assignments, quizzes, lab and classroom
activities, pedagogical materials, games, simulations,
and many more resources contained in digital media
collections from around the world."

REPOSITORIES of interest include Fathom Archive,
provided by Columbia University, which has:
Jewish Studies, . . . " Hebrew manuscripts reflect
regional variations in materials, culture and religious
sensibility, and they consider how scribal practices
and literary tastes evolved over the centuries . . ."
.. . .
University of California eScholarship Repository has:
Objectivity in History, . . . The purpose of this
paper is to define a concept of objectivity based
on criteria of comparison, . . .
.. . .
Wikipedia, with its related WikiEducator,
developing free and open educational content for
the world. . . . " a partnership that will make it possible
to obtain high quality print and word processor copies
of articles from Wikipedia and other wiki educational
resources. . . ."

Additionally, on another side (just the tip of the ice burg),
is: Computer - Internet - Software: Genealogy Programs
Support for Photography & Digital Preservation has:
Picturing the family
" These photographs provide another type of record
that can offer insights into our family history. But
what can they tell us? How can we elicit the information
they hold? And how do we analyse or evaluate that
information? The purpose of this unit is to suggest
how to approach the interpretation of the photographic
record. . . ."
