History 101

If you have children or are in school yourself, here are some of the best sites on the internet for historical Research:

American Revolution The Complete History 1775-1783: The Complete History of The American Revolution

Eye Witness To History Your ringside seat to history - from the Ancient World to the present. History through the eyes of those who lived it, presented by Ibis Communications, Inc. a digital publisher of educational programming.

The U. S. Civil War. This has a fascinating history of the civil war in four minutes video. It also links to several sites with great detail on the aspects of this war.

Biography Channel This is the internet front for the Biography Channel. It changes daily for "This Day In History" events plus having a search function to look up people in history.

The History Channel's This Day in History This allows you enter dates to find events for specific dates such as your birthdate which can entertaining for younger children. I share a birthday with Dr. Seuss and have been pulling things out of my hat ever since.

Rootsweb. This is one of the best "starting places" for genealogical research. It is free. You will be enticed to get an Ancestry membership, but you can accomplish a great deal without spending money up front from the existing records and assistance from others researching the same surnames.

If there is a specific period or person in history that you would like assistance in finding, let me know.
