When I was little the only way to do research was to use our encyclopedia set or go to the library. Both now have entered the digital age. I've written an article on using the resources of public libraries for genealogy research which is in the June/July 2012 issue of Internet Genealogy. There is also an article on top sites for naturalization and immigration records by Diane L. Richard, which sounds like something I ought to have written.
