British Library & Google deal

The British Library has announced that they have established a partnership with Google to allow the digitizing and indexing of out of copyright material held by the library. The material that has been earmarked for this project dates from 1700 – 1870.

Wooo Hoooo!! This is fantastic news for genealogists as the British Library is a treasure trove of material for the family historian.
