When I'm looking for similar resources for researching people in other states, I find myself stumbling around trying to find online collections about an unfamiliar area. Along comes a wonderful web site, The Digital State Archives. The website has so far gathered links to the digital resources of 36 states. The link for the state of Georgia, for example, provides a detailed listing of resources available with an active link to each collection. (note: The Georgia Virtual Vault link on the Georgia Digital State Archives page has changed in 2013, use http://cdm.sos.state.ga.us:8888/ instead.)
I've used the state links from The Digital State Archives to find new digital collections on a number of occasions, most recently when I was looking for information pertaining to Alabama, Florida, and Texas. It is always helpful to have an informative starting place when seeking additional online resources. The Digital State Archives is definitely worth adding to your Favorites list.
