Wisconsin's digital cornucopia

New on Cyndi's List is the web site "Kenosha County History: Images and Texts 1830s-1940s," which is awesome with eight full-text histories and more than 1300 images of people, buildings, businesses, churches, events, transportation, local government, and cityscapes in Wisconsin's southeasternmost county.

What may not be immediately obvious is that this is just one chapter out of more than three dozen in the State of Wisconsin Collection. Many are place-based, some are thematic (agriculture, maritime). If you have Wisconsin research targets, don't wait for me to highlight one chapter or the other.

May I mix you another metaphor to go with my headline? This is yet another multifaceted gem in Wisconsin's research crown.
