Research Websites

This is a list of websites that may help in your research.  I will add new ones as I find them.  If you know of one not listed here, please let me know and I will add it.

Keep in mind that manuscripts are not just for people who make scrolls - they might contain a drawing of what you are looking for.

If any of these links don't work for you, try putting them in  The Wayback Machine at archive.org

Search for multiple spellings of a word – jewelry , jewellery, jewelery / color, colour , gray/grey, etc

Search for foreign variations of words.

Search for misspellings of words.
