Archive sites

Hi,

We have the PRO/NA web site and the National Archives of Australia (NAA) site, which is great by the way. What other archive sites are there that are similar to these two?

Here's 2-3 from my list

PRO/NA http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/militaryhistory/
NAA http://www.naa.gov.au/
London Gazette http://www.gazettes-online.co.uk/index.asp?webType=0

Re: Archive sites

Archives New Zealand has a searchable database of their files, which you then have to either go and see in person or perhaps order
http://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/

A brilliant resource for both New Zealand and world history is the NZ National Library's Papers Past site, which is digitising newspapers from all over NZ. They intend to digitise right up to 1950, however at the moment they have got to 1931. There are many world events reported in these newspapers and it's totally searchable and free.

The Auckland War Memorial Museum's Cenotaph Database is also a handy resource for people killed in the wars, and in some cases who've died since and their families have contributed biographies

Canadian Hurricane Photos in Vancouver Archive

For anyone interested in Canadian built Hurricanes, the archive link may be of interest as it contains a few unseen photos. These Hurricanes have two blade props but no aerial mast.

Click on each photo to enlarge.

http://searcharchives.vancouver.ca/h...ricane-taxiing

Lastly there is a link marked Airplanes, that opens up further archives

Re: Archive sites

Find a grave website and local obituary notices are helpful
