The New Jersey Digital Highway

The New Jersey Digital Highway [http://www.njdigitalhighway.org/] - Merging onto any highway can be a real challenge, but getting onto the New Jersey Digital Highway is a snap. Billed as the place "Where History, Culture, and Learning Merge", this digital archive brings together history and culture from the Garden State’s museums, libraries, archives, and historical societies. First-time visitors may want to perform a quick search via their search engine, or they can also browse the collections by time period or county. Visitors should definitely look at the collection titled "The Changing Face of New Jersey-The Immigration Experience From Earliest Times to the Present". Here, you can look through materials dating back to 1741 that include oral histories, photographs, diaries, and sheepskin deeds. >From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2007. http://scout.wisc.edu/
