“Internet Archive Wayback Machine – Family History Update Webinar”

Donald R. Snow

Categories: IR, RT

Talk Abstract:
The Internet Archive is a free website with a goal of preserving the world’s knowledge and providing it to everyone for free. They do this be preserving copies of books, images, videos, music, anc snapshots of the entire world wide web periodically. The snapshots of the entire internet are stored in the Wayback Machine and you can find old websites there that have been changed or deleted from the internet. It is a major source of information for family history. This class will show how to use the Wayback Machine, what it contains, and how to be sure webpages that you find now on the internet are preserved in it. The notes for this class and related articles, all with active internet links, are posted on my website https://uvtagg.org/classes/dons/dons-classes.html.
