Use Project Gutenberg for awesome research.

Project Gutenberg is a remarkable research tool if you’re looking for historical facts.

Named after the inventor of the movable type printer, Project Gutenberg provides web access to over 50,000 books, with another 100,000 available through their partners.

Free books, people.

From Jane Austin to Mark Twain to Oscar Wilde. And the library doesn’t stop at the classics. Articles, essays, newspapers and small press books written by the everyday man (or woman) are also included.

A quick search yielded these volumes:

  • The Arts and Crafts of Ancient Egypt
  • Harpers Round Table, Feb 4, 1896
  • The Dispatch Carrier and Memoirs of Andersonville Prison
  • The Wonderful Wizard of OZ

I’ve used the site to research London prisons in the 1880’s and World War II nursing.

It’s a cornucopia of knowledge and a fascinating window into the normal life of our ancestors.

If you don’t have time to go to your local library, or want concrete results (instead of spinning on the web) from an on-line search, Project Gutenberg is a powerhouse research tool!

Happy researching!
