The Easton Public Library has added Gale eBooks and Gale Passenger and Immigration List Index to its growing list of online research tools and databases, which are free for Library patrons, and are available at any time.
Gale eBooks is a collection of top nonfiction titles that cover popular subject areas for research and learning. The digital book collection is available online 24/7 and offers a myriad of topics and subjects from A to Z. Patrons can highlight passages and make notes, download or print out their findings, and embed the citations right into their research.
Gale Passenger and Immigration List index compiles passenger lists and immigration content from more than 3,500 historical publications, naturalization records, government documents, ship manifests, and other historical sources. The index covers more than 5 million names of people who immigrated to North America between the late 1500s and mid-20th Century. The database provides searchers with the source in which the information was found, so they can do further research.
Both of these new resources can be accessed from the Digital Library on the Library’s website. Go to https://eastonlibrary.org/digital-library to check them out.
