New full-text items

The Georgia Archives is digitizing death certificate images. Currently available are 1919-1927. It is very nice. http://content.sos.state.ga.us/cdm4/gadeaths.php

The New York Times has also opened up their digital vault. Articles are available for free from 1851-1922 and 1987-present. These are PDF's so they look just like the original paper. www.nytimes.com

The Everton's Genealogical editor had an interesting observation in January/February 2008. With so much material being digitized family historians are able to do more and more original research online. I agree whole heartedly! It is very convenient but I sure will miss the surly courthouse employees!
