470. JSTOR Daily Newsletter Might Be Fun

   JSTOR, in case you have not yet found it, is an academic website/data archive that is composed of articles in mostly collegiate journals. Among its many categories are sections on history, culture, anthropology, and sociology.
   Many of the articles have applications to family history, especially studies of communities and historical eras. Our ancestors did not exist in a vacuum, and many JSTOR authors have studied people and places relevant to genealogists. [Note: Searches are free, but downloads of articles will cost you.]
   Now in beta testing is a new free JSTOR Daily newsletter that some researchers might find interesting. You can sign up at http://daily.jstor.org/newsletter/.
