I have found in my 7 years of doing research that when I began there was
little on the web and now there is a great deal which certainly makes my
work easier using records, indexes and discussion groups online. But I also
found that while I don't have to go to the NYPL or NARA as often for
passenger manifests and census records, there are still many records that
are not online and only by going to archives can this material be retrieved.
I also found that when I found a record in an archive and/or online it led
me back online and/or to go again to the NYC archives and get more
information. Using each resource is fabulous in breaking down brick walls!
