One of the first things I need to do is to look at the U.S. National Archives to verify the info about the ships leaving for Haiti in 1824-1826. I have checked the newspapers, and though they have lots of info, we cannot yet put a hard number on the people who migrated to Hayti during this time.

The British seamen shipping archives are now online: http://bit.ly/wiPmuk

Also interesting, is the British archives’ new researchers’ personal page. It has the potential of becoming a new form of social media. http://bit.ly/wsDOZp

The U.S.A. National Archives still have a way to go. http://1.usa.gov/xpR3vP

Research now happens 75% online, and the rest flipping through papers, dusty document, and waiting at the desk to receive the documents.
