Thrifty Thursday: JSTOR Digital Library

JSTOR  is a digital library that holds a treasure trove of primary sources, journals, and books.
Many of these, including The William & Mary Quarterly,  are available free through their website. offers a basic search field and an advanced search option.

I entered the surname Cassingham and found an article of interest.

This article is available for download for a fee or I can read it online at no cost by registering for a MyJSTOR account.
 With an account I can have up to 3 items in my personal bookshelf for 14 days, after which I can remove the item(s) and select another one to view.

 Now, with my account created, I can read the article at my leisure online for free. is a great site to bookmark and add to your arsenal of genealogy references.
