=== Computer Networks and Bulletin Boards  ===
+
 
+
Computers with modems can be useful tools for obtaining information from selected archives and libraries. In a way, computer networks themselves serve as a library. The Internet, certain computer bulletin boards, and commercial on-line services help family history researchers:
+
 
+
**Locate other researchers
+
**Post queries
+
**Send and receive e-mail
+
**Search large databases
+
**Search computer libraries
+
**Join in computer chat and lecture sessions
+
 
+
You can find computerized research tips and information about ancestors from South Dakota in a variety of sources at local, state, national, and international levels. The list of sources is growing rapidly. Most of the information is available at no cost.
+
 
+
Addresses on the Internet change frequently. As of April 1997, the following sites are important gateways linking you to many more network and bulletin board sites:
