  • By going to wiki and following step by step we can often found sources that help.
  • First go the Main Page
    • Browsed by county/state or country and find ( example 40,000+ articles on Pennsylvania).
    • Clicked on a county/state or country page and this will lead to that page.
    • Under topics you will find many items to search (example American Indians) and you can then click and search.
    • You may found a list of sources (example Indians of Pennsylvania)
    • Then within these sources the one that you need(example Carlisle Indian Industrial School (Pennsylvania))
