In July 2016 I received this information that may prove useful to readers of this page

I'm Elena from ForeverCurious  We are a group of librarians and educators who are curating and creating the best educational resources for kids on the web. Our next piece is a series of lesson plans using genealogy as a way to teach students about history.  I came across your great list of resources here while working on our next piece. Thank you! I thought maybe your site might also benefit from some of these other resources you may have missed. Thanks for all you do
