Gena Philbert Ortega’s article, “Dissertations and Theses as Genealogical Sources,” in Family Chronicle, November/December 2010, made me aware of the following databases:
- National Union Catalog of Manuscript Collections (NUCMC) (Library of Congress): http://www.loc.gov/coll/nucmc/. (According to the article, “This Library of Congress search engine provides a catalog of all types of manuscripts located at various institutions.” For information on using this website, go to: http://www.loc.gov/coll/nucmc/about-searching.html. Since not all institutions participate in NUCMC, you will find a list of those that do at: http://www.loc.gov/coll/nucmc/repositorieslist.html.
- Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations: http://www.ndltd.org/ (Ms. Ortega notes that this website, “Provides access to digitized theses and dissertations on an international level.”
- WorldCat: http://www.worldcat.org/ (Their website says it is “the world’s largest network of library content and services.”)
