I'm a full time Library Technician and part time Student working towards an MLIS.  I had three wonderful years of living in the greater Paris area, and now I'm just down the road in Brussels. I'm always happy to trek back to Paris or to share what I know about the city.  My children have had to do various American history projects, and Paris provided so many historical sights for them to explore. I hope you enjoy the collection of web links curated into this LibGuide and find it useful for your family's history projects.
