Nina's choice

Dugdales's Antiquities of Warwickshire Illustrated (1656) online, p. 520

Canadian, Shakespeare-authorship researcher Nina Green gave her Phaeton email discussion-group a new year's gift in her December 31, 2015 message titled "Bookmarks". Green gave us permission to share her insight and her treasure trove of online resources with Oberon readers. Thanks, Nina!

Nina Green said:
I'm going to be away from my home computer for a while, so I've been transferring bookmarks to the laptop I'm taking with me. I thought Phaeton members and other Oxfordians might find some of them useful for Oxfordian research. The only two which are paid subscriptions are the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography and the Oxford English Dictionary, but the ODNB features an interesting biography every day which is free. 
Incidentally, and on a slightly different topic, I continue to find it absolutely amazing that one can access such an enormous number of old books online nowadays, thanks to the wonderful website, and the Google digitization project. 
We all owe an enormous debt of gratitude to the latter two, as well as to all the painstaking writers who in the late 1700s, 1800s and early 1900s researched their local English families and communities, and published the results of their work. Without those early researchers, many of them amateurs, much of that invaluable information would be almost inaccessible -- and because of them, and because of and the Google digitization project, it's available free online. 
Anyway, here's the list of bookmarks, and hopefully there will be something to interest you.

New Anonymous film trailer posted on YouTube

A second film trailer for Roland Emmerich's film, Anonymous , was posted on YouTube August 5, 2011. Emmerich's historical thriller about the Shakespeare authorship controversy is scheduled for wide-release in the U.S. October 28, 2011. A preview will be screened on Sept. 7, 2011 in downtown Portland, Oregon as part of the Shakespeare Authorship Research Centre 's annual  conference September 6-9, 2011 .  Anonymous will also be featured at the Toronto International Film Festival to be held September 8-18, 2011. Emmerich's film has Stratfordians aflutter, fearing examination of the traditional attribution of Shakespeare's plays may damage the brand. Instead of welcoming interest in Shakespeare's life and times, they are boarding up the windows against a flood of inquiry. The previously taboo topic of Shakespeare authorship is now allowed in the hallowed halls of Stratford-on-Avon so that a rear guard action against apostasy can be mounted. Paul Edmo

Canadian Adaptations of Shakespeare Project from the University of Guelph

  Quote from masthead of Canadian Adaptations of Shakespeare Project This treasure trove of a site offers much to Shakespeare omnivores, not least of which is the Spotlight feature on Aboriginal adaptations of Shakespeare  . Here's a snippet from the main page introduction of the site: T h e  Canadian Adaptations of Shakespeare Project   is the online resource for anyone interested in how Shakespeare's plays have been transformed and adapted in Canada. But it also contains a wealth of material that relates to all things Shakespearean. With the launch of CASP Version 2, we are pleased to expand the already ample offerings on the site. These include a significant increase in multimedia files; multiple new pages on new areas of research with an emerging focus on French Canada; a huge amount of special resources, including documents, books, scholarly articles, reviews, images, and the like; a literacy video game and perhaps the most comprehensive and intensely multi-mediated stud
