Where can I find information about the Jackson 5?
We started with a search on Google using the keyword Jackson five and Jackson 5. Both searches gave very similar results. The search gave us the official Jackson 5 club website which is most likely to have information and links unavailable anywhere else. We also found the Jackson 5 page from the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.
HOT TIP: When looking for info on a person we always recommend trying to find their official website first, as the information is likely to be more accurate than fan sites.
These sites gave us the names of the Jackson 5 brothers: Jackie Jackson, Tito Jackson, Jermaine Jackson, Marlon Jackson, and of course the most famous of the five brothers, Michael Jackson.
To find out more about any of the Jackson 5 brothers, you could type their names into Google, or try a Biography website like the Encyclopedia of World Biography. For this site, you can either type in the keyword Jackson or select the area of the alphabet for Jackson and scroll through it. This site had an entry for Michael Jackson.
For more information on the Jackson 5 and Michael Jackson, you could try the Biography in Context database in the EPIC databases.
HOT TIP: To get to the EPIC databases you will need a password from your school librarian first. Or, you can log on to AnyQuestions.co.nz between 1 and 6pm Monday to Friday, and one of the librarians can help you online. Some EPIC databases may also be available through your public library.
HOT TIP: Another place to look is Wikipedia which has great coverage of many topics, including the Jackson 5. But you need to be aware that this information is contributed by lots of different people. If you are using this site, it always pays to check the information against that on other sites or in books from the library.
