RootsTech Presentation Download: Newspapers for Genealogists

Wow—over 4,000 genealogists attended this year’s RootsTech conference in Salt Lake City last week. This must-attend conference was a nonstop opportunity to learn about the latest genealogy technology and to talk shop with like-minded genealogists from around the country. I have been attending genealogy conferences for nearly 50 years and RootsTech 2012 was the best ever. Plan now to attend the next RootsTech conference, on March 21-23, 2013!

GenealogyBank was there in force, with seven reps from our Team on-site to meet our members and explore their ideas, “wow” finds, and suggestions for GenealogyBank as we move into 2012.

At the RootsTech 2012 conference, I gave a presentation on searching newspapers for your family history that was well attended and very well received. If you were unable to attend my presentation at the conference in person, you can download a free copy of the PowerPoint slides I used, entitled “Newspapers for Genealogists: Document Every Day of Your Ancestors’ Lives” by clicking the Facebook “Like” button below:

  1. I'm running 10.1. I do have to tell you that when I closed my previous link after clicking on the like, and went back to it, the Like Button was no longer available to me, which I thought was interesting. I even tried opening Adobe to see if that would facilitate any action. Nothing. So, like Janice said below…I am not that dumb, but I am missing something.

  2. Yes, it did and thank you ever so much. Please let me add here that I love GenealogyBank and old newspapers. Thank you for this presentation and all of the newspapers.
