Genealogy Tip: One of the ways to take advantage of the fact that GenealogyBank is constantly adding new content is to use a feature on the newspapers’ search box that lets you search just on the content added since a certain time:

GenealogyBank adds millions of new records monthly, so keep searching. And good luck with your family history research!
