Genealogy Tip: One of the ways to take advantage of the fact that GenealogyBank is always adding new content is to use a feature on the newspapers’ search results page that lets you search just on the content added since a certain time. With this feature, found along the left-hand side of the search results page, you can search only on the newest content – even newspaper articles GenealogyBank added within the past week!

  1. I am so thankful for all the help and information from GenealogyBank. They make my search for my Genealogy easier!
    I always look forward to reading from GenealogyBank.

  2. Thank you for adding The Sacramento Bee. My four-year-old daughter had a story published about her while she was a heart patient at Sacramento Medical Center. We had never seen the story. Today, with your help, I did. She is now 51 and still a heart patient. I shared the article with her, and she is delighted. Thank you, again, for this wonderful service you provide.

    1. Mary – What an incredible experience! Thank you for sharing that with us! We hope that all of our members have a similar experience. Thanks for being a member of GenealogyBank.
