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!

GenealogyBank adds new content to its Historical Newspaper Archives constantly, so keep searching. And good luck with your family history research!

  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.
