Every year I like to re-read Val D. Greenwood’s “Researcher’s Guide to American Genealogy” (for a copy call: 1-866-641-3297).
It is a good review of core genealogical records.
With that in mind, let’s review the core value of newspapers: obituaries.
Obituaries are a key genealogical resource, providing a wealth of detail about the specific ancestor you’re researching as well as clues to push your family history searches into new—and sometimes unexpected—directions.
GenealogyBank recently held a webinar covering how you can best use obituaries in your genealogy research. The video recording of the genealogy webinar and the accompanying obituaries PowerPoint presentation are available below.
Watch the genealogy webinar about researching obituaries for family history information now!
We can do this! It’s a great day for genealogy!
