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.
