Presentation Description

Newspapers are one of the most underutilized resources in family history research and yet they can be one of the most valuable. Attendees will learn more about how newspapers can take them far beyond the names and dates of their ancestors by enriching their research with unique stories and details that can only be found in newspapers.

Whether the challenge is overcoming a brick wall or learning more about the life of an ancestor, this class will teach you practical tips on how to get the most out of newspapers and obituaries. Participants will learn about the more than 9,000 online newspaper titles, published from 1690-today, available in GenealogyBank’s online Historical Newspaper Archives – while walking away with knowledge and resources that will allow them to immediately begin making discoveries of their own.
