Top 10 Tips for Newspaper Research

Explore the treasure trove of family stories that await you in historic newspapers.  During my next presentation at the Willow Valley Genealogy Club, I'll share high-interest examples to demonstrate why newspapers can be the best source to “put the flesh on the bones” of your ancestors and truly understand the stories of their lives.  Learn how to access the newspapers that are available for various research locations and time periods, both digitized and non-digitized, subscription-based and free. Our session will also include my top 10 search tips and strategies which you can apply immediately to uncover more of your own fascinating family history.

Registration is required for the Tuesday, November 19th session at 2:00 p.m.
