Genealogy Workshop via Zoom – Finding and Using Historic Newspapers for Research
June 30, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm| Free
Historic newspapers can be an excellent source of information when researching your ancestors. In the earlier newspapers one may find simple records of birth, baptisms, and deaths, as well as marriage announcements. In the later 19th and 20th centuries it’s possible to find longer obituary records. Carol Ansel, Director at Godfrey Memorial Library, will look at the larger newspaper database paid subscriptions, as well as a large group of free resources.
