Newspaper research can add so much to your family history. Obituaries, announcements, news stories, and even advertisements offer us a glimpse into the life and times of our ancestors like no other record set can. This week’s #GENCHAT is all about newspapers!
Join us this Friday, 22 February 2013, as we discuss and share our best tips and tricks for using newspapers in your genealogy research. Bring with you your ideas to share, the title of your favorite resource, or a website or two to share with others in the community as we learn together.
The next genealogy #GENCHAT will take place on twitter this Friday, February 22nd at 9PM Central. Just for clarity, that’s:
- 10 PM Eastern
- 9PM Central
- 8PM Mountain
- 7PM Pacific.
