Learning More About Your Ancestors Through Newspapers

 

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society is hosting a webinar: Learning More About Your Ancestors Through Newspapers. Tonight, Jan 9th @ 7pm (EST) Click here  for more information and to register.

I’ve found so much from newspapers like obituaries, birth and marriage announcements, information regarding court cases, land transfers, local event news and much more.  Newspapers give me a better idea of what my ancestor’s lives during the times especially when newspapers when other records are few and far between.

Newspapers.com has a 7 day free trial, check it out and see what information you can find.
