Newspapers for Family History by Ian Waller (Thu. 25 Oct, 2018 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm)

We have surely all been sidetracked in our research when looking through the local newspaper.

However, newspapers frequently enable us to put the flesh on the bones and bring our ancestors alive. There is so much information from trade advertisements, court cases, potted histories associated with marriages or obituaries that they are a valuable resource. This talk looks at how to access them in the digital age and examines their usefulness.
