Genealogy: Newspapers and Periodicals
Newspapers and periodicals are, for the genealogist, the day-to-day (or week-to-week) diaries of local community events, giving accounts of contemporary events, and often including details recorded nowhere else. This lecture will discuss what can be found in newspapers, how to track them down, and how to search them most effectively and efficiently. To sign up for this class, download our registration form
