Second Saturday Series - Chronicling America Historic American Newspapers and Beyond

Nearly 14 million historic newspaper pages have been digitized and placed online in the last 11 years at the Library of Congress. Are your ancestors’ stories included among them? Learn a bit about the history of the Chronicling America project, take a tour of the website and perhaps, most importantly, discover a few of the state projects that have continued the work and have digitized even more of their state’s newspapers.

Dawn Bingaman began working on her genealogy as part of a Girl Scout project many years ago and continues to research almost daily. In 2011, she began ramping up her skill set by attending week-long genealogy institutes. She has attended all four major genealogical institutes in the United States, completing eleven courses to date. Dawn works full-time as an IT Manager and is the former Chair of the SGS Computer Interest Group.
