Join us for our Membership Meeting and our Second Saturday Speaker Series:
“Finding and Using Historic Newspapers” by Claudia Breland
There are many genealogy databases and family trees online where you can discover the names, dates and places of your ancestors’ lives.That’s the skeleton –now let’s put flesh on the bones and faces to the names by discovering the stories your ancestors lived. We’ll talk about the proliferation of newspaper databases online (both free and subscription) and how to obtain newspapers that are not online. Birth announcements, wedding notices,obituaries, and other stories illustrate the lives of those who came before us.
