“Using Online Newspaper Databases” presented by Delia Cothrun Bourne – February 10, 2016 – Free Educational Genealogy Program
Newspapers provide a wealth of information about our ancestors’ lives, vital records, notices, tax records, biographical detail and local gossip. Online databases have made browsing and searching much easier. This presentation will demonstrate the major databases available at the Genealogy Center that you will find most useful for your family history search.
