Newspapers and more newspapers

I LOVE newspapers!  They are just such a treasure chest of information.  I wanted to tell you about an upcoming Legacy webinar that I am pretty excited about. 

Get the Scoop on Your Ancestors with Newspapers by Lisa Louise Cooke
“Yearning to ‘read all about it?’ Newspapers are a fantastic source of research leads, information and historical context for your family history. Learn the specialized approach that is required to achieve success in locating the news on your ancestors. Includes 3 Cool Tech Tools that will get you started.”

You can watch it live (free) on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at 2:00 pm EST.   It will be archived and remain free for 7 days.  

Thomas Kemp (from has done several webinars on newspapers.  These are still free so you can watch them anytime you want.  

Thomas also have another newspaper webinar coming up on Wednesday, December 11, 2013 at 2:00 pm EST.

Family Stories: Using Newspapers to Reconnect with the Stories of Your Family's Past by Thomas Kemp
”As genealogists we want to learn who our ancestors and relatives are, to document them, learn the stories of their lives and pass them down to the rising generation. The old newspapers are the new tool for uncovering these stories. Newspapers were published every day of their lives – take this tour of the remarkable examples that can be found in GenealogyBank’s three centuries of newspaper archives. Find your family’s stories that have been lost over time – document them and preserve them. Don’t let your heritage be lost.”

Please take advantage of these free continuing education opportunities.   Tomorrow I will outline the newspaper resources that I utilize.
