Newspaper archives teleconference, Oct. 28

Sharon Sergeant of Ancestral Manor offers a variety of genealogical teleconferences. The next one - Finding and Using Newspaper Sources - is free and will be held Sunday evening October 28.

Historical newspaper archives provide a tremendous resource for all types of researchers. Escalating digitization programs and search capabilities are making millions of pages of this content rich resource more readily accessible.

There are also microfilms of non-digitized issues available through interlibrary loan, and many repositories with bound volumes of newspaper issues, as well as antiquarian newspaper dealers who have millions of original issues at inexpensive prices.

This teleconference series begins with resources for understanding historical newspaper value and creating an research inventory of what newspapers may be of use in your research.
