About this event

Well I didn’t know that!” How searching online newspapers can reveal a surprising wealth of information about our ancestors & their lives.

This session will cover:

• the type of information that can be found in newspapers online;

• tips for researching ancestors - especially with common surnames;

• the importance of searching for places not just people;

• examples of online newspaper collections (free and subscription);

• some previously unknown family stories found in online newspapers – Well I didn’t know that!
