Summary: Newspapers are valuable in genealogical research because you can find information about births, deaths, marriages, moves, business, naturalizations, court cases, and more. Millions of pages of the world's newspapers are now accessible online, but there is no one place to find them all. This class gives an overview of what is available online, ways to find the newspaper you are looking for, and techniques to help improve your chances of finding information about your relatives.
