NEWSPAPERS: BEYOND VITAL RECORDS
There is so much more to learn about your ancestors’ lives than just collecting birth, marriage and death data. Newspapers were the “social media” of the Victorian Era. This presentation demonstrates how newspapers can build our ancestors’ life stories. Discover newspapers across the country and what secrets they could reveal about family members
