Find Your Ancestors in Historical Newspapers

We’ll look at several techniques for finding your ancestor’s obituary, business listing, story or experience in newspapers both online and offline. Websites we'll cover include NewspaperArchive (available free at the FHC),, GenealogyBank, and more. We'll also talk about the role of libraries and genealogy societies in offline newspaper searches.

    Looking forward to learning which websites are recommended for Chicago research. REALLY looking forward to meeting like-minded folks in this group ...people that know the neighborhoods and local geography.
