Genealogy Resources "Historical Newspapers"

Wow, what a gr8 resource of information!!   I just love historical newspapers.   This is my personal favorite.  It tells u everything u need 2 know about your ancestor.   It gives birth announcements, death announcements, marriage information, criminal information.     It is a wealth of information!  It clues u in to how your ancestors lived, went to church, got married, had picnics, graduated oh so much....  Beware to always confirm the information u find.   Sometimes, the newspaper can confirm information you obtained from other sources.    Verify, Verify, Verify all the information you find in a newspaper.  There are great resources on line for finding historical newspapers.   Try your local or state library!   Have a fun Thursday.   cg
