Newspapers in Family History Research
Collecting vital records makes up a lot of family history research, but we want something more, don’t we? We want the story— the kind newspapers tell! We learn the story of our ancestor’s lives through obituaries. We see their weddings, anniversaries, death notices, and sometimes even get a picture.

Did your ancestor come from a small town? Did their actions “make the paper”? How can you go about looking for the newspaper they might have been in? Join Chris Seggerman of the State Library of Arizona for an hour devoted to learning how to find family stories in newspapers— perhaps even family skeletons!
