Family Stories: Using Newspapers to Reconnect with the Stories of Your Family's Past


As genealogists we want to learn who our ancestors and relatives are, to document them, learn the stories of their lives and pass them down to the rising generation. The old newspapers are the new tool for uncovering these stories. Newspapers were published every day of their lives & take this tour of the remarkable examples that can be found in GenealogyBank's three centuries of newspaper archives. Find your family's stories that have been lost over time & document them and preserve them. Don't let your heritage be lost.
