    Great help! Thanks!

    Great hints for how to research newspapers. Loved the idea of putting a place in the name field.

    Great hints! I wouldn’t think of following an “ex” for information on a person/family. Comments about how My Heritage works for linking trees with newspaper articles, using name fields for keywords, etc. are going to make my searches more efficient!

    Great ideas. Most of the newspapers I need to access are not digitized, but My Heritage has useful clips from them anyway! Can’t wait to look for more.

    Thank you for all those tips. (I wish I had an “override” button so I could give 6 stars!)

    Thank you for the information regarding finding newspaper articles. It sounds like Sunny knows a lot about genealogy research in Ohio. Maybe she can do a webinar in the future on that subject.
