I Read It In The News!


The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is:

I read it in the news!

- ¤ -

Newspapers can be a wonderful source of family history information.
Share some aspect about your family history that you
learned about in a newspaper.

- ¤ -

Articles, advertisements, obituaries, classified ads,
photos... all are fair game if they appeared in a newspaper.

- ¤ -

Don’t be shy now, show us what you’ve got!

- ¤ -

What did you learn about your family from this information?
Was the information accurate?
How did you learn about this information... online search?
Perusing old newspapers?
A clipping saved by a relative?

- ¤ -

Fill us in on your family scoops... who in your family was in the news?

- ¤ -
