What can you learn about your ancestors in the news? Just about anything! Obituaries, announcements of all kinds, court reports, news items and more. All may contain information about your family. Sometimes these news reports may be the only record of an event. Online collections make searching newspapers easier than ever. Indexes, where available, make print or film copies accessible as well. Read about your ancestors in the news!
