Newspapers contain vast amounts of family history information beyond obituaries yet are often overlooked as a resource. This class will cover birth, death and marriage announcements as well as legal notices, estate, land, and tax information and community "gossip" columns. We will also discuss search strategies for locating newspaper holdings at the Ohio Historical Society through the online catalog. In addition, this workshop will introduce and demonstrate the use of Chronicling America and other digital newspaper resources for genealogy research. Pre-registration required.
