Using Newspapers to Research Your Ancestors– Finding Your Roots Genealogy Series
May 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
We find more than just obituaries when researching ancestors in newspapers. They’re a great tool for discovering details about how our ancestors lived, worked, and played. They fill gaps in our ancestors’ lives by providing the day–to–day events of communities, both small and large. Librarians from both the Maryland Department and the Periodicals Department will introduce the types of information you will find in newspapers to help you flesh out the story of your ancestors. Online, database, and microfilm newspaper collections will be discussed. Presented by Enoch Pratt Free Library/State Library Resource Center. This is a Virtual only event.
Date: Monday, May 9 Time: 2:00 pm – 3:30pm
Please call 410-662-4363 if you have any questions about the event, using online ticketing, or to register via phone. 9:00 am – 4:30 pm weekdays.
