Ventura County Genealogical Society presents "Free Family History Program"

Camarillo, California

LOCATION: Camarillo Library Community Room 4101 Las Posas Road, Camarillo, CA

PRESENTER: Judy Janes
TOPIC: "FINDING FAMILY IN DIGITAL NEWSPAPER COLLECTIONS"

Newspapers offer a broad range of information about our families. They reveal information that may not have been recorded anywhere else. While genealogists commonly use them to find marriages and deaths, newspapers also published stories about social happenings, legal matters, travel, advertisements, and important community events that shaped our ancestors' day-to-day lives. Digital newspaper collections have proliferated in recent years, and are searchable by name, keyword, or date. Come learn how to use this powerful new tool to uncover fascinating stories about your families.
