The Family Tree Historical Newspapers Guide
How to Find your Ancestors in Archived NewspapersBook - 2018
"There are more historical newspaper resources than you think--and they're easier to access than you know. When researched properly, no other type of record can beat historical newspapers in "taking the pulse" of their times and places, recording not just the names of specific individuals, but also the information that was important to the community. This comprehensive how-to guide will show you how to harvest the "social media" of centuries past to learn facts about your ancestors as well as the flavor of the times they lived in. With step-by-step examples, case studies, templates, worksheets, and screenshots, this book lays out what genealogists can find in online (and offline) historical newspapers, from city dailies to weekly community papers to foreign-language gazetteers and publications from religious, ethnic, and labor societies" -- Publisher.

Genealogists are putting more emphasis on newspapers as primary sources of family history. Newspapers sometimes provide information that can't be found in other sources. This research tool shouldn't be overlooked.
