Newspapers for Genealogists by Tom Kemp

Today's webinar, Newspapers for Genealogists: Using to document every day of yours ancestors' lives, is now available to view in our webinar archives. Tom Kemp reminded us that there is so much more to find in newspapers than just obituaries.

I loved one attendee's comment - just before signing off, I reminded everyone that "life is short - do genealogy first." She wrote,

"How did you know I was sitting here thinking 'I have to get all these other things done before I can let myself do genealogy,' when you made the comment that life is short so let everything else go and do genealogy today!  : ))"

In my defense, I don't think I suggested to "let everything else go," but what a fun life it would be if all we had to do was genealogy (and of course spend time with our living relatives every now and then). So get started by watching or re-watching what Tom had to teach us.
