Searching Digitized Newspapers (1:30PM-3:30PM Session)
Nicole Hayes will demonstrate how to conduct effective searches of free digitized newspapers in Chronicling America (the Library of Congress online newspaper repository) as well as other free resources such as Ohio Memory, the Five Colleges of Ohio consortium, and aggregators like Ancestor Hunt. Time permitting, we’ll touch on what sorts of resources are available through commonly used paid platforms such as Newspapers.com, Ancestry.com and GenealogyBank.com.
