Free webinar to focus on newspaper research

The Ontario Genealogical Society will present “A Nose for News“ on Thursday, June 1 at 7 p.m.

Newspaper research can help to further genealogy research in many ways. Existence of a name in a newspaper can pinpoint a location for an ancestor at a particular time. Mentions in the legal notices, property records or shipping notices can provide clues for additional research avenues such as court records, deeds and passenger manifests. This webinar includes nearly 20 top tips for getting the most out of newspaper research.
