Ink & Ancestors: A Journalist's Perspective on Using Newspapers in Family Research by Jason Terrell

Most of us have the experience of searching for family information in newspapers, but how accurate are the results you find? Where does this information come from and is it reliable enough for me to include in my family tree? In this presentation, you'll not only learn how to best leverage newspapers in your research, but you'll also get some behind-the-scenes information about how news content is gathered and prepared for publication from a second-generation journalist, former journalism instructor, and family historian with over 30 years of experience working in newspapers - including a stint writing obituaries. Equipped with this knowledge, participants will be better positioned to research newspapers more efficiently and critically evaluate the information they uncover

Access will be through GoToWebinar.  Instructions and Connectivity Link will be forwarded via email to all registrants upon registration, six days prior and again 1 hour prior to the event.  Making the connection is quick and easy only requiring a computer and Internet connectivity from wherever you chose to watch the event. Your questions help drive the meetings, and we will be there to help each other.
