Need more ways to research genealogy online?

Join California Genealogical Society member and The California Nugget editor Janice Sellers as she presents “Read All about It! Using Online Newspapers for Genealogical Research” on Saturday, July 8th, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM.

How can it help me?
Newspapers are valuable in genealogical research because you can find information about births, marriages, deaths, moves, business, naturalizations, court cases, and more. Millions of pages of the world's newspapers are now accessible online, but there is no one place to find them all.

Janice says, “One of the first times I taught this, a friend of mine was in the classroom, but she ran out of the room in the middle of the class. When the class was over I found her in the library at a computer. She told me she was so excited by the the techniques I had described to look for her relatives in the newspaper that she couldn’t wait for the end of class to start!”

This class gives an overview of what is available online and techniques to help improve your chances of finding information about your relatives. Sign up today and see what you’ve been missing online!
