Program Type:History & Genealogy
Family History Hunters is an informal meeting for genealogists of all levels of experience. Led by genealogy specialist Joan Wood, along with Archives volunteer Janet Daniels, the group meets monthly to discuss tips and strategies for researching family history. Each meeting begins with a short introduction to a particular topic followed by a discussion where members are welcome to talk about their research successes and challenges. Whether you are a veteran researcher, or just beginning your family history, please join us.
This month's focus: Exploring Online Newspaper Websites. Let’s share some of our favorite both free and paid websites (it doesn’t have to be in the USA) like the archives' NEW Newspaper Archives online (Virginia, Maryland and West Va), Chronicling America, Fulton Postcards, and Chronicling Virginia to name a few.
