Newspapers are an invaluable resource for researching family and local history. Contained within their pages are tens of millions of reports, advertisements and notices that can help you break down brick walls and tell richer stories about your ancestors. You will learn hints and tips on how to exploit over 300 years of newspaper articles from birth announcements to court reports. Together we will play detective to unlock the past’s hidden secrets.
