Newspapers

Many libraries house newspaper archives. You can also search newspapers on Ancestry.com. Newspapers are great sources of family history information but many of us only stop at the obituaries or marriage sections. If you dig a little deeper you may find articles about organizations your ancestors belonged to, political activities they took part in, or even arrests. Older newspapers took time to note when someone traveled to visit someone or other events such as if they had a card game last night. These old newspapers also give you a reference to experience what life was like for them.
