Using newspapers for genealogy research can yield many treasures beyond the standard obituary. Marriage announcements can provide many details about the families involved, not just the couple being married. Birth announcements can be the only record of this event. And, best of all, news about court appearances can be an invaluable key to court files, including divorces and other significant events. By following a trail of articles from Illinois to California to Missouri, we will follow a women’s life and her curious trail that would be impossible to find without newspaper articles. We will discuss various websites that provide access to newspapers and what to do when the newspaper you need is not online.
