Your Ancestors In The Newspapers, 2nd August 2017, 19:30 to 22:00 at Methodist Church Hall, Queensway, Bletchley, Milton Keynes (16.7 miles)
Richard Heaton's talk will provide an overview of the principal historic newspapers and periodical websites, both free and pay-per-view/subscriptions, which could help you research UK and Irish ancestors. He'll then move onto examples of what you are likely to find and why, followed by a look at some rare (forgotten) newspaper titles including examples of where to search for certain occupations and sporting ancestors. He will also look at newspaper sites beyond the UK and Ireland, and finally examine common pitfalls and what you can do to think your way around them.
Throughout, the talk will be illustrated with examples from Richard's own vast collection, and articles he's found which have helped him flesh out his own family tree - information he could only hope to find in historic newspapers.
Free. Buckinghamshire Family History Society welcomes non-members (a small donation is appreciated).
