Presented by Akron-Summit County Public Library, Special Collections Division at Online/Virtual Space

Aug 14 2021
Using Historical Newspapers in Your Genealogy Research

Learn about significant clues that historic newspapers can bring to your genealogy research.

Historical newspapers should be a “primary” source for all genealogists. From births to obituaries, estate notices to news stories, newspapers can fill in important details and help to paint a fuller picture of our ancestors’ lives. This class will take a look at accessing newspaper content through a variety of resources.

This program will be presented on Zoom. You will receive an e-mail with the participation weblink one day before the program. If you are unable to attend or do not have an e-mail address, please contact the Special Collections Division by phone at 330.643.9030 or by e-mail at

Be sure to check out the available newspaper databases on our Library website under databases by subject/newspapers.

We also have many books about newspaper research and also newspaper and article indexes throughout our genealogy and local history book collection.

Also, see the list of local area newspaper resources available in Special Collections.
