Newspapers for Family History - a half-day course on 22 August

We will look at using newspapers for family history research, including The London, Belfast and Edinburgh Gazette. There is a wealth of information contained in newspapers and in the official Government Gazettes. This course examines the value of such publications particularly in regard to awards, promotions, bankruptcy,  etc., found in the Gazettes. We'll also look in depth at the new Newsroom at the British Library and the value of on-line newspapers not just form this country but worldwide.
