Newspapers are one of the best information resources when it comes to family history. Your ancestors may have shown up in the news for a numbers of reasons:
- Birth & Marriage Notices
- Business Successes
- Sports Honors
- Scandalous Affairs
- Criminal Offenses
- Real Estate Transactions
- Out-of-Town Travel
- House Calls & Social Gatherings
The Iron Range Research Center (IRRC) staff will be featuring newspaper resources during the first two sessions of its brand new “Genealogy Genie” classes. We will highlight both microfilm and digital versions of newspapers—including those that are available for free. We will also pay particular attention to Minnesota newspapers—especially Iron Range titles that are available either online or at the IRRC library.
Each session will last about an hour.
