So I decided to write articles about what I had learned about this art and share them with you.
What a ride!
As I assess my progress with this barely year old (15 months to be exact) website and blog, it occurs to me that the abundance of articles have been about newspapers.
In fact there are almost 60 articles about newspaper research that have been published on this site in 2013. Wow - that is way more than I intended in the beginning of the year. Check many of them out in Newspapers! I think most of them are referenced there. There is lots to discover and believe me - I learned a lot while writing them.
I started a YouTube Channel in 2013 as well and over 90% of the tutorials (over 50) are about newspaper research. Check out the list in Newspapers! or visit my YouTube Channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/KennethRMarks.
The subscription sites such as Genealogy Bank and Newspapers.com continued to add to their collections. I don't want to leave out Newspaper Archive, but that site is a puzzlement to me sometimes and hard to discern what is new and updated.
The free sites such as Chronicling America and many state, province and country sites are making more and more newspapers available to us. And Elephind, the search engine out of New Zealand continues to make more collections available from across the world.
So yes it has been a banner year for newspaper research, especially for The Ancestor Hunt and myself.
Here's to an even better 2014!
And thank you to all my readers and viewers for spending a little time with me.
