This is a taped webinar video file that is chock full of hints, tips and recommendations on how to make complete use of The Library of Congress Chronicling America website.
Unfortunately most users do not know of, or use ALL the capabilities and resources that are available, focusing on just the Basic Search functions.
This minimizes their results and through this webinar, you will be able to find more results and tailored results to find articles about your ancestors.
Here are some of the topics discussed:
- What is Chronicling America?
- What are the hidden resources?
- Why it is so important for you to use the U.S. Newspaper Directory
- Why Browsing is such a critical part of your research repertoire and how to make best use of it
- How to best handle images you find so that you can optimize their later display and capture source citation information
- How to use Basic Search
- Why you should always use Advanced Search and how to optimize its capabilities
It is.delivered online and via a downloaded video file that you can easily acquire by clicking the whale below and taking the few steps and following the instructions to obtain this information.
Just like the fact that all the newspapers are not free to search and sometimes you have to pay a little to get what you want (via a subscription for example), this material is not free. However, this hour long webinar is definitely worth your small investment.
Please consider adding this information to your genealogy and family history reference collection.
