In my opinion it is one of the top three methods to find information about one's ancestors.
Yet many folks do not take full advantage of this outstanding resource.
So in the interest of determining how you make use of newspaper research, I have decided to offer my readers the opportunity to take the poll below.
The results will be published in a couple of weeks. Thanks for your participation.
And as always - happy newspaper hunting!
There should be a question about how to improve newspaper research, but I suspect that the top two answers would likely be either 1) More newspapers available online, or 2) Better OCR quality. If you have any other suggestions, please let us know in the comments.
In any case, I hope your interest in using newspaper research to find articles about your ancestors is increasing.
