Legacy Family Tree Webinars: FREE WEBINAR Newspapers for People of Color Genealogy Research presented by Nicka Smith, Wednesday, February 19th, 2020, 2:00 pm Eastern / 1:00 pm Central / 12:00 pm Mountain / 11:00 am Pacific. “You’ve done the research and have the strongest available evidence. Now you just need that soundly reasoned, coherently written conclusion based on that evidence. Newspapers can be a goldmine for genealogy, especially in the case of records destruction or when all other avenues have failed to yield findings on an ancestor. In this session, we’ll discuss all you need to know to get the most out of using periodicals as genealogical resources for people of color communities.”
