Clallam County Genealogical Society Finding & Using Historic Newspapers

Saturday, January 14th, the Clallam County Genealogical Society will meet at 10 am. Claudia Breeland will be the guest lecturer. The title of her presentation is “Finding and Using Historic Newspapers.”
Claudia is a professional genealogist, author, and a wonderful lecturer. She shares her experience to illustrate how she has found missing ancestors and answers to questions about the lives they led – answers found in newspapers. We will learn about the many online newspaper databases, both free and by prescription, as well as how to obtain news articles not found online.
News articles may include birth and death announcements, marriage, anniversary and baptism announcements, awards, travelers, parties, and visiting firemen, civil and criminal judgements, advertisements for your ancestor’s business, and so much more.
There is no charge for hearing this Zoom presentation. One can watch it at home or at the County Genealogical Society’s Research Center located at 403 E. 8th Street in Port Angeles.
