Newspaper Research by Sunny Jane Morton
Comparing the U.S. Newspaper Giants:Over a billion digitized newspaper pages are now searchable at online historical newspaper archives such as Chronicling America, FultonHistory.com, GenealogyBank, NewspaperArchive and Newspapers.com. But which should you use? Is it worth subscribing to one of the premium sites? Learn how they stack up for total amount of digitized content; geographic coverage; unique features and tools; subscription options; and more. My tips and comparative analyses will help you more confidently choose and use these newspaper websites. 1:00-3pm, doors open at 12:30

Proceeds from raffles/auctions/book sales are one of the ways to help our society continue to offer great educational opportunities.

Auction October 5th, 2024

Bring auction items to any EWGS meeting. 

Our goal is to raise over $1000 this year!

The Ways & Means Committee will be sending updates over the summer months. You’ll get sneak peeks at what may be in the auction.

And they will offer some easy-peasy ideas of items you can donate…possibly without even leaving home! 

See you in the Newspapers!
