About this Event

If you are looking into your family history, be sure to consult one of the most prolific resources: newspapers.

Learn how to effectively search for people, obituaries and events in newspaper databases during this workshop on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, from 10 a.m.-noon.

Rebecca Knight, associate librarian in Reference and Instructional Services, will provide an overview of information that can be found in newspapers, offering insight into that information shows how people lived and what forces effected their lives.

In addition to introducing you to the newspapers available through UD Library, Museums and Press—both on-site and online—you will become familiar with databases, including The New York Times and America’s Historical Newspapers, and learn how the Delaware Digital Newspaper Project can help you in your search to build out your family history.

This workshop is open to the public. While workshops are free of charge, registration is required as seating is limited.

If you have questions regarding workshops, please call 302-831-2432 or email lib-workshops@udel.edu.
