Learn more about exploring local and national newspapers. How many times have you wondered what your ancestor was actually like and what he or she got up to? Newspapers and journals are an excellent way of exploring your ancestors' lives: not only discovering incidents that affected them but also gaining an understanding of the times in which they lived. While Celia Heritage's talk concentrates on local newspapers, she will also explain how to use national newspaper collections and what to expect from these as well as how to determine which local newspapers covered which localities and how to access both digitised and non-digitised copies.
