“Chronicling America -- Using Historical Newspapers for Genealogy”

      DATE: Saturday, May 18, 2019
      TIME: 9:30 am
      WHERE: All-Purpose Roon at McMillan Memnorial Library, Wisconsin Rapids

The program will be presented by Bev Peaslee. Bev is a long time member of Heart O’ Wisconsin Genealogical Society and has held numerous offices. She is also currently working with the Town Clerk of Sherry to publish a book on the history of the township. Newspapers offer a fascinating look into the lives of our ancestors. In some cases, a local newspaper offers a look at the daily lives of our relatives, something a census or vital record cannot easily offer. Bev will show us how to use Chronicling America, a free, online searchable database of historic newspapers including the Wood County Reporter, which was printed from 1857 to 1923.
