Research Notes 2018-11-26

The after Thanksgiving sales are in full swing but for genealogists, one of the best gifts of the season is found at Kenneth R. Marks’ The Ancestor Hunt blog with his end-of-the-year-update on free online U.S. historical newsletters. This update includes 25,500 links to newspapers across the country. When you follow the link to the article you will see a list of state summaries. Click on a state to view that state’s collections.


Not only will you find newspapers, you will also find a surprising number of historic newspaper collections like this one from the Digital Library of Georgia.


Ancestry, FamilySearch, MyHeritage and other online genealogy archives have impressive records collections, but they aren’t the only sources available to us. For that reason, we have begun building a research directory at SAGS Support. The Research Directory will never compete with the big guys or with Cyndi’s List (but we do link to her site). Our directory is focused on freely accessible archives from states, universities and others. We are kicking off our Research Directory page with a section on Newspaper Resources. Additional sections will be added regularly. Stop by the Research Directory and see for yourself.


Final Notes

Each new post published at SAGS Support is automatically emailed to member subscribers and/or delivered to their newsreader. Research Notes is published every Monday morning and other articles are posted during the week. Subscribers have the option to control how often these updates are delivered. Look down at the bottom of this message and you will find a Manage Subscriptions link in the fine print as you see in this example. Click it and you will be taken to the Subscription Management page. Use the Delivery Frequency column to change your delivery options from “Immediate” to either “Daily” or “Weekly”.

Sample of the “fine print” at the bottom of each post.

Also down at the bottom of each delivered post is a Comment button. If you would like to comment on something discussed in a post or ask a question, just click the Comment button and you will be taken online to the comment section of the post where you can share your thoughts and read what others have shared.
