Research Notes 2018-12-17

The Library of Congress has posted a massive collection of newspaper clippings from World War I online at the Library of Congress website. The clippings cover a period from 1914 to 1926 and includes almost 80,000 pages of war-related front pages, feature articles, editorial cartoons and more. You can search by keywords, browse the content chronologically and even download pages.

You will find details about the collection at the Library of Congress blog and the collections at


Another Bit of Newspaper Goodness . . .

This one comes from Michael John Neill’s Genealogy Tip of the Day blog and describes how to take advantage of tax lists found in historic newspapers.


The FamilySearch blog has several useful articles to help researchers decipher the 1790 census forms and find families there.


The week before Christmas may not be the best time for serious genealogy research but it is a great time to capture your current family history with photographs, favorite recipes, special decorations and traditions. These are gifts that will keep on giving to future generations.

What you see here is a screenshot from the Day One journal app on my iPhone. I use Day One to capture special moments as well as everyday things. I can take a photo right in the app and it will automatically add date, location and even weather. All I need to do is add a sentence or two to describe what it is and why it is special. These little treasures will be passed on to future generations and their stories will go with them.

The Day One journal app is available for both iOS and Android devices. Visit for details.
