The topic I chose to screencast was about one of our Electronic Reference Products (ERP) called “Newspaper Archive.com”. This resource provides the researcher with access to over 5,000 digital newspapers as well as newspapers from around the world. Digital newspapers are a very powerful and useful tool to help you with your genealogical research.
This screencast currently exists within the Schaumburg Township District Library YouTube Channel. Our library has a multitude of online videos across a variety of subjects, topics and events. The “genealogy” component is also identified on our channel where you can now find 3 screencasts related to genealogy insights. The other genealogy screencasts that exist on our channel are titled “Using America’s Obituaries and Death Notices Database” and “A Tour of Tony’s Genealogy Blog at the Schaumburg Township District Library”. Check them both out if you were not aware of them.
Become familiar with the “how to use that database” screencast to help you make more ancestral discoveries.
You can get to all of the Schaumburg Township District Library YouTube videos at:
But enough about all of our wonderful library YouTube videos!
I know you are looking at this post to see THE YouTube screencast video about “Using Newspaper Archives.com for Your Genealogical Research”! So here it is. Get yourself in a nice comfortable chair. Relax and enjoy the 32 minute tour right below direct from YouTube:
My plan is to create even more helpful screencasts in the future related to resources and tools that can help you in your own genealogy research. Visit our library’s YouTube Channel linked above to access more genealogy screencasts that I plan on creating. “Follow” this blog since I will let you know of new screencasts with published new posts.
