Book Announcement: Genealogy Gems: Ultimate Research Strategies from Season One of the Genealogy Gems Podcast is out of print. Please visit the Genealogy Gems store for current book titles.
Newspapers: The genealogy databases once included in World Vital Records is now part of MyHeritage.
Gem: Some newspapers carry a history section or a 'looking back' column where they run old articles. World Vital Records only had a sampling of years from the past newspapers that are digitized. But the columns like "Twice Told Tales" that can be found in more recent newspapers, may include articles about the family that the website didn't have the originals of. So don't dismiss those new issues - you may find some real gems!
