Old Newspapers for Genealogy: Obituaries, Births, Marriages, News and More!

While many old newspapers may be safely preserved in microfilmed collections, you might have trouble finding any mention of an ancestor unless you already know of an event that might have been reported, the newspaper in which the item would have appeared, or when they might have run an ad for a product or service.
