Newspaper Research. Dick Eastman recently had a number of links to online newspapers.

· The first is Elephind.com, a search engine that searches free newspaper databases (EOGN, Mar 22, 2017). I did a search, and for American he results mainly came from Chronicling America, the Library of Congress Newspaper site. But it finds a lot of Australian and New Zealand newspapers.

· The British National Archives are adding more and more newspapers (EOGN, Mar 21, 2017). Searching is free, but to see more than the snippets, you will need to pay (and I think it is rather expensive). Lwe have Fulton History, with a plethora of New York and Northern New Jersey Newspapers, but others as well (and it is free). Give them a try, who knows what you'll find. And if you can, take Joe Suplicki's class on April 8 (see above).

Books

The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy & the “Ethnic Mix” Results (Rootdig, Mar 22, 2017)

 

Their Name is Wicks’: One Family’s Journey Through Shaker History, by Ann C. Sayers. The book shines a light on the peak years of Shaker history, from the 1820s to the 1850s, and will be available at the Shaker Heritage Society shop and at other bookstores in the Albany area (NY Hist. Blog, Mar 11, 2017)

 

Sex in Middlesex, Popular Mores in a Massachusetts County, 1649-1699, by Roger Thompson (Amherst, Mass.: University of Massachusetts Press, 1986; reprint 2012). The book pulls its facts from the Middlesex County, MA, court records. There are many reasons to read the book: the introduction with a detailed description of Middlesex County and its court records, and the many endnotes that contain citations to a virtual reading list of historical works (as of 1986) about this topic. But he does name names, and it is possible to find some relative (I did), which makes the book both educational and entertaining (Vita Brevis, Mar 17, 2017)

Newspaper Research. Dick Eastman recently had a number of links to online newspapers.

· The first is Elephind.com, a search engine that searches free newspaper databases (EOGN, Mar 22, 2017). I did a search, and for American newspapers the results mainly came from Chronicling America, the Library of Congress Newspaper site. But it finds a lot of Australian and New Zealand newspapers.

· The British National Archives are adding more and more newspapers (EOGN, Mar 21, 2017). Searching is free, but to see more than the snippets, you will need to pay (and I think it is rather expensive). Locally of course we have Fulton History, with a plethora of New York and Northern New Jersey Newspapers, but others as well (and it is free). Give them a try, who knows what you'll find. And if you can, take Joe Suplicki's class on April 8 (see above).

Books

The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy & the “Ethnic Mix” Results (Rootdig, Mar 22, 2017)

 

Their Name is Wicks’: One Family’s Journey Through Shaker History, by Ann C. Sayers. The book shines a light on the peak years of Shaker history, from the 1820s to the 1850s, and will be available at the Shaker Heritage Society shop and at other bookstores in the Albany area (NY Hist. Blog, Mar 11, 2017)

 

Sex in Middlesex, Popular Mores in a Massachusetts County, 1649-1699, by Roger Thompson (Amherst, Mass.: University of Massachusetts Press, 1986; reprint 2012). The book pulls its facts from the Middlesex County, MA, court records. There are many reasons to read the book: the introduction with a detailed description of Middlesex County and its court records, and the many endnotes that contain citations to a virtual reading list of historical works (as of 1986) about this topic. But he does name names, and it is possible to find some relative (I did), which makes the book both educational and entertaining (Vita Brevis, Mar 17, 2017)

Books

The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy & the “Ethnic Mix” Results (Rootdig, Mar 22, 2017)

 

Their Name is Wicks’: One Family’s Journey Through Shaker History, by Ann C. Sayers. The book shines a light on the peak years of Shaker history, from the 1820s to the 1850s, and will be available at the Shaker Heritage Society shop and at other bookstores in the Albany area (NY Hist. Blog, Mar 11, 2017)

 

Sex in Middlesex, Popular Mores in a Massachusetts County, 1649-1699, by Roger Thompson (Amherst, Mass.: University of Massachusetts Press, 1986; reprint 2012). The book pulls its facts from the Middlesex County, MA, court records. There are many reasons to read the book: the introduction with a detailed description of Middlesex County and its court records, and the many endnotes that contain citations to a virtual reading list of historical works (as of 1986) about this topic. But he does name names, and it is possible to find some relative (I did), which makes the book both educational and entertaining (Vita Brevis, Mar 17, 2017)

Newspaper Research. Dick Eastman recently had a number of links to online newspapers.

· The first is Elephind.com, a search engine that searches free newspaper databases (EOGN, Mar 22, 2017). I did a search, and for American newspapers the results mainly came from Chronicling America, the Library of Congress Newspaper site. But it finds a lot of Australian and New Zealand newspapers.

· The British National Archives are adding more and more newspapers (EOGN, Mar 21, 2017). Searching is free, but to see more than the snippets, you will need to pay (and I think it is rather expensive). Locally of course we have Fulton History, with a plethora of New York and Northern New Jersey Newspapers, but others as well (and it is free). Give them a try, who knows what you'll find. And if you can, take Joe Suplicki's class on April 8 (see above).

Books

The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy & the “Ethnic Mix” Results (Rootdig, Mar 22, 2017)

 

Their Name is Wicks’: One Family’s Journey Through Shaker History, by Ann C. Sayers. The book shines a light on the peak years of Shaker history, from the 1820s to the 1850s, and will be available at the Shaker Heritage Society shop and at other bookstores in the Albany area (NY Hist. Blog, Mar 11, 2017)

 

Sex in Middlesex, Popular Mores in a Massachusetts County, 1649-1699, by Roger Thompson (Amherst, Mass.: University of Massachusetts Press, 1986; reprint 2012). The book pulls its facts from the Middlesex County, MA, court records. There are many reasons to read the book: the introduction with a detailed description of Middlesex County and its court records, and the many endnotes that contain citations to a virtual reading list of historical works (as of 1986) about this topic. But he does name names, and it is possible to find some relative (I did), which makes the book both educational and entertaining (Vita Brevis, Mar 17, 2017)

Newspaper Research. Dick Eastman recently had a number of links to online newspapers.

·The first is Elephind.com, a search engine that searches free newspaper databases (EOGN, Mar 22, 2017). I did a search, and for American newspapers the results mainly came from Chronicling America, the Library of Congress Newspaper site. But it finds a lot of Australian and New Zealand newspapers.

·The British National Archives are adding more and more newspapers (EOGN, Mar 21, 2017). Searching is free, but to see more than the snippets, you will need to pay (and I think it is rather expensive). Locally of course we have Fulton History, with a plethora of New York and Northern New Jersey Newspapers, but others as well (and it is free). Give them a try, who knows what you'll find. And if you can, take Joe Suplicki's class on April 8 (see above).
