This video clip is a short peek at Lisa Louise Cooke’s demo of one of the cool tools she’ll show you in her Spring 2012 Virtual Conference class, Three Cool Tools to Help With Your Newspaper Research.
You can log in anytime over the weekend to take classes, participate in live chats with genealogy experts, visit the exhibit hall and more. (And there’s a swag bag—who doesn’t love swag?)
Newspapers are invaluable for getting details about your ancestors’ lives and for tracing brick-wall ancestors (case in point: last Friday’s “Who Do you think You Are?” with Blair Underwood). But historical newspapers can be hard to find and use—so you’ll want to hear about the tools Lisa uses.
