    "Newspapers" presented by Dr. Deborah Abbott

    Newspapers contain rich treasures, and a close look at them will unveil a life about your ancestor that you didn't know existed. The presentation will be followed by a breakout session on using newspaper documents.

    Dr. Deborah Abbott is a national genealogical speaker (member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and Genealogical Speakers Guild); lecturer on a wide range of genealogy topics; a Trustee on the Board of the Ohio Genealogical Society (OGS); past AAGS-Cleveland President; and adjunct faculty member at Samford University Institute of Genealogy & Historical Research
