"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 ResearchFreedmen’s Bureau Project
This vital indexing project created from the partnerships of FamilySearch, NARA, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture, the Afro-American Historical & Genealogy Society, and California African American Museum will help African Americans reconnect with their Civil War-era ancestors. Supportive volunteers are needed to take these valuable historical records and index them so that they are available to the public. For more info, see discoverfreedmen.org
