Please join us on Sunday, May 27, 2018, to hear Janice Sellers present
"Using Online Historical Jewish Newspapers for Genealogical Research."
Many historical Jewish newspapers are now available online, with more
being added regularly. Most are on free sites. This presentation gives
an overview of what is online and where it is, suggests access
strategies, discusses what to do if you don't read Hebrew or Yiddish,
and shows sample search results.
