"Using Newspapers to connect your family to history"  (Other Societies/Organizations)
6:30 pm
Tandy Auditorium, Fort Worth Central Library, 500 W. 3rd Street, Fort Worth, TX
Old newspapers provide a wealth of insight into history and critical events as they were unfolding through time. Gone are the days of wading through back issues of newspapers to do genealogy research. Today, the Internet and digitization of old newspapers has made everything just a click away. Ila Johnson will explain how to access newspapers easily at home, your local library, or at your local Family History Center.
     Ila Johnson currently teaches genealogy courses at TCC's South Campus in the Senior Program. She lives in Fort Worth.
           Please note that this meeting is free and open to the general public. Parking meters are free after 6 p.m. The 3rd street garage is free for 2 1/2 hours, validate your ticket in the library. Come at 6 p.m. for coffee.
