Using newspapers? Good! They are a must for your research and now with so many options for finding newspapers it’s a great time to be doing research. Learn about the various newspapers available, how to best navigate online search engines and what to do when the newspaper isn't online. Types of articles and ethnic newspapers will also be covered.

Her writings can be found on her blogs, Gena’s Genealogy and Food.Family.Ephemera. Her newest book is From the Family Kitchen (F + W Media 2012).
