This week’s Wonderbase of the Week at World Vital Records, Inc. includes images from six newspapers from the NewspaperARCHIVE collection.
The images are completely searchable and viewable and will be free to access until October 25, 2007. These papers have added substantially to World Vital Records’ growing collection of newspapers.
The new newspapers include:
* Sioux County Capital from Orange City, Iowa
* Terril Tribune from Terril, Iowa
* Titusville Weekly Herald from Titusville, Pennsylvania
* Chippewa Valley News from Eau Claire, Wisconsin
* Huntingdon Daily Journal from Huntingdon, Pennsylvania
* People’s Friend from Orange City, Iowa
Note: Additional NewspaperARCHIVE databases will be added throughout this week.
Newspapers are a valuable resource that contain vital dates including births, marriages and deaths. They also can provide excellent historical background about ancestors’ lives, as well as anecdotal information to fill in the gaps between the vital dates.
