Most people know about BMD Birth, Marriage, and Death notices in newspapers and can understand how this information adds to your family history. Local news often mentions the activities of people in an area and many commercial advertisements describe occupations. Historic newspapers had extensive social columns that describe travel and details of people visiting relatives.

Institutional records such as census data has legal restrictions as to its release to the general public, however newspapers do not have this restriction. You can research any newspaper published, but census records are not accessible for at least 70 years and some vital records are not accessible for 100 years.

There are some historic newspapers online at www.theoldentimes.com.

Newspaper clippings alone provide a family history. I made a simple web page with only newspaper clippings at teamapproach.ca/simcoe. All of these images were found in www.PaperOfRecord.com.  It would have been impossible to find these family references in the physical newspapers, but the keyword search capability found many articles that provided insight into my family history. You will see how keywords are highlighted in yellow in some of the following examples.
