"WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS, TRY THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER"
Presented by Roger Dudley,
Reference Librarian and Archivist, Denver Public Library
 
This talk will examine the types of information that can be gleaned from local newspapers - and often no places else. It contains aa case study of my experience searching for my 4th great grandfather's death. I will also talk about locating newspapers both on line and on microfilm.
 
Roger Dudley was born and raised in Denver, attended Mesa College in Grand Junction when it was a junior college, Colorado State College in Greeley graduating after it became the University of Northern Colorado, and got a masters in Library Science from Emporia State University.  After a 35-year career in video production he retired from Public Service Company of Colorado and has been a reference librarian and archivist at the Denver Public Library for the past 13 years assisting people with questions about genealogy, house history, general history and anything else that can be imagined.  He has written two books - one for his family (Kravig) and one for every genealogist on the planet called In Their Time available as print on demand.

How about using the Card Catalog to find a specific set of records you want to look at

Do you know how to download information and pictures from public trees to your online family tree or your Computer?
