I often get asked which is the best newspaper site. There are so many digital newspaper sites to choose from.The best newspaper site is the one that has the greatest number of stories about YOUR FAMILY. That is why it is so important to pay attention to the newspaper titles available on a site and the date range of those titles.
- in abundance."there were prizes galore for everything"
synonyms: aplenty, in abundance, in profusion, in great quantities, in large numbers, by the dozen
GenealogyBank.com has great coverage for two cities that interest me: Sacramento and New Orleans. Sacramento is my birthplace. I am doing research for a client in New Orleans. Genealogy Bank has really good coverage of the Sacramento Bee in the 1950's. That is a period in which I find many articles related to my family.
Here are a few samples of the articles on the Cimino family in the Sacramento Bee:
Grandpa George was a devoted golfer. I remember his many golf trophies
were displayed over the fireplace mantel on Parkside Court.
This is the engagement announcement for my Aunt Betty and Uncle Tony Cimino. Mary Frances Lutzy was Aunt Betty's sister. My cousins called her Aunt Tiny.
Here is an article about Uncle Tony playing basketball in the Municipal Basketball League. Lou Borovansky was a long-time friend of his.
My mother attended this shower and she is listed here as Mrs. Dick Cimino. Our family would visit with the Chuck Pratt family over the years. This shower was for Chuck's sister, Marcia.
My mother was a bridesmaid at this wedding.
I have to ask my dad why he did not attend the Senior Ball with mom. I remember Mom talking about Mimi Nicolaus and Owen Schermer. Shirley Spencer was one of her best friends from high school.
Newspaper articles are a very interesting window into the lives of our ancestors. Check the coverage for your cities before signing up for the pay sites. If you need any look-ups in Genealogy Bank, let me know.
