” ‘Read All About It!’ Genealogy Newspaper Research Online” is the topic of the Davis Genealogy Club’s free program on Tuesday, Feb. 19. It will be presented by researcher Kathryn Moore at 1 p.m. in the Valente Room at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St.

Birth announcements, marriage announcements, obituaries, court proceedings, town news and much more can be discovered in the newspaper, a treasure trove of genealogical information. Learning about an ancestor’s daily experiences through the local news helps flesh out those names in the family tree and bring family history to life.

In her presentation, Moore will discuss how to use the Internet to find, and in many cases, access the newspapers of your ancestor’s time and place using both free and subscription-based websites.

Moore has been doing family history research for more than 15 years, focusing on American research, and is the owner and founder of a genealogy research company, Generations Bound.

The Davis Genealogy Club has switched its meeting days to the third Tuesday of the month at 1 p.m. to alleviate parking concerns. All are welcome. The Genealogy Library at the Davis Senior Center continues to remain open to the public each Wednesday and Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. A volunteer is available during these hours to help with questions.

To learn more about the Davis Genealogy Club and library, visit www.davisgenealogy.org or call Lisa Henderson at 530-753-8943.
