GenealogyBank Adds “My Folder” with Search Saving Capability

I’ve been a GenealogyBank fan since before their conception (that’s another story). I absolutely love our access to online newspapers – and GenealogyBank does a great job with it.

I got an email this morning with an announcement that GenealogyBank now has the capability of allowing subscribers to save their searches, save their places within a search, and save pages of interest to a Folder. I love it, as I often don’t have the time to save the search to my hard drive and database. Now if I have 10 minutes to search a long list of results, I can mark where I left off and come back to it later. If I find items of interest, I save them to my Folder, and can save them to my hard drive when I’ve got the time.

This morning, I did a search for my great grandfather, William Canfield, of New York. On the first page of 10 results out of 51, I located 2 items that were about the guy! I hadn’t seen these items before. I saved them to my Folder. When I get a few minutes, I will go back and search the other 41 items. This is very exciting!

Lots of Robertson Cousins Found in an 1896 Obituary this Morning & GenealogyBank Annual Subs for only $48.95!

Over the years I’ve continued to collect what little information I could find on my third-great-grandfather, Gold Canfield. He died in 1814 in the War of 1812, having frozen his arm while on guard duty in Harlem Heights, New York. His wife, Nancy Hayes, applied for a pension for her minor children following his death, leaving a decent widow’s pension file with quite a bit of family information – including the birth dates of the minor children.

About once every quarter or so, I’ll go into GenealogyBank.com, where I’ve kept a membership since it’s inception, and search for data on my more difficult ancestors. One of those I checked out this morning was “Gold Canfield.” Searching on the name Gold Canfield, I got 40 hits – one of them listed as an historical obituary. Clicking on the image teaser where I could see the words “Mary Ann Canfield Robertson,” I found an extremely detailed obituary for Gold’s daughter, Mary Ann. She died at the age of 84, having been born in Salem, Connecticut 20 August 1812. What’s amazing about the obit is the detail that is given about Mary Ann’s six living children. Not only does does the obit list their names, but details about the professional positions of the the girl’s husbands, and where they lived. It also gives Gold Canfield and Nancy Hayes as her parents.

I’ve heard it said that you can compile a family history based on obituaries alone, and although it would be inaccurate, I can see the point.

Searching Newspaper ‘Local Briefs’

The following article was written by my good friend, Tom Kemp:

Searching Newspaper ‘Local Briefs’ – Family History Gems that make Local Briefs Essential to your Family History Research.

Experienced genealogists rely on historical newspapers, tracking down obituaries, birth announcements and marriage notices to help fill in details on their family trees. However, many people don’t realize that newspapers provide another valuable resource for family history research, one that is often overlooked: the humble “local brief.”

These aren’t always about the next bake sale the local church is having—these short notices can turn up family details that appeared nowhere else in print.

Local Brief
Newspaper editors wanted to catch and keep their readers’ interest and attention. They did that by writing about their readers’ friends and neighbors, providing details about what was happening in their lives. In both small towns and big cities, readers were interested in their neighbors and in keeping up with how they were doing.

Key Family Information
Here is a good example. This is a typical “local matters” item of the sort that routinely appeared in newspapers around the country. This one appeared in the Aug. 28, 1917, issue of the Times Picayune (New Orleans, Louisiana). At first glance, it is just a simple article about a family’s visits:

Looking at it more closely, we see it has key family information. It gives us the following:

  • Names of the family members
  • Where they lived
  • Various family relationships
  • Brother’s military career

These are all great clues for piecing the family links together.

You’d be surprised how often these local briefs supply missing details about a family’s history. Don’t know what became of a relative, or whom she married, or where she moved to? One of these small notices can really come in handy, providing just the right clue you need to fill in a family gap that’s been stumping you.

“Society” Column
Many newspapers ran a “Society” column, in which the news tended to be about the more established, wealthier families in town. Other newspapers labeled similar columns “Local Briefs,” “Personals,” “Chatter,” or “Social Events,” and tended to include notes on a broad sweep of the middle class.

Here is another good example. The “Social & Personal” notice was printed in the June 17, 1928, issue of the Springfield Republican (Springfield, Massachusetts):

Look at how much family history we learn from a simple announcement that a local couple travelled to attend a wedding in Virginia! For one thing, we learn both the married name and the maiden name (often a difficult fact to establish) of three different women. We glean many names and relationships from several different families, covering three generations.

The social notice posted below was printed by the New York Herald (New York, New York) on Dec. 25, 1898:

Here we get a glimpse into a little slice of this family’s life that would not appear in an obituary, birth announcement or marriage notice, yet tells us something real and concrete about their lives. These are the details that, unless an ancestor left you a letter or diary, can’t be found anywhere else. These are the family history gems that make local briefs essential to your family history research.

Family Reunions

Newspapers also routinely published news of family reunions. These can be filled with family details like:

  • Names of first ancestors to settle in the area
  • Favorite recipes
  • Names of the oldest and youngest attendees
  • Names of those that came the longest distances to be there along with the locations where they now live
  • Favorite family stories
  • Colorful relatives
  • Details about the old family homestead, business or farm
  • Family photographs or the old familiar etchings that appeared in 19th century newspapers

As you can see, it’s worthwhile to keep society listings, social and personal columns, and local briefs in mind when searching old newspapers—don’t just focus on the obvious obituaries, birth announcements and marriage notices.

This is one more reason why an archive of historical newspapers—such as the collection of over 5,500 titles that GenealogyBank features—is a gold mine of facts and stories, one you will mine again and again as you pursue your family history research.

Newspapers: Obituaries and Death Records Provide a Wealth of Family History

The following article is by my friend, Tom Kemp.

“Two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar, all who love obits stand up and holler!”

That is probably not the way you heard that cheer in school, but genealogists sure do love obituaries. Obituaries and death notices provide a wealth of valuable information—not only about the person who died, but most contain references to other family members that can lead your family research into new, and sometimes unexpected, directions.

Here is a good example of how useful and informative, not to mention interesting, obituaries can be. I came across this obituary for Louise Cloutier (1789-1889).

It was published in the November 13, 1889, issue of the Daily Inter-Ocean newspaper. Born in Canada in 1789, Louise lived a remarkably long life (especially for her times!), not dying until 100 years later in Chicago.

What information and clues do we get from this obituary?

  1. Name
  2. Place and year of birth
  3. Name of the cemetery
  4. Date and place of the funeral and burial
  5. Names of her three living children, where they lived, and their position in the family’s birth order
  6. Names of the towns where she had lived and how long she lived in each one
  7. Age of husband at his death and how long ago that was
  8. Details on the longevity of her father (110 years) and grandfather (90 years)
  9. Count of her descendants, by generation
  10. Best of all: her picture as rendered in a wood-cut engraving!

Remember, newspapers contain a treasure trove of obituaries. As this story illustrates, newspapers are an essential tool for documenting American family histories.

Newspapers: The Key to Documenting Your Family History

The following article was written, by my friend, Tom Kemp:

Thomas Jay Kemp Genealogists are hungry for details about the lives of our ancestors, information that can only be found in newspapers. To get to know our ancestors better—the lives they lived, their hardships and triumphs—you need to know their stories. For that kind of information, nothing beats an archive of historical newspapers. Today there are thousands of newspapers online, from big cities and small towns all across America, easily searchable on the Internet.

Newspapers have been published in the U.S. since 1690. The great thing about newspapers is that most are published every day, providing information that gives genealogists the crucial details necessary to document every member on the family tree. Newspapers are essential to family history research, as the following two stories illustrate.

19th Century Tragedy in the Ayres Family
The Ayres family lived in Westchester County, New York, in the mid-nineteenth century. Census records provide important information about this family, but don’t tell the entire story. Tragedy struck the family in 1848, as we discover only by digging deeper into some old newspapers.

The 1850 Census for Greenburgh, Westchester County, New York, listed James Ayres (born in 1817) and his wife Ann (also born in 1817). The Census also listed their three children: James H. (born in 1842), Sarah (born in 1844), and Frederica (born in 1849).

Newspapers - Illustration 1

Looking at this family closely, we see that there is a suspicious five-year gap in the ages of the two youngest children: Sarah is 6 and Frederica 1. These gaps are often the most difficult to research—and yet often turn up the most interesting and poignant family history. You can’t rely on census records alone to find every member of a family, or the family’s complete story.

Death was something people in 1850 were all too familiar with. The life expectancy was only around 39 years. Infant mortality was shockingly high—roughly 22 out of every 100 live births died as infants. Is there an Ayres family tragedy that the above record does not reveal—was there a child born that had died before the 1850 Census? Newspapers provide the answer, revealing a painful part of the Ayres family history.

In the Dec. 12, 1848, issue of the Hudson River Chronicle (Sing Sing, New York), there is an obituary notice for the daughter of James and Ann Ayres: Lovina Ayres, who was born Aug. 7, 1846, and died Nov. 26, 1848.

Now, notice these dates: 1846 to 1848. Little Lovina was born and died in between the census years; she was gone before the 1850 Census began recording the names of every member of the Ayres family. And so, her name was never recorded in a census. Without the account in the Hudson River Chronicle this little girl might have been omitted from the Ayres family history.

And there is more. Accompanying the obituary, the family inserted this notice—and suddenly the personal connection is made, and we can feel the Ayres’ sorrow:

Newspapers Illustration 2

The Hudson River Chronicle gives us not only the fact that Lovina was their child, it gives us the actual poem that the parents chose to remember her by. For a brief moment we are standing there in the home—feeling the grief of our ancestors as they lived it.

Newspapers Fill In Gaps and Provide Intimate Details
Newspapers not only fill in gaps in census records, they provide intimate family details that humanize genealogy research. Imagine if the Ayres were part of your family tree and you found this newspaper notice. Suddenly, you’ve come to know something about their lives; you’ve shared their grief, holding onto the image of the smile on Lovina’s lips as their darling two-year-old girl passed away. They’ve become part of your family. Your family tree is just not complete without the details that are readily available in newspapers.

As this story illustrates, newspapers are an essential tool for documenting American family histories.

Readex Launches American Newspaper Archives

The folks at Readex (a division of NewsBank – the people that bring you GenealogyBank) are making a package of (initially) nine digitized historic newspapers available. The package will be called American Newspaper Archives. It looks to me like new product is packaged specifically for the college market – to be used by students & faculty. The product seems to cover most of the U.S. regions, and will probably work pretty well if you’re doing historical research in general. There’s a genealogy application, if your ancestor happened to live in one of these cities.

It looks to me like genealogists will be sticking with GenealogyBank, NewspaperARCHIVES and SmallTownPapers for their historic newspaper subscription needs to the greatest degree. This package is certainly not aimed at the genealogy market, and unless you happen to be going to school, my guess is you may not have access to it anyway.

Following is the press release:

APRIL 1, 2009 (NAPLES, FL) – Readex, a division of NewsBank, announced today the launch of American Newspaper Archives, an expanding online collection that will offer access to major U.S. newspapers. A part of America’s Historical Newspapers, the Archives will provide users with fully searchable digital editions of historically significant and regionally diverse publications from the 19th century through the 1990s.

American Newspaper Archives will initially feature nine papers and their relevant predecessors:

  • The Times-Picayune (New Orleans, Louisiana; 1837-1988),
  • The Plain-Dealer (Cleveland, Ohio; 1845-1991),
  • The Oregonian (Portland, Oregon; 1850-1987),
  • Press-Register (Mobile, Alabama; 1821-1992),
  • The Times (Trenton, New Jersey; 1883-1993),
  • The Seattle Times (Seattle, Washington; 1896-1984),
  • The Republican (Springfield, Massachusetts; 1850-1987),
  • The Dallas Morning News (Dallas, Texas; 1885-1984) and
  • The Augusta Chronicle (Augusta, Georgia; 1792-1993).

“Readex’s continued digitization of American newspapers brings our press coverage of U.S. history, culture and daily life into our very recent past,” says David Braden, President of Readex. “By enabling college students and faculty to search more than 10 million 20th-century newspaper pages, the Archives will present opportunities for fresh insight and new findings in many areas of study.”

American Newspaper Archives will provide regional perspectives and reporting on crucial conflicts from the War of 1812 to the Gulf War; movements ranging from women’s suffrage to civil rights; scientific and medical advances; noteworthy people; natural disasters; political campaigns; and much more. Each title is available individually, and all are cross-searchable via an integrated interface that allows users to easily view, magnify, print and save digital page images.

“American Newspaper Archives offers an unparalleled record of the people, issues and events that shaped history for more than two hundred years,” says Remmel Nunn, Readex Vice President for Product Development. “Together, these newspapers will enhance the ability of researchers to track trends over time and trace the background and development of today’s important issues.”

About Readex, a division of NewsBank
For more than 50 years, the Readex name has been synonymous with research in historical materials and government documents. Recognized by librarians, students and scholars for its efforts to transform academic scholarship, Readex continues to foster a greater understanding of U.S. and world history through cohesive access to primary source materials.

GenealogyBank.com Adds 170 Historical Newspapers in January Release

genealogybanklogoThe following announcement was released today by GenealogyBank. It seems they have added another 170 newspapers to their collection, with the total number of records posted since 2006 now estimated to be about 93 million. GenealogyBank is one of my favorite websites. It’s one that I consider a must-have in online genealogy subscription sites.

Following the News Release I have posted a list of the newspapers included in the January 2009 release.

Naples, FL (PRWEB) January 15, 2009 – GenealogyBank.com, the leading provider of digitized historical and recent newspapers for family history research, announced today the addition of 170 fully searchable historical newspaper articles. This record breaking addition includes over 7 million articles, modern obituaries and other helpful family history information. GenealogyBank.com continues to report explosive growth, increasing its digital archive with over 93 million records – a 58% increase since its launch in 2006.

To help researchers discover new information on millions of American families, GenealogyBank subscribers have access to four centuries of historical and modern newspapers and more than 1 billion names. Each article is a single digital image that can be printed and preserved for family scrapbooks.

GenealogyBank is the fastest growing website for family history research. This month’s release includes new and expanded information from big city dailies and regional weeklies from 31 states and more than 170 newspapers, including the Public Ledger (PA, 1836-1873), Evening Times (NJ, 1883-1922), Cincinnati Commercial Tribune (OH, 1869-1890), Oregonian (OR, 1861-1906), Grand Rapids Press (MI, 1901-1911), Hispanic-American titles and many more.

“This is an incredible milestone and great way to kick off the new year,” says Tom Kemp, Genealogy Director at NewsBank, inc. “December was a huge month for us.”

The website’s family research archive currently features over 3,700 newspapers from all 50 states published between 1690 and the present day. It offers genealogists of any level the opportunity to document the lives and times of their American ancestors.

GenealogyBank is the fastest growing website for family history research,” Kemp adds. “In 2008 alone, we digitized more than 39 million records and documents for researching past generations of Americans. These records include obituaries, marriage notices and the Social Security Death Index, as well as hometown news that record the everyday stories of our ancestors.”

The following papers were posted in the January, 2009 release. The first date on each line is the “start date,” with the second date being the “end date” of the papers for that title in the January release. Note that most of the papers are in the Historical Newspapers collection, with a few being in the more current Obituary collection.
