Before it was History, it was News

This picture was taken at the Corning Public Library in Corning, New York. It was taped near the microfilm reader.

Newspapers are my favorite research source. You may not be able to find the information you want anywhere else. It is most valuable for cemetery search. I have found the obvious: obituaries and information about the people that died, but there are always many stories about the local cemeteries in town. You can piece the information together to create a great cemetery history.
