The last chapter in Volume 2 relates to local newspapers and periodicals.  With more and more old newspapers becoming available online, these are a wonderful resource for adding flesh to the skeleton of your family tree.  However, there are still many newspapers available to look at that have not yet been digitised so knowledge of what existed and what they can tell you is important.  This chapter provides samples of the major types of article you might find.

This chapter includes:

  • A brief outline of the history of national and local newspapers
  • Lists of what topics might be included in a newspaper and examples
  • Dates of earliest and latest newspapers
  • Information on the contents of Gazettes
  • Local newspapers
  • Gentleman’s Magazine and Gloucestershire Notes and Queries
