You've got your relative's skeleton consisting of dates and places. This talk will show you how to go about creating a newspaper clipping file on a relative to put flesh on that skeleton. We will explore newspapers in their original paper form, on microfilm and electronic versions that can be found using the Clayton Library. Also explored will be the hundreds of newspaper indexes and “clipping” books at Clayton Library.
