To all of you who have joined this almost 1,000 member community, as you may know I have been providing recorded webinars about historical newspaper research recently. To celebrate all members, I have reduced the price on all of these webinars for you. Please take advantage.

They are all about becoming a better newspaper researcher and are now quite inexpensive for you to acquire. You can check them out at http://www.theancestorhunt.com/educationtools.html
