Check the date

When you are working with the Google News Archive collection always verify the date given on the file name and on the actual newspaper.

Here is one that is titled 1933 but the newspaper is really a 1964 edition.

The Morning Record – Apr 29, 1933 (1964)

I’ve posted on my blog several items about this problem:

I hope this latest “check the date” post will help you remember this simple rule.

Thank You.

Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy. I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others. Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.
