On an almost warm, partially sunny morning this past Saturday, March 7, at 10:30 am, the Vermont Digital Newspaper Project  gave a presentation on how to use Chronicling America for genealogy research to an audience of near fifty people at the Vermont Genealogy Library in Fort Ethan Allen.

In the class, we addressed how VTDNP digitizes and selects content, how to search on Chronicling America, and offered some tips and tricks on how to effectively find information about relatives on Chronicling America.
