Gathering: Finding Your Ancestors in Company Employee Magazines and Trade Magazines
Join us Dennis Northcott, Missouri History Museum Archivist, discuss an underutilized resource, company employee magazines and trade magazines, that can be very valuable to give details about your ancestor. These magazines are packed with interesting facts about our ancestors, including articles on employees’ hobbies and military service; birth, death, and marriage announcements; photographs of employees’ children; announcements of promotions and retirements; and much more. This presentation will show many examples of content from these magazines and tips for locating them.
Doors will open at 6:30 pm; Presentation will begin at 7:00 pm
