Meet NERGC Speaker Janeen Bjork, Expert on Newspaper Research
Thursday, February 2, 2017
Extra! Extra! Janeen Bjork has combined her 30 years of experience as a television researcher and presenter with her love of family history. Her methodology for locating hard-to-find newspaper items was developed as she uncovered 130 widely-varying accounts of the 1894 murder-suicide that left one of her great-great-grandfathers dead in Syracuse, New York. Her popular “Newspapers for Genealogy” classes, workshops, and presentations in CT, NY and MA, have helped many others research their families over the years.
